some books shaping us ...

just wanted to remind you about a few books shaping us as a community ... you must read these books before you die, or before the end of the year ...

Shane Claiborne ... Irresistible Revolution ... living as an ordinary radical ... this revolution begins inside each of us, and through little acts of love, it will take over the world ... let us begin to be Christians again ... Jesus, give us the courage ...



N.T. Wright ... Simply Christian ... why Christianity makes sense ... N.T Wright gives the most profound and captivating picture of the God story ... moving us from Genesis to Revelation, this book will change your life ...


Rob Bell ... Velvet Elvis ... what does it really mean to follow Jesus ... if there is one book I would recommend everyone read, it's this one (and I like the Bible) ... wrestle with this book ... wrestle with God ... just read it ...

i have the irresistible revolution and velvet elvis, if anyone wants to borrow them (though i think i wrote all over irresistible revolution). i read them both while i was in tanzania... i had lots of time to ponder them, at least. ^-^

Velvet Elvis what great

Simply christian was really good

Irresistible revolution sucked.

2 out of three ain't bad.

Shane should of just told us to go read a book by Campolo. Same premise, better written
