Red Letter Revolution: What If Jesus Really Meant What He Said? was written by best-selling authors and Christian thinkers Shane Claiborne and Tony Campolo. they’re the Lennon and McCartney of Red Letter Christianity.
Red Letter Christianity is concerned with paying particular attention to the words spoken by Jesus Christ in the New Testament. a lot of Bible will have Christ’s speech in red letters. hence, Red Letter Christians, Red Letter Christianity, Red Letter Revolution.
the red letters of the New Testament are challenging. they also speak to a lot of areas of life; explicitly and implicitly. Claiborne and Campolo touch on a number of issues and faith and life in three main sections of the book.
Part 1: Red Letter Theology
Part 2: Red Letter Living
Part 3: Red Letter World
the book is a series of dialouges. reading the book is like sitting in on a conversation between Claiborne and Campolo.
it’s great. it’s a must read for the Church today. too often Christianity gets used for political and social reasons outside of authentic Christian faith. get back to the red letters. get back to the words of Christ.
this book is dedicated “To all of us, young and old, who want a Christianity that looks like Jesus again.”
