I don't want pablum that tells me I'm great or how to self-fix. I want a book that challenges my faith to become more. I don't object to having every belief I have challenged because that makes me stronger, and sometimes it makes me change. This book challenged some of my beliefs and made me evaluate them on the basis of scripture, and some of them I had to change. It also challenged me to get active in doing the work of the kingdom of Christ.
You won't be able to put it down in the first half of the book. You'll want to in the second half, but you'll keep coming back because you need to. Don't read it if you want God to leave you alone.

I think every believer NEEDS to read this book! Every time I pick up this book I am instantly motivated and inspired but the stories and insights Shane shares with his readers. This book has changed the way I look at my faith and even more so what I am going to DO with my faith.

If you're ready to roll up your sleeves, and march in God's army, pick up a copy of The Irresistible Revolution and get ready to load up on some serious ammunition. And for good measure, you'll also get a fresh compass and a friend to help you dig out of the trenches and be counted as a radical who is courageous and foolish enough to stand out as a true follower of Christ. From the streets of Calcutta, to war-zones of Iraq, to neighbourhood slums, to money-multiplying Wall Street, Shane Claiborne transports the face of Christ into a suffering and lonely world. In Irresistible Revolution, he converts his stories into a compelling case for the 'ordinary radical' . His down to earth style will engage you, much like a conversation with an old friend. But be prepared, much of what he has to say is far from comfortable. In these pages you will be dared to take up your cross, and tear down some walls. You will hear first hand of the miracle of community, of working together, being one body in Christ. You will be asked to drop the rock of unforgiveness and embrace the poor, the needy and the 'ugly'. And kiss complacency good-bye. Watch out for the gut-wrenching and heart-breaking moments laced in pain...and some joyful, triumphant ones. Watch how you never lose the distinct feeling that Jesus is right there walking through every page as you read along. You will sense his presence watching over you, holding out His hand, insisting, 'Come follow me...come and see.' Watch yourself capture a fresh and renewed understanding of who Jesus was and what He asks of you...and behold the absolute ironic beauty of a revolution 'a heart revolv-ing around Him' that is truly irresistible.

I was intrigued by Shane Claiborne's story, but truly compelled by his writing, and the things that stir his heart -- the needs of God's people -- and his desire to reach out to them in sacrifical ways thoroughly washed in the cleansing waters of a deep humility. The things Shane has to say are difficult -- difficult to take in, and penetrating to one's spirit. But oh, so important! Weep when you read this book, let it change the way you think about things. Ponder and pray about what you should do that you're not already doing. And then buy a copy for a half-dozen of your friends and give them the same challenge.

This book has helped me grow in faith in so many ways! It has made me think very differently about the world! If you are looking for inspiration, encouragment, or just want to know that other people care, than this is the book for you!

I have seen the church from the inside out (Pastor's son). My heart beats with Shane's. Christians from varieties of churches have the tendency to close themselves within the walls of the church for security and comfort. All too often it creates a disconnect in two ways. 1) we become disconnected from the needs of others and 2)We become disconnected from the call of Christ in our own lives. Surely we can change our ways. And as words can never change a world...only the actions carried forth from the words will make a difference

For a white, upper-middle class Christian living in the burbs, this is a very unsettling book. What is unquestionable, however, is that Shane loves Jesus Christ and is seeking the best way to live out the Great Commission. His quest shakes yuppie Christendom to the core. That is exactly what he desires and, I believe, what I needed to help jump start my beliefs so they translated into actions. You don't have to agree with all of Claiborne's politics to find inspiration in his calling.

I enjoyed this book, which provided an excellent look at the work of Shane Claiborne and The Simple Way. I really liked the informal, witty, direct style. If I have any criticisms, they would only concern opinions expressed by the author, with which I can agree to disagree. If you are a self-identified evangelical Christian, or are discontent with "ordinary" church, this would be a good read for you.

Don't read this if you aren't willing to take an honest look at yourself and the way you live in our world. A wonderful, radical book!

I keep buying another copy, because I give mine away before I get it finished. Two of us are sharing the current copy. Important possibilities for peace and very entertaining.
