About "Red Letter Revolution (Unabridged, 7 Cds)"
:?Christianity Today magazine published a full-page article critiquing our new name, suggesting that, ?You people act as though the red letters in the Bible are more important than the black letters.? To that we responded, ?Exactly! Not only do we say that the red letters are more important than the black letters of the Bible, but Jesus said they were!?? ? Tony Campolo, Red Letter Revolution Since the days of the early church, the followers of Jesus have privileged his words above all others when determining how to navigate their lives faithfully. In our broken modern world, such a stance is increasingly rare, even among Christians. Nonetheless, a passionate group of Christians remains devoted to the notion that the words of Jesus direct us to a better way of living and looking at the world. Red Letter Revolution is destined to become an authoritative classic for these radical believers. In this essential manifesto, bestselling authors Shane Claiborne and Tony Campolo envision issue after contemporary issue in direct light of the Bible?s ?red letters.? The result is a startling look at contemporary Christianity and an inspirational reawakening to the gravity of the words and deeds of Jesus. Red Letter Revolution is more than an inspirational or academic diversion. It is an indispensable guidebook for anyone who has ever felt that their own lifestyle, or their own church, was at odds with the Jesus they find speaking to them in red in the pages of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Red Letter Revolution is a timely call back to the true, radical fundamentals of Christianity.
