Lost Boy: The Next Chapter
There are a lot of spiritual memoirs out there, but you've never seen one like this.
Like many who came of age in the 1960s, Greg Laurie was on a search for the meaning of life. Born out of wedlock to the beautiful Charlene McDaniel, an alcoholic who went on to marry seven times, Greg started drinking, partying, and taking drugs to escape the insecurity and dysfunction of his family. But his life was suddenly changed when he encountered a group of young Christians on his high school campus in Newport Beach, California.
Greg went on to start what became one of the first mega-churches in the United States as well as a far-reaching ministry that today touches many who are searching for meaning, just as he once was. In 1990, Laurie began holding public evangelistic events called Harvest Crusades. Since then, over four million people have attended Harvest Crusades across the United States, Canada, New Zealand, and Australia. Today, he is senior pastor of Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside, California—a congregation that is one of the eight largest churches in America. He is also the author of more than 35 books, including the Gold Medallion Award-winner The Upside-Down Church and Lies We Tell Ourselves.
Lost Boy: The Next Chapter is really a story about being found. Greg opens a window on his life and shares about his uncertainty and disappointments, his healing and growth. He remembers the beginnings of a ministry that has touched millions of people and relives the ups, downs, sudden drops, and blind corners—and he invites you along for the ride!
