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.”

In the evening when were not talking or laughing I’m “not watching TV.” Yes, the TV is on, but I am usually reading while the TV plays in the background. Somehow I can pay attention to both my reading and the TV. I’m multitasking.
Maybe I’m maximizing my time.
Maybe I’m increasing my productivity.
Maybe I’m lying to myself.
What I do know is that I’m dropping in on Facebook, checking an email inbox, messaging a friend or reading my RSS subs.
Tonight something changed. Right in the middle of reading a great article written by Shane Claiborne I stopped.
