In Your Wildest ... is a chronicle of the decade from 1970 to 1980 in the lives of the author, his family and hundreds of others who joined him on the journey. The upheaval of the 'Sixties gave birth to a tribe of Jesus believers (Jesus People), mostly ex-hippies, scattered from coast to coast across the United States and, eventually, around the world. "Miracle" and "amazed" are two words you'll see quite often in this account - what happens when heaven invades our space. This isn't the first chronicle of those years, but it definitely forms an interesting chapter in an ongoing story starting in first century Palestine and continuing on - the "eternal Suffix," as the author puts it.
From sharing the stage with Janis Joplin to living in tents, driving to India from Italy, to jail time in Las Vegas, swimming with sharks in the Philippines and performing for Russian sailors on the aft deck of a Russian battleship - this is one amazing read - an action adventure flavored with sci-fi and all absolutely true! Not in a person's wildest imagination could these stories be dreamed, unless, for one window in time, the God of the universe put it all together for one unlikely group of individuals in a decade-long gypsy journey. This is their story.
