JESUS Revolution

I've finished reading this book by Greg Laurie and Ellen Vaughn. I am planning to see the movie in February. It's about a Christian revival that happened in southern California popular among hippies who had lost hope and found it in JESUS. Here's a couple paragraphs near the end of the book I like.

"Greg asked Chuck to share counsel for hard times. 'Don't give up.' the veteran pastor told the crowd. 'Never trade what you do know for what you don't know because [when tragedies strike] the question is always, 'Why?' That question will haunt you and make you crazy.... I don't know why. But what I do know is that God is good and God loves me and God is working on His perfect plan in my life. So, I'm just content with that.'"

"The Jesus Movement awakened many, many dead souls. Most of them had at least one thing in common: they were desperate. They'd sought peace, love, and community in the utopian visions of the day. They'd thought that drugs would bring spiritual enlightenment, or that sex would bring love, or that music would bring community, or that all those things would bring freedom. They had been disappointed by the counterfeits and were hungry for what was real. It was no casual thing when they discovered in Jesus the reality they'd been looking for."
