In 1969, in Capitol Records' Hollywood studio, Larry Norman decided that he wanted to sing about the most countercultural subject of all: Jesus. To a generation of Christians who wanted a way to be different in the American cultural scene he was a godsend. To the religious establishment, however, he was a thorn in the side; and to secular music fans, he was an enigma, constantly offering up Jesus to problems they didn't think were problems. Thornbury examines the conflicts that defined the singer's life, as he crisscrossed the developing fault lines between Evangelicals and mainstream American culture-friction that continues to this day.
