Publisher's Description

For all the Christians facing conflict between JesusÆ words and their own lives, for all the non-Christians who feel they rarely see JesusÆ commands reflected in the choices of his followers, Red Letter Revolution is a blueprint for a new kind of Christianity, one consciously centered on the words of Jesus, the BibleÆs ôred letters.ö

Framed as a captivating dialogue between Shane Claiborne, a progressive young evangelical, and Tony Campolo, a seasoned pastor and professor of sociology, Red Letter Revolution is a life-altering manifesto for skeptics and Christians alike. It is a call to a lifestyle that considers first and foremost JesusÆ explicit, liberating message of sacrificial love.

Shane and Tony candidly bring the words of Jesus to bear on contemporary issues of violence, community, Islam, hell, sexuality, civil disobedience, and twenty other critical topics for people of faith and conscience today. The resulting conversations reveal the striking truth that Christians guided unequivocally by the words of Jesus will frequently reach conclusions utterly contrary to those of mainstream evangelical Christianity.

If the Jesus who speaks to you through the Gospels is at odds with the Christian culture you know, if you have ever wanted to stand up and say, ôI love Jesus, but thatÆs not me,ö Red Letter Revolution will prove that you are not aloneùyou may have been a Red Letter Christian all along.


ôThis book, by a young and an elderly Christian, will help you decide how we Christians could change the world if we took the æred letterÆ words of Jesus literally and seriously.ö ùPresident Jimmy Carter

ôIn Red Letter Revolution the uncompromised truth of Jesus' teachings are given voice by two modern-day Christian leaders who do more than preach this Good News. They walk the talk and lead the way.ö ùArchbishop Desmond Tutu

ôI started reading this book and couldn't stop. . . . Thank you, Tony and Shane. Thank you for this book. May the movement spread around the world.ö ùAbuna Elias Chacour,?Melkite Catholic Archbishop of Galilee

ôI cannot over-emphasize or exaggerate the richness of this book.ö ùPhyllis Tickle, author of Emergence Christianity

ôIn this courageous and well crafted book, we have a return to the core message of the Gospel from two Christians who first tried to live it themselvesùand only then spoke." ùFr. Richard Rohr, O.F.M., Center for Action and Contemplation

ôShane Claiborne and Tony Campolo are two of the most significant prophetic voices in the Christian world.ö ùRabbi Michael Lerner, editor of Tikkun Magazine (

ôThis is a must-read book for anyone who is seeking to take JesusÆ call on their lives seriously.ö ùJim Wallis, founder and editor of Sojourners magazine
