Living as an Ordinary Radical Many of us find ourselves caught somewhere between unbelieving activists and inactive believers. We can write a check to feed starving children or hold signs in the streets and feel like we've made a difference without ever encountering the faces of the suffering masses.

Living as an Ordinary Radical Many of us find ourselves caught somewhere between unbelieving activists and inactive believers. We can write a check to feed starving children or hold signs in the streets and feel like we've made a difference without ever encountering the faces of the suffering masses. In this book, 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 and extends into a broken world. Shane's faith led him to dress the wounds of lepers with Mother Teresa, visit families in Iraq amidst bombings, and dump $10,000 in coins and bills on Wall Street to redistribute wealth. Shane lives out this revolution each day in his local neighborhood, an impoverished community in North Philadelphia, by living among the homeless, helping local kids with homework, and "practicing resurrection" in 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.

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. =)
