“What Matters Most: How We Got the Point but Missed the Person” is a reprint of a 2004 book, entitled “Out of the Question…Into the Mystery.”
That said, this is a powerful book that needed to be re-considered for an audience, myself included, that missed it when it was first released.
“Belief can exist in isolation, but faith requires a relationship.” For without dynamic, engaging deep relationships — relationship with Jesus and then relationship with people — we cannot demonstrate love.

Shane Claiborne and Tony Campolo wrote this book as a dialogue. Their hope is their conversation provides us with insight as we seek to live the teachings of Jesus.
Introduction: Why This Book?
“Whenever the word evangelical is used these days, a stereotype comes to mind…Trying to escape that definition, a group of us gathered together to adopt a new name for ourselves: Red Letter Christians.
Starting in 1899, Bibles have been published that highlight the words of Jesus in red. We adopted the name Red Letter Christians not only to differentiate ourselves from the social values generally associated with evangelicals but also to emphasize that we are Christians who take the radical teachings of Jesus seriously and who are committed to living them out in our everyday lives.”
