The Irresistible Revolution

The Irresistible Revolution: living as an ordinary radical, by Shane Claiborne. A great example of missional incarnation, kingdom living, the new monasticism.
Check it out herehttp://www.thesimpleway.org/index2.html and at http://www.amazon.com/Irresistible-Revolution-Living-Ordinary-Radical/dp/0310266300 and at here http://www.zondervan.com/Cultures/en-US/Product/ProductDetail.htm?ProdID=com.zondervan.9780310266303&QueryStringSite=Zondervan.

Dorothy Day re-incarnated. From his travels to Iraq with Christian Peacemakers, to working with Mother Teresa, to his spiritual journey (so far in his still young life), to living with the homeless, to protests on Wall Street. Here are some of the chapter titles after a foreword by Jim Wallis. When Christianity was Still Safe. Resurrecting Church. In Search of a Christian. When Comfort becomes Uncomfortable. Another way of doing life. Economics of Rebirth. Pledging Allegiance When Kingdoms Collide. Jesus Made Me Do it. Jesus is for Losers. Extremists for Love. Making Revolution Irresistible. Growing Smaller and Smaller Until We Take Over the World. Crazy but not Alone. Local Revolutions and ordinary radicals. Marks of a New Monasticism.

We will be reading and discussing it at The Living Room Church here in "a third place" this fall. I will try to post some of my favorite excerpts soon.

Hi Ron - FYI, Krista Tippett interviewed Shane Claiborne on her radio show, "Speaking of Faith," a little while ago. Here's a link to the archive for that show: The New Monastics. One can also find a downloadable podcast at the website. Good stuff!

Thanks. Glad to see he is getting out beyond the evangelical press; also The Wittenberg Door did a good piece on him along with a special missions type issue; always funny stuff there. You can read that interview here http://www.wittenburgdoor.com/archives/claiborne.html
