The Red Letter Revolution By: Tony Campolo and Shane Claiborne

The Red Letter Revolution: What if Jesus Really meant what He said? Through this book Tony Campolo and Shane Claiborne strike up a conversation about what Christianity would look like if we followed the words of Jesus rather than rooting ourselves in the ‘traditions’ of the church. This book is not a regular book it is a dialogue between the two authors, a transcript of the conversations that they have had on a range of topics from money, politics, missions, immigration, to giving.

This book brings up a lot of discussion and gives you something to consider and to think about, although you may not agree with the views of either author the discussion is informative and helps us to realize that sometimes we base things on what we do by tradition and forget to look into what the Bible says. The Red Letter Revolution also introduces us into a new way of living in community with one another and taking steps to really read what Jesus said.

This book has  received a range of reviews from extremely positive to extremely negative, it is understandable that this book may make you angry and you may disagree with some points made throughout the book, I encourage you to approach this book with an open mind and to listen to what is being said and you may just find some points to take to heart.


I received this book complimentary from Thomas Nelson through the Booksneeze program in exchange for an honest review, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
