Read in January, 1992

This is the story of authentic Christianity--one that few see, and fewer live. Keith Green began his spiritual quest as a '60's hippie musician and searched out drugs, free love, perfectionist musical performance, and eastern mysticism before encountering the Living God. He managed to escape the Christian dogmatism of church indoctrination, and learned the Word of God by *gasp* reading it for himself. He and his wife Melody, co-author of the book, lived the sort of life that took Jesus literally, as in giving away your shirt and your cloke also, and feeding the poor and housing the homeless--in their own homes.
Keith was a prophet, calling a back-slidden and lukewarm church to repentance. He did nothing half-way and his lyrics and music resonate with the unusual passion of this man. This is the story of his life, told by the one who walked step by step of it with him until his last tragic plane flight.
For anyone who ever wondered what true Christianity looks like, this is a must-read.
