The Irresistible Revolution: Living As an Ordinary Radical
by Shane Claiborne, a review from Powells.com by Chris Faatz.
"Claiborne is the real thing, the guy who not only talks Jesus' talk, but walks Jesus' walk. He lives in intentional community and voluntary poverty, owning all goods in common, in the inner city of Philadelphia (not generally the place where you'll find a skinny white boy from a nice, middle class Methodist family from Tennessee). He has traveled to Calcutta to work with Mother Teresa's Sisters of Charity and been to Iraq while the bombs were dropping. When Jesus said to the rich young man, sell all and follow me, Shane listened ? and obeyed. His whole being is infused with the glorious madness of the Gospel, and he fairly glows with the absolute nature of his commitment. And, now he's written a book." Read the entire Powells.com review.
