You really ought to buy this book and read it soon. The author, Shane Claiborne, is one of the founders of The Simple Way in inner city Philadelphia, and his passion for the kingdom of God is evident in every story he relates throughout the book.

There's a growing discontent in evangelical circles, a feeling from youth that we've not been handed the same thing Jesus had in mind as he lived and taught and bled and died. The Irresistible Revolution is an account showing that there are people who are following Jesus in new and amazing ways - and catching glimpses of God's glory along the way.
