#JesusRevolution: Real & Radical Paperback – 1 Nov 2018

Paperback, 1 Nov 2018
‘Youth for Christ has always been cognisant of cultural relativity, hence its slogan Geared to the times and anchored to the Rock. This book takes a look at youth culture fifty years ago when revival broke out amongst the disaﬀected hippie generation and compares that era to the youth culture of today. There are many striking similarities. Those who have been praying for a movement of young people to rise up and boldly proclaim Jesus will be greatly encouraged.
Even though Cindy McGarvie writes from an Australian perspective, I believe her message needs to be heard globally. Her candid analysis is both scary and exciting. If you have been feeling lost in the fog of making sense of today’s youth culture, take the time to read this short book and think.’ - Dave Brereton, International Director YFC.
‘In 1 Chronicles 12:32 we read of the men of Issachar, “who understood the times and knew what Israel should do”. In this brief volume, Cindy calls upon the Western church particularly to understand the times in which we are living, and to recognise the ways in which God may well be about to move powerfully amongst the Gen Zs or iGens, as many are
calling them. Cindy succinctly outlines the revolutionary streams which were responsible for shaping the baby boomers of fifty years ago and notes how from within that grew a radical, grassroots movement of Jesus followers. She observes the striking parallels between the social, moral and spiritual malaise of fifty years ago and the current focuses which are shaping our Western society today. Just as God worked within the cultural morass of the 1960s and ’70s to call out an authentic band of Jesus followers, who were determined to press the gospel truth into their world, Cindy suggests that once again, God is raising up a new generation of revolutionaries who are determined Christ followers, and she urges us to recognise what God is doing and to get on board.’ - Dr Peter Francis, Malyon College Principal, QLD.
‘As we move deeper into the 21st century, rapid cultural change has paved the way for what seems to be the inevitable ascendancy of secular values, opinions and power. Meanwhile, the church—confused and feeling increasingly irrelevant—ponders a future where Christianity is relegated to the status of nostalgic, shrinking, spiritual enclave. But this is not the first time we’ve been here. Cindy McGarvie’s Jesus People Revolution reflects back upon a relatively recent period—the 1960s—where things looked equally perilous for the church. Amid that time of profound cultural crisis, a surprising wave of spiritual revitalization emerged in the form of the Jesus people movement, a youth revival that started in the ranks of the radically alienated counterculture. McGarvie looks back to the hippie Christians and turned-on-to-Jesus church youth of that era for inspiration —not as a copycat template or yet another faddish marketing strategy—but as an example of the opportunity for timely spiritual awakening in a period of tumultuous change. With a look at the parallels between the 1960s and our present time, McGarvie oﬀers a serious Christian reflection on the historical moment and our need to follow God into the cultural fray.’ - Larry Eskridge, Author, God’s Forever Family: The Jesus People Movement in America.
