In the mid 1960 1 s, a new and unique phenomenon began to hit the religious establishment in America. Hippies, drug addicts, and the restless youth of America began converting to Christianity in unprecedented numbers. The new Christians became known variously as Jesus freaks, Jesus people, and street Christians. The developing movement became known as the Jesus revolution or the Jesus movement.
It is the purpose of this study to trace the development of the Jesus movement on the West Coast from 1965 to 1975.
