God David Berg Son of Rev. Virginia Lee Brandt - very well known as a superlative preacher Berg himself tried to make a place for himself as an independent preacher, but failed to really get a following until much later in life The message of the Children of God resonated with the anti-establishment vibes of the 1960's An unconventional group from its very beginnings, as its zealous hippie members issued a call for spiritual revolution and a return to the faith and lifestyle of the early Christians, picketed and decried the evils of war and injustice Members of the Children of God founded communes in various cities and they would proselytize in the streets and distribute pamphlets that shared their message - 42 million pamphlets distributed by 1972!
