God has always been interested in turning unlikely people into his most fervent followers. Prostitutes and pagans, tax collectors and tricksters. The more unlikely, the more it seemed to please God and to demonstrate his power, might, and mercy. America in the 1960s and 1970s was full of unlikely people--men and women who had rejected the stuffy religion of their parents' generation, who didn't follow the rules, didn't fit in. The perfect setting for the greatest spiritual awakening of the 20th century.
With passion and purpose, Greg Laurie and Ellen Vaughn tell the amazing true story of the Jesus Movement, an extraordinary time of mass revival, renewal, and reconciliation. Setting fascinating personal stories within the context of one of the most tumultuous times in modern history, the authors draw important parallels with our own time of spiritual apathy or outright hostility, offering hope for the next generation of unlikely believers--and for the next great American revival.
Those who lived through the Jesus Revolution will find here an inspiring reminder of the times and people that shaped their lives and faith. Younger readers will discover a forgotten part of recent American history and, along with it, a reason to believe that God is not finished with their generation.
- We Need A Revival, We Need Jesus!
The Jesus Revolution Book captured the uncertainty, vulnerability, confusion, and authenticity of the time period of the 1960’s and 1970’s. This was one of the four “Great American Revivals known as “The Jesus Movement!”
This book for me reminds me of the excitement of those days as a young girl in my teens, I too experienced this great revival at Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa.
I remembered sitting up front with my best friend on the carpet close to the bands. We were singing scriptures in rounds, listening to artists like Love Song singing about the Hippies for God with”Little Country Church “ and Children of The Day “For These Tears I Died”
We needed a Savior and His Name was Jesus!
Today, In these uncertain times, I believe we are experiencing the same kind of desperation and emptiness similar to the days of the 1960’s and 1970’s. A time of loneliness, heartbreak, and confusion. The need is so great that many people need to change their lives to God and many hearts need to Return to their First Love-Jesus once again!
We Need A Revival, We Need Jesus!
