Raised by Wolves: The Story of Christian Rock & Roll
As the counter-cultural movements of the sixties gathered steam, one of its first splinter groups was the Jesus freaks. In addition to culturally hip pastors, the scene produced a handful of musicians who brazenly coupled rock and roll music with lyrics that reflected a Christian world-view and often became an outright evangelistic tool. Jesus music was born. Raised By Wolves is about this music. It traces the birth and growth of a genre that has married seeming opposites, Jesus and rock and roll, for 30 years. John J. Thompson looks at the social conditions in which this music developed and how it has been evolving in North America since the Jesus Movement of the sixties, including a look at contemporary Christian rock. He also looks at the artists behind this music, including groups like DC Talk, The Supertones and crossover artists such as Jars of Clay, MxPx and Sixpense None the Richer. These are the real rebels of rock and roll who live on the fringes in an underground Christian culture. These artists have quietly crafted some of the most compelling music around, often with no hope of major widespread popularity. Yet this underground may be positioned to explode in the near future. One group, Sixpence None The Richer, recently scored two international hits: Kiss Me and There She Goes. The band's self-titled album has also stormed the charts after seven years underground. Which one of the thousands of bands will be next?
