    If you like challenging books

    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.<BR/>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.

    Life Changing!

    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.

    When your hands and feet revolve around the heart of Christianity it's an Irresistible Revolution

    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.

    A much-needed corrective for our mega-church culture

    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.

    Surely We Can Change

    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

    A real challenge

    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.

    A radical defines himself

    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.

    Amazing book. Don't read it unle Get ready to change!

    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!

    The Irresistible Revolution

    This book is absolutely incredible, and gives a clear picture of how FOLLOWERS OF CHRIST were called to live their lives. Not just as CHRISTIANS but as true FOLLOWERS OF THE WAY.

    Too good not to share

    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.

    Flipped my world upside down

    This book changed the way I think about Christianity and what it means to truly follow Jesus. A must read for all. Shane writes about his life and how God calls us to love people directly and love God. Simple but practically really hard. It's more risk because it flips the perspective of this world and culture upside down, exactly what Jesus and the early church were doing. Getting back to the basics of Christianity and being a community with the poor. Not indirectly giving or meeting a need (which i'm not saying is bad) but seeing faces and building relationships with those that you are meeting the need. Inspiring to join this Irresistible Revolution Shane and several others are apart of. Amazing book. Game Changer in my life.

    Simply Irresistible

    Having grown up within The Church of the Brethren and thinking of the newest taglines for COB "Peacefully, Simply, Together." and "Another way of living". This book really defines for me what both of these taglines are all about.

    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.

    A live changing, life challenging journey

    Shane Claiborne shares his journey from his Evangelical Protestant upbringing through Christian college awaking and activism, India with Mother Theresa, Iraq with Christian Peacemakers and many experiences with Christian home churches and small communities. I was confronted with the real meaning of Jesus and Christianity in a world with so many divergent Christian views.
    I wish I had read this when I was in college in the early 70s. It would have radically changed the direction of my life toward authentic Christian living. Alas, it was not written until 2006!
    A "must read" for young people seeking direction for their spiritual lives.

    I Also Recommend:

    Eye opening!

    It seems like most American Christians have forgotten what it really means to live out the Christian life. Many are stuck letting politics define their Christianity, and this book helps one to realize we need to break out of that box. Not that we have to follow in Shane's (the author's) footsteps exactly, but the book inspires to reach out of our comfortable world to do what Jesus really said.

    Shane Claiborne is a genius!

    This book honestly changed my life. I am a Christian and have been for about 5 years. This book got me realigned with Jesus Christ and the God of the bible, not the one that america sells. I have a completely refreshed understanding. I would suggest this book to anyone, but especially Christians. If you like a watered down gospel, this is not the book for you. Shane dares to align himself with exactly what the bible tells us to do. It sounds simple, but it is truly amazing! God bless Shane Claiborne!

    I really did enjoy this book.

    What I enjoyed most about this book is the author sharing his experience of the time he spend working with mother Teresa, his depth of thought when he pondered whether he lived a truly Christian life, and his ability to realize how he could be a better Christian.

    What I liked least about the book is it seemed to drone on and on now and then when, in my opinion, the point had already been made. The book was recommended to me by a friend and I am glad I read it.

    Mindboggling and thought provoking

    Posted March 3, 2009, 9:01 p.m. A great read for those who are wrestling with "church going" and true Christianity. Although I did not agree with everything Claiborne had to say (I think he would be pleased with that), he did validate the questions I have regarding organized religion. If you're looking for answers to all your questions, this is probably not a book that will resonate with you, because it leaves the reader with more questions than answers. It is a book I would recommend to people of all faiths and people with little or no faith. It's an easy read full of provacative thoughts on issues of relevance for the "bored" Christian in today's society.
