Book #12 - The Irresistible Revolution

On the plane down to Jamaica I read Shane Claiborne's book, The Irresistible Revolution: Living as an Ordinary Radical. This is the first book the summer staff at Won by One to Jamaica is reading. This is not a book for Christians who are comfortable in their faith. This is a call to some radical changes in the way we live as followers of Jesus. It is very difficult to stay on the fringe after reading this book. Kelli is just finishing it and said last night as we walked that it might be the best book she has ever read. That's the biggest endorsement that could be given to a book in my opinion.
Shane has a new book out called Jesus for President. If you want to read about it, check out Pastor Mark's blog here.
