    Irresistible Book

    The Irresistible Revolution is Shane Claiborne experience loving God and loving people. Shane Claiborne has traveled the world, been part of many major churches and argued with unjust laws. One of Shane Claiborne's major turning points was when he traveled to Calcutta to be with Mother Teresa and learn from her. Shane has also traveled to Iraq during the war to love the Iraqis and to search for peace. Shane lives a radical life searching to love one another where ever he goes.
    Shane Claiborne has been forming a strong community where he lives and encourages everyone to be in community. He pushes that it is how the world needs to live. He also shares that we everyone is human and we can love one another. One joke he shares is that his friends put a card board life size cut of George W. Bush in Shane's bedroom to scare him and Shane ended up leaving George Bush to remind him every mourning that he is human and that we can love the president even though he was supporting the war (of course this is when George Bush was president).
    The Irresistible Revolution helps put your into a bigger perspective and makes you more grateful. This book can motivate you waking up and trying to have a smile on your face and wanting to share that smile with someone else. But everyone in this whole world disagrees with everyone. A lot of the Shane's ideas are his opinions you may disagree with him. Such as he states the wealthy people are the loneliest people or his views are pro choice (I am as well) and disagrees with Republicans.
    The Irresistible Revolution is for everyone, not just Christians. Shane shares his philosophy on how to love. Anyone with an open mind can learn a lot of knowledge from him. The style of writing he uses is very casual as if he is having a conversation with you. There are footnotes on the bottom of the page to references he makes. From chapter to chapter he occasionally will crack a joke. The Irresistible Revolution is a nice read and questions your lifestyle.
