    Shane Claiborne describes an authentic faith rooted in belief, action, and love, inviting us into a movement of the Spirit that begins inside each of us. He lives among the homeless, helps local kids with homework, and tries to resurrect the forgotten places of our world. Shane's message will comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable, but will also invite us into an irresistible revolution. His is a vision for ordinary radicals ready to change the world with little acts of love.

    Overall

    From the standpoint of a politically conservative Christian, I fell in love with the radically liberal spirit of Claiborne. I agree with only about 70% of what he says, and greatly disagree with his political views. My major criticism with the book is that it focuses on advocating for political change in our country, where I believe we should focus on church change. Outside of that criticism, Shane has inpired me to make radical changes in my life, and I highly recommend the book. I have a greater understanding of what the phrase, "blessed are the poor in spirit" actually means. Shane gives an example of what it means in a very practical sense, to give up everything and follow Jesus, and how wonderful and irresistible this can be. In recomending this book to friends, I warn them that after reading this, they might just get rid of everything they own and run off to Calcutta. So, be warned. It is irresistible.
