Book review on Lonnie Frisbee

Just managed to finish the 3rd book on Lonnie Frisbee “Not by might nor by power.” So will do a quick book review.

Very powerful and sobering. Lonnie was the leader of the revival in America with the hippies in the 1970s and had a huge impact on the Vineyard and other nations especially South Africa. God raise him up for that generation. Very sobering because it is so raw and honest. He was a very, very broken person (hippie) with a horribly abusive childhood but God still used him and its really about God’s grace and how God uses broken and weak people that we would never choose. Very similar to how God picked the 12 disciples who didn’t have it all together. The key was his obedience. He did whatever God told him to do. He brought Gods raw power and presence to a broken and lost generation even in his own brokenness. Much of the church did not know how to handle him because of all his brokenness. He spent all his short life working through the brokenness with Gods power on Him in an extraordinary way Reminds me a bit of Samson.
