Review:

WHAT GOD HATH WROUGHT is an outstanding documentary about the “The Jesus Movement” of the 1970s and Chuck Smith, the pastor of Calvary Chapel. Any person interested in revival should see this video that thoroughly explains how God began a revival that’s still impacting the world today. The many fascinating interviews deal as much with how to please God as with the story of the revival.



Chuck Smith was raised studying the Bible and was dedicated to God by his mother. His preaching career began like many young pastors. He led several churches with some success and some failure, as measured by church growth. Chuck says God had a plan for his life and that included showing him that, without God, he could do nothing.



The Jesus Movement began with Chuck’s wife not wanting to move where God desired, and Chuck not wanting much to do with “dirty hippies.” God changed both of their hearts. Chuck wound up welcoming hippies and his message of humility and obedience captured their hearts. Soon, Chuck had a number of hip musicians creating the first contemporary Christian music. Out of this came Maranatha Records.



Calvary Chapel’s style of ministry welcomed people regardless of their dress or appearance. This was not common at the time. Calvary Chapel wound up creating churches across the country and around the world to serve those who wanted sound biblical teaching and a more welcoming church.



For those who lived through the 70s, this is a fascinating look at a part of their lives. For those younger, this documentary explains the origins of many of America’s largest churches. Debate still rages over the change in Christian music and ministry style, but there is no debate that the Jesus Movement has brought many people to Christ and impacted the whole world.



This outstanding documentary gives tremendous insight on the history and philosophy of the Jesus Movement. This movement not only affected nondenominational churches, it also had a great impact on denominational churches, from many Baptist and Presbyterian churches to Pentecostal churches. The title WHAT GOD HATH WROUGHT aptly expresses the heart of the story, namely that this movement is a work of God more than the work of any single man or woman.
