Jesus Revolution

This novel reflects on the Jesus Movement of the late 60s and early 70s, a time where thousands of self-proclaimed hippies came to Christianity. Greg Laurie and Ellen Vaughn, the books’ authors, mix personal stories against the vibrant background of all the 1960s and 70s had to offer American culture, drawing lines between then and our current state of spirituality in America – offering new hope to the next generation of believers. While the novel came out in 2018, the story has risen to popularity with the movie version hitting theaters earlier this year. Readers who remember the Jesus Movement are sure to revisit an inspiring time integral to their faith and lives, while younger generations will feel the hope that God is not yet done with them.

Ibach includes a reading plan along with devotionals that give readers the chance to reflect on the passages they’ve read. This book takes away the pressure that can come with deciding to read the Bible all the way through; readers are able to focus on the messages themselves and work towards strengthening their faith. Ibach’s hope the readers of her book? That by the end, they trust God and His word more deeply.
