Larry Eskridge's Account of the Jesus People

As part of my summer reading, I am making my way through Larry Eskridge's God's Forever Family: The Jesus People Movement in America.

Eskridge, a staff member at Wheaton College's Institute for the Study of American Evangelicals, was a PhD student under David Bebbington at the University of Stirling. Eskridge's book is a revised version of his dissertation, which took approximately a decade to complete.

I see that there is a review of Eskridge's book in Christianity Today by John Turner, who calls the book, "a rich, tender history of one of the more surprising developments of the late 1960s." Take a look at the rest of the review here.
