The Irrestible Revolution

Shane Claiborne’s The Irresistible Revolution

I meant to include a reference to Shane Claiborne‘s book The Irresistible Revolution on the last post about the church getting involved in changing the world, not just changing themselves.  Following the path begun by people like Jim Wallis (who wrote the forward) he is setting out a great challenge for the church today.  I don’t think what Shane is doing can be normative, but it also cannot be ignored.  We read this as a staff last winter and it continues to mold our thinking and hopefully our development as a church.

The UpperRoom has had Shane visit and has used this book as group study material.  Sounds like a good idea to me.

  1. This book is so inacredibly real, so gritty, so, what God is about – I highly recommend it to everyone.
