Storyline

Lonnie Frisbee was a young hippie seeker fully immersed in the 1960s counter culture when he claimed to have experienced an encounter with God while on an acid trip. This event so transformed him that Lonnie became an itinerant Christian evangelist, something of a John the Baptist of Southern California who compelled thousands of fellow spiritual seekers to make a profession of faith in Jesus Christ. During the 1970s Lonnie Frisbee became widely known as California's "hippie preacher," the quintessential "Jesus freak" whose pictures frequented such magazines as Time and Life as the media told the story of a burgeoning "Jesus movement." Lonnie Frisbee provided the charismatic spark that launched the Calvary Chapel church into a worldwide ministry and propelled many fledgling leaders into some of the most powerful movers and shakers of the evangelical movement. During the 1980s Lonnie was at the center of the "signs and wonders" movement, one that focused on reviving the practice of ... Written by Anonymous

Honest, a portrayal of grace working through a wounded healer
18 January 2006 | by (Hollywood, CA) – See all my reviews

This is a great film, showing how Lonnie ministered in signs and wonders, and was a catalyst to both the Calvary Chapel and Vineyard movements. Sadly, much of the good Lonnie did was dismissed by religious people because of how Lonnie died. Kudos to David for this wonderful documentary. As one effected by Lonnie's work, I am very grateful for this film. Like my film on Aimee McPherson, David compassionately explores how an anointed person is still human, and is too often exploited and used by others for their spiritual gifts. This film effected me, spiritually and emotionally, and I hope David makes more films.
