    While I believe the authors of this book meant well they did not write a manifesto on what it means to be a Red Letter Christian What they wrote was a haphazard hot potato discussion of topics, dialogue on homosexuality dialogue on politics dialogue on the Middle East etc And while one might expect the authors to discuss how Christ addressed all of these difficult topics in the red letters of the new testament, they did not What they did was have a very interesting discussion about t While I believe the authors of this book meant well they did not write a manifesto on what it means to be a Red Letter Christian What they wrote was a haphazard ...

    Red Letter Revolution What If Jesus Really Meant What He Said by Shane Claiborne and Tony Campolo is written as a dialogue between the two authors They introduce it as a new movement of believers who attempt to take seriously the words of Christ and commit to living them out in daily life Overall, they tackle twenty six different topics, including hell, Islam, family, racism, homosexuality, immigration, politics, war, national debt, and missions, divided into three separate sections.Ther Red Letter Revolution What If Jesus Really Meant What He Said by Shane Claiborne and Tony Campolo is written as a dialogue between the two authors They introduce it as a new movement of believers who attempt to take seriously the words of Christ and commit to living them out in daily life Overall, they tackle twenty six different topics, including hell, Islam, family, racism, homosexuality, immigration, politics, war, national debt, and missions, divided into three separate sections.There are some good points in the book Both authors call the church out on handling finances do we have a balance between what we use for ourselves and what we give away to take care of those in need both within and without our church Both authors cal...

    For those interested in scriptural study the idea of red letters is a fairly common concept In fact since 1899 Bibles have been published with the words of Jesus highlighted in red In this new book by Shane Claiborne the concept is taken a step further The question is asked What if Jesus really meant all that he said To put it bluntly, this book was a game changer for me It was a real challenge to some of the things I thought I believed regarding many issues o...

    If you ve already read or heard Claiborne or Campolo, you ll know what to expect from this book Most of the topics weren t new to me, however it was still rewarding to read about these Red Letter Christian themes and ideas, such as Community, Giving, Israel Palestine, Violence, etc compiled together into one book and structured as ongoing discussions and organized by topic.Each chapter takes on some theme important to Red Letter Christianity It is divided into three parts Red Letter Theology If you ve already read or heard Claiborne or Campolo, you ll know what to ...

    There are times where reading the dialogue between friends creates an enjoyable reading experience, where the familiarity of the conversation partners creates an intimate mood Then there are occasions like reading this book, where a chummy atmosphere between readers is the last thing one wants where one disagrees strenuously with the point of view of the authors in question This is the sort of book where the problematic ideas on hand would have done bett...

    This is not really a book, as much as it is a transcript of an extended discussion The authors Claiborne and Campolo reflect on what Christianity might look like, if those who claim to follow Jesus would stop actually following religious or cultural tradition Instead they discuss what it would look like if the red letters of the bible were followed In most modern bibles, the red colored letters are the words spoken by Jesus Thus, the Red Letter Revolution is the revolution that would take This is not really a book, as much as it is a transcript of an extended discussion The authors Claiborne and Campolo reflect on what Christianity might look like, if those who claim to follow Jesus would stop actually following religious or cultural tradition Instead they discuss what it would look like if the red letters of the bible were followed In most modern bibles, the red colored letters are the words spoken by Jesus Thus, the Red Letter Revolution is the revolution that would take place if people who call themselves Christians would first and foremost follow the teachings in the red letter sections of the bible The authors ...

    Written as a literary dialog between two practitioners of the Red Letter Christian movement, this book is a treatise on what Jesus taught and what it should look like in 21st century America and among Christians everywhere I may not always agree with everything that they say, but will admit to being challenged in my thinking I am personal ly acquainted with one of the authors, Tony Camoplo, and my wife actually took a sociology course with him at Eastern University when she was a student there Written as a literary dialog between two practitioners of the Red Letter Christian movement, this book is a treatise on what Jesus taught and what it should look like in 21st century America and among Christians everywhere I may not always agree wit...

    This book is challenging It challenges Christians to confront whether we go to church belong to a church or follow Christ through his actual words in the gospels and the answer for me and many is likely to be that we aren t following his words or him.I appreciate the topic generally and I find both authors to be articulate and well grounded I like to format of a dialogue Although it s less frequently point and counter point, it gives two people with similar but distinct views the op This book is challenging It challenges Christians to confront whether we go to church belong to a church or follow Christ through his actual words in the gospels and the answer for me and many is likely to be that we aren t following his words or him.I appreciate the topic generally and I find both authors to b...

    This book is amazing Few Christians out there stand out to me as much as Shane Claiborne does I think this is because Shane not only calls for Christian life to be radical, but shows in his own life just how radical it can be He practices what he preaches and gives us all a good look at what Jesus looked like when He walked the earth Between him and Tony Campolo, so many hot button issues are touched on that this book re...

    If Christianity is about following Jesus Christ, then this book presents many important challenges to what is accepted as Christianity in the conservative parts of the USA It was a breath of fresh air for me.
