The Irresistible Revolution by Shane Claiborne

I finished up IRRESISTIBLE REVOLUTION, by Shane Claiborne of THE SIMPLE WAY, last week. Such a prophetic writing for the Western Church. I didn't necessarily agree with every single jot and tiddle, but the overall message spoke straight to my heart.

My husband is now reading it and he's the one who describes Shane as a modern day prophet. God often calls individuals to extreme lives with extreme messages because that's what it sometimes takes to get our attention. After all, look at the Isaiah who went publically naked for a while or Hosea who was called to marry a prostitute. Obviously, the WHOLE population wasn't called to shed their threads or marry someone who was of ill repute, but the prophets had crucial messages from God and messages that all the people needed to hear.

Read IRRESISTIBLE REVOLUTION and prepare to have your world shaken up!
