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.

Read the book on our travels and found it quite refreshing to read about real-life experiences (one often just reads the theory, people blogging about people writing about people thinking). Real-life stories often inspire me in a deeper way.

Habe noch nie (oder fast nie?) ein Buch zweimal gelesen. Aber dieses möchte ich noch einmal lesen. Fand es extrem inspirierend. Das sind nicht einfach theologische Fragen gewälzt, Shane lebt eine solche erfrischende Art von “Christ-sein”, die ansteckend ist.
