Publisher's Summary

Best-selling authors Shane Claiborne and Tony Campolo talk candidly about the life and teaching of Jesus and the wisdom he offers our fractured world. It is time to re-imagine the world and the way we live - the old patterns of politics, economics, and religion that aren’t working. It’s time for a new kind of Christianity. In Red Letter Revolution, best-selling authors Shane Claiborne and Tony Campolo take on the hardest issues facing our world. They show that Jesus’ example is relevant and revolutionary and call us back to a Christianity that looks like him again. In this ambitious project, they mine the words of Jesus - the “red letters” of Scripture - asking the simple question, “What if we lived out the stuff he said?”
From the power in Washington to the poverty in rural towns to the broken systems everywhere else, the world is looking for salvation. But this salvation is not just for peoples' souls - it’s for schools, governments, churches, and families.
Red Letter Revolution is about politics, but it’s fresh. It’s about theology, but it’s real. It’s about economics, but it’s interesting. It’s about Jesus, who longs to transform the world despite the embarrassing things his followers have done in his name. For conservatives and progressives, skeptics and believers, Red Letter Revolution undertakes the world-shaping mission to understand how Jesus’ words could change everything - if we’d only give them a chance.

Spot on.....but

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, with caution about their practice of eisegesis.


What other book might you compare Red Letter Revolution to and why?

It is quite unique although it follows much of what the emerging church espouses.


Have you listened to any of Stu Gray and Chip Arnold ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

no.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

no.


Any additional comments?

Claiborne and Campolo work well together. I personally believe their views of the church today and their response is where Christianity needs to move. With that said, it drove me nuts listening to them quote book, chapter and verse almost every minute to prove their point. The very thing they criticize of other Christians, they do themselves. Had they presented their ideas (based upon their understanding of the Scriptures) without the eisegesis, it might have made them more credible biblical scholars. So, if you can get past this, their ideas and practices are, in my opinion, spot-on for the Church today.
