What would the world look like if we took Jesus seriously? Shane Claiborne discussed this question, as well as peacemaking, social justice and more in a convocation lecture entitled “What if Jesus Meant the Stuff He Said?” on Oct. 6, 2011.
Claiborne is a founding partner of The Simple Way, a faith community in Philadelphia, which practices living simply as a commitment to God and love. According to The Simple Way’s website, it “has helped birth and connect radical faith communities around the world.”
He graduated from Eastern University, St. Davids, Pa., did graduate work at Princeton Theological Seminary, Princeton, N.J., and even worked alongside Mother Teresa in Calcutta for 10 weeks.
A bestselling author, Claiborne wrote The Irresistible Revolution: Living as an Ordinary Radical.
