Publisher's Summary

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 listeners 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.

History retold, not rewritten

Often today, history is being rewritten or whitewashed to not tell the whole story. With Jesus Revolution, that is not the case.

If you love history and want to learn about this slice from the 60's & 70's you will love this book. I lived through both of these decades but was too young during the 60's to know a lot that occurred then so this was educational for me. I did know more about the 70's but learned a lot I did not know about that decade too

This history is told through the lens of Greg Laurie, someone who was there and lived through it and was forever changed during the Jesus Revolution...and God has used him to change countless live since then.

This book could change your life and will educate and inform you. You will not be disappointed.

Excellent Context

This book helped me to more fully understand the events of the past linked with Christianity. This is a much needed work for millennials! Thank you, Greg. Your Harvest Crusade reached me in 2000 and hearing more about your past was such an encouragement.

A story how is was and hopefully can be again.

A wonderfully well written story of how it was and hopefully can be again. This real true life story is one that I was Blessed to be apart of. Read or listen to to this with focus and wonder. This could happen again. Most likely a different way, but let's start within ourselves. Read this if you are a believer or if your not. it will touch your soul. God is Good!

Awesome story!

I loved hearing Greg tell his perspective of the Jesus movement. It filled me with fresh hope and faith that what God did in the 70's, He can do again today. Great book, I highly recommend it.

Beautiful

I’ve been listening to Pastor Greg’s sermons for several years. I’ve attended harvest riverside and the Orange County campus many times when visiting California. I’ve also had the privilege to go to a Harvest Crusade at angel stadium and then serve at the Harvest America here in Arizona. I’ve been blessed by Pastor Greg’s ministry so much. I’ve read a few books of his but they never connected with me as much as his preaching. I think it made a huge difference having Ellen Vaughn co-author this book with him. The book covers a lot of ground, some parts feel like a history book, other parts a biography and other parts feel like a book on spiritual growth and revival. I feel challenged after reading this to really examine where I’m at with my walk with Jesus. I’m inspired by the story to seek out my calling. It definitely the best book I’ve read this year. Most of all, this book has inspired me to pray more than ever for a revival, a newJesus movement. I’m 33 years old and I really enjoyed all the background information and in as much as a book could, it helped me to see what the 60s really was like. I loved this book and I highly recommended it.

I actually had a hard cover of this book but was having trouble getting the time to read so was happy to find the audiobook. The narrator is great. I finished it very quickly because I enjoyed it so much.
