He was ndeed just a regular guy, trying to work out life in connection with his faith, but he demonstrated an extraordinary passion for truth, love and relationship with God that is as exciting as it is convicting! This new edition is nicely put together.

I was oncerned about this because thi book features new endorsement by Mike Bickle of the Kansas City prophetic movement; which embraces some concerning doctrines and bizarre beliefs ( including a view of ministry that is quite contrary to the worldvie that Keith demonstrated in his own life).

It actuall led me to be more autious in the review of th edition ( and, as I aid before, I am still reviewing it and, so far, it eems to be untainted) .Despite my arguably minor concerns I am so happy to see the great book still in print and I pray it remains so for years to come.

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 anaged to evad the Christian dogmatism of church indoctrination, and learned the Word of God by* gasp* reading it for himself.

Most amazing is this story is written by Melody after Keith 's tragic and early death.

Other than the Bible ( of course), this is one of he most life-changing books I have ever read ...

he simple yet unbelievably profound explanation for Keith Green is that he hoped to be like Christ.
