A very unusual book, disturbingly radical, but gentle and optimistic. Not a logically developed idea but a collection of thoughts, experiences and stories expounding the idea that Jesus really is advocating a totally different way of living – scorning fame, riches, success – in this crazy, corrupt world. Community, renunciation and sharing for the sake of the needy, justice, caring for the creation, loving the unlovely, humility wrt Church and political leaders, and much fun – these are Shane’s vision.
