The Jesus People Movement: A Generational Interpretation
Balswick, Jack
Journal of Social Issues, 30, 3, 23-42, Sum 74
This phenomenological study of the Jesus People suggests that the movement can best be seen as the result of a youthful cohort's "fresh contact" (using Mannheim's concept) with the fundamentalist tradition in Christianity, set within the context of structural conditions in American society in the 1960's and in organized American religion, plus the distinctive life style and orientations of the broader youth counterculture movement.
