As the countercultural movements of the 60s 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 & 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 & roll-for 30 years. Explored are the social conditions in which this music developed and how it has been evolving in North America since the Jesus Movement of the 60s, including a look at contemporary Christian rock. Also discussed are the artists behind this music, including groups like dc Talk, The Supertones, and crossover artists such as Jars of Clay, MxPx, and Sixpence None the Richer.
