Becoming the answer to our prayers : prayer for ordinary radicals by Shane Claiborne( Book )

6 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 361 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Activists Shane Claiborne and Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove show how prayer and action must go together. Their exposition of key biblical passages provides concrete examples of how a life of prayer fuels social engagement and a life of justice. Phrases like "give us this day our daily bread" and "forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors" take on new meaning when applied to feeding the hungry or advocating for international debt relief." "If we hope to see God change society, we must be ordinary radicals who pray - and then are ready to become the answers to our own prayers."--BOOK JACKET

Executing grace : how the death penalty killed Jesus and why it's killing us by Shane Claiborne( Book )

6 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this reasoned exploration of justice, retribution, and redemption, the champion of the new monastic movement, popular speaker, and author of the bestselling The Irresistible Revolution offers a powerful and persuasive appeal for the abolition of the death penalty. The Bible says an eye for an eye. But is the state's taking of a life true--or even practical--punishment for convicted prisoners? In this thought-provoking work, Shane Claiborne explores the issue of the death penalty and the contrast between punitive justice and restorative justice, questioning our notions of fairness, revenge, and absolution. Using an historical lens to frame his argument, Claiborne draws on testimonials and examples from Scripture to show how the death penalty is not the ideal of justice that many believe. Not only is a life lost, so too, is the possibility of mercy and grace. In Executing Grace, he reminds us of the divine power of forgiveness, and evokes the fundamental truth of the Gospel--that no one, even a criminal, is beyond redemption"--

Practising resurrection : the church being Jesus' hands, feet and heart by Cris Rogers( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Does God bring resurrection, or is God resurrection? Does Jesus bring life, or is Jesus life, in its rawest form? Jesus' death was never about sin management but about the whole created order being restored and redeemed. Jesus died 2,000 years ago, but still today he invites us to join him in this mass resurrection project which involves following him to our death so that we might be resurrected in him. The church was never intended to be a group of people meeting to worship, but a living community of people all dying to themselves so that Jesus would be alive in them, and that they would then bring life to others. Practising Resurrection looks at how the resurrection of Christ is played out in the world everyday. It is an encouragement and a hope that there is a redeeming power at work in the world today
Oriented to faith : transforming the conflict over gay relationships by Tim Otto( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rather than embracing the conflict around gay relationships as an opportunity for the church to talk honestly about human sexuality, Christians continue to hurt one another with the same tired arguments that divide us along predictable political battle lines. If the world is to "know that we are Christians by our love" the church needs to discover better ways to live out the deep unity we share in Christ as we engage with politics and our world. In Oriented to Faith, Tim Otto tells the story of his struggle with being gay and what that taught him about the gospel. With an authentic and compelling personal voice, Tim invites us to explore how God is at work in the world, even amidst the most difficult circumstances, redeeming and transforming the church through this difficult debate. With gentle wisdom and compassionate insight, Tim invites all followers of Jesus to consider how we might work with God through these tensions so that all can be transformed by God's good news in and through Christ

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The message of Jesus changed the world--until the world changed the message. Is a truncated and fragmented version of the good news masquerading as the full, forceful gospel of Jesus? A growing movement of truth-seekers and Jesus-lovers believe so, and they are calling for a return to the first and foundational message of Jesus"--Amazon.com

Red letter revolution : what if Jesus really meant what He said? by Shane Claiborne( )

6 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

Still evangelical? : insiders reconsider political, social and theological meaning by Shane Claiborne( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Evangelicalism in America has cracked, split on the shoals of the 2016 presidential election and its aftermath, leaving many wondering if they want to be in or out of the evangelical tribe. The contentiousness brought to the fore surrounds what it means to affirm and demonstrate evangelical Christian faith amidst the messy and polarized realities gripping our country and world. Who or what is defining the evangelical social and political vision? Is it the gospel or is it culture? For a movement that has been about the primacy of Christian faith, this is a crisis. This collection of essays was gathered by Mark Labberton, president of Fuller Theological Seminary, who provides an introduction to the volume. What follows is a diverse and provocative set of perspectives and reflections from evangelical insiders who wrestle with their responses to the question of what it means to be evangelical in light of their convictions. --
