How did God transform an unlikely generation with the Jesus movement, and how can He do it again today?
God is always passionate about transforming unlikely people into His most faithful followers. Prostitutes and pagans, tax collectors and trixters, the pompous and the pious are all groups that God can reach with power and conviction. The more the unlikely the redemption, the more it seems to please God to show His power, might, and mercy through their testimonies. America in the 1960s and 1970s was filled with many unlikely young men and women who rejected the conformist religion of their parents. They were iconoclasts who had no desire to follow the rules or fit in. The field was ripe for the harvest for the greatest spiritual awakening of the twentieth century.
Greg Laurie and Ellen Vaughn use clarity, humor, passion, and purpose to tell the uncanny true story of the Jesus Movement, a remarkable time of mass revival, renewal, and reconciliation. Explore important parallels with our own time of spiritual apathy, and discover a renewed sense of hope for the next generation of unlikely believers. Look ahead for the next great American revival.
God can always bring a new Jesus Revolution.
