The story of the Jesus Fellowship/Jesus Army
The updated account of the Jesus Fellowship / Jesus Army, by Simon Cooper and Mike Farrant. 384 action-packed pages of trials, tears and joy in the Jesus Army. Originally published by Kingsway.
The Jesus Army has always been controversial since its beginnings at Bugbrooke Baptist Chapel. Our first experience of charismatic renewal was back in 1969. Since then we've established an 'Acts 2' community lifestyle, spread across much of England, and taken the gospel to the streets...
This is a story of widely different individuals whom God blessed, though they didn't often deserve it; changed when they didn't always want it; and joined together -- as a people with fire in our hearts.
From the Authors' Preface
A miracle in our times ... one of the most radical experiments in recovering biblical Christianity in Britain today.
Bryn Jones, Covenant Ministries
The Jesus Fellowship, in this history of the last two decades, challenges our devotion and obedience to Christ for the next decade.
Roger Forster, Ichthus Christian Fellowship
The signs of the Kingdom are here and should not be ignored.
Nigel Wright, Renewal
A good read, an inspiring testimony, and above all, a very challenging book.
David Mitchell, Local Preachers' Magazine
We need fresh, vibrant and spiritual movements, in line with the word of God. The Jesus Army is such a movement.
