Jesus Revolution ||Book REVIEW||

7:17 AM

Hola readers!



In the 1960s and 1970s God used the misfits and the people you'd least expect to bring change to America in BIG ways through what is remembered as the Jesus Movement. Young adults were changed radically through revival, and Greg Laurie witnessed the Jesus Movement first hand. 
Through the book Jesus Revolution, they tell the story of how his own life was changed, how the movement began, and how we can see revival today, right now...because we're not so different from the people then. 

My grandparents lived in the time of the Jesus Movement. While they may not have experienced it first hand, my grandfather was saved in a revival in the early 70s.
I've always found huge interest in the time of the hippies, in the 60s, 70s, cultural...and what brought along the Jesus Movement. Movies like Woodlawn blew me away and since I was a young teenager, the word revival has been planted firmly in my mind. I want nothing more now at twenty years old to see revival with my generation.
Reading Jesus Movement was a breath of fresh air.
Greg Laurie and Ellen Vaughn share how revival was made possible, how we young adults now are no different than those of during the Jesus Movement. I've wanted for a long time to talk to someone who was in the time of hippies, who saw the big revival first hand, and reading this book was like getting just that.
I highly recommend this book to anyone -- especially those who, like me, don't know a lot about the Jesus Movement. Even if you're not interested in that time, I think we can all agree with hunger for revival, for excitement, for contentment, for the burned-out feeling in church to leave.
Read this book.
It's good.
Really good.
