The House of Acts

Front Cover
"A moving story of what is happening among the lonely depersonalized youth who flocked to the Haight-Ashbury district of San Francisco. There they found that heroin, LSD and other drugs provided only an escape, not an answer to their quest for meaning in life. This book tells how a group of concerned pastors who felt a responsibility toward these young people banded together, forming an organization called Evangelical Concerns Inc., in an effort to relate the authentic Christian message in a 'hippie' setting. It also tells of the tremendous work currently being done through the Communal Houses established near the great universities of the Bay area. John MacDonald gives the reader firsthand insights into the life style of many of these confused and bewildered youth who have identified with the hippie way of life."--Dust jacket flap.

I read this book after having been a product of the Jesus movement, I can say it was a great book and there's always more and from my perspective many books could be written especially about the move of the Holy Spirit in the midst of the preaching, Bible studies, home groups, music and so much more including alternative movements away from the "orthodox" or "traditional" activity associated with historical Christianity. It's still happening by that same Spirit, Romans 8.11.
