NCLA Review - “I’m asking God to use this book to show those of the Jesus Movement generation how to finish what we started. But more than that, I’m begging Him to call Christians of every generation to the radical commitment that fuels revival,” states Underwood in explaining his purpose in writing this book. The author takes the reader back to the ’60s and ’70s and explains how the Jesus Movement started, what fueled it, and why it fizzled out. He encourages those who were part of that revival to rekindle their enthusiasm and be part of a rebirth of those ideas. This book is interesting as a history of that time, and the reader may agree that a revival of the modern church is imperative, but disagree about how that revival will come to today’s Christians.

A long-time pastor ponders why the Jesus Movement stopped moving ... and challenges all generations of believers to the radical commitment that fuels revival. Long before becoming a pastor, Ed Underwood was a "Jesus Freak"-a young man transformed by the Jesus Movement in the 60s and 70s. He and his friends threw their hearts into a revival they thought would change the world. But somehow, the Jesus movement stopped moving. How did these radically committed young people morph into today's tame, suburban evangelicals? That's the question that sparked this passionate, provocative book, which aims at nothing less than fanning the flames of enduring revival today. Underwood draws on his personal revival experience and his study of the New Testament to expose six seductive lies that can easily sidetrack a movement and affirms five life-changing truths that can keep it going.… (more)
