By Greg Laurie
Greg Laurie had everything going against him in life. Born out of wedlock, Greg spent his childhood living with his aunts and grandparents and spent two stints in military school when not living with his seven-time-divorced alcoholic mother. Searching for meaning and purpose in his life, Greg immersed himself in partying and later drug experimentation all which only added to his meaningless existence. At the age of 17, unexpectedly, Greg Laurie became a Christian. In his autobiography "Lost Boy," Greg Laurie speaks candidly about his struggles and challenges and about how his life was radically transformed. He is now dedicated to reaching others like himself, who are searching for meaning and purpose in life. In the early 70s Greg started what is today one of the largest churches in America: Harvest Christian Fellowship. He travels the world, having to spoken to over 4 million people in his large-scale events, Harvest Crusades. Greg Laurie's legacy has been seasoned with trials and questions, but if God can take a confused, lost boy from a severely dysfunctional family and raise him to be one of the nation's leading evangelists and pastors, what can God do with you?

Get ready to leave spiritual mediocrity behind as you discover the Christian life as it was meant to be lived.
