We truly enjoyed reading this book. As former members of CITA we was reminded of God's goodness as we traveled across the US ministering one on one. What a foundation for what God called us to do later in life. Thanks, Joe, for sharing!

In Your Wildest... recounts the events of author Joe Grier from his beginnings playing in a rock band to his introduction to the beginnings of the Jesus People movement. He joins up with the traveling Jesus People movement, which takes him from the midwestern United States to the west coast, and eventually throughout Europe, India, and the Philippines. Along the way are incredible accounts of how the Jesus People introduced the Gospel to many towns in Europe and India.

The book gives fascinating insight into the culture of the 1970s and the impact and growth of the Jesus People. Grier does a great job of bringing the reader along with him and his many adventures. His writing is accessible, bringing the reader into his experiences of sharing the Gospel with people from all walks of life. Grier's heart also comes through in his writing, as it is evident that his journeys originates from his own true encounter with God, and not simply from an opportunity to travel the world. His accounts of the obstacles he faced and the necessity to live by faith gives evidence to this.

The book is engaging and the reader will quickly find him or herself anticipating what the next chapter will bring, making it an enjoyable read.

Joe Grier took the time to craft a well written story free of errors that often plague self-published books. The story is captivating, honest about the hardships endured, yet tempered by God’s grace and miracles. In Your Wildest proved to be a nostalgic read for me and will be for anyone swept into Christianity by the Jesus Movement of the 60’s and 70’s. I contemplated running away from home to live among the Jesus People. After reading In Your Wildest, I wish I had.
