We are going to be using this as a Bible study book. I have only just begun to read the first few pages and will be anxious to discuss the book with other church members. It is also being used as the "One Book" for our church so many are reading it and discussing it in detail. More later if you are interested in multiple opinions.

One of the best Christian books I've ever read. Read this book an it'll mess you up - and that's what he wants. Claiborne's perspective if fresh and thoughtful. I couldn't put the book down.

So Good, So Needed...
Shane rocks your face in this book and challenges everything you might believe in. He lives what he preaches and challenges all of you to do the same. Lovingly. Love.

A must read!
This is probably one of the best books I have ever read. Shane interweaves tales of his life in community with a convicting message about being a real Christian in this day and age. I found it uplifting, motivating and engaging. You won't want to put it down!

I found this book to be convicting and motivating. I think Shane's stories on love and community will really convict the brunt of American Christianity because it seems many have lost sight of the main goal - to love God and others. There's a lot to say, and Shane probably says it better anyways, so get it and read. =)
