    There are things I love about this book and whole-heartedly agree with because they are based on Scriptural Truth, but other things I find very biased and opinionated. I think the author’s heart is very much in the right place, and I applaud his efforts to be more like Jesus and to lead the way in the Simple Way. I only recommend this to those who can read this with a discerning heart and mind.

    In a post-evangelical-support-for-Trump America, I've had some crisis of faith, and I've been rereading a lot of books from my youthful energetic days, and this was one of them. It took me awhile to read because I kept escaping into fun sci-fi books rather than stay in the real world. What can I say? I'm a Shane Claiborne fan. I'm just old and tired, and not really in the mood to go to Iraq to protest war. I just want to be a comfortable Christian, vote the right way, and enjoy my Sunday afternoons. This version has been updated significantly, and if you are debating reading the original or this one, go with this one.

    This was both an excellent and simultaneously difficult read; excellent in the sense of containing a wealth of story and wit, born out of lived experiences; difficult for those same reasons, as it issues and functions as a call on its readers to examine the actions they both do and do not take, and the respective individual and collective consequences of those decisions. This book drips with gospel, which convicts and demands response; having heard, one cannot forget or pass over that call so easily or painlessly in their daily life.

    Irresistible storiesThis book is a mix of autobiography, theology, politics, and humor. The tenth anniversary edition has some extra content including a great FAQ section. The stories told will move anyone a little closer to the poor and oppressed. I also think it will lead most people to take action, even if in a small way. This will probably be a book I will re-read every few years to be reminded of its great message. Thanks Shane!

    An extraordinary book that challenges believers to be disciples - to seek to love God, love each other and follow Jesus. Shane intersperses his (prophetic) voice with story after story of how we can change the world through what he calls "holy mischief".

    Thought provokingI loved being changed by not only Shane's written word, but also the stories of his life. A lot to think about.

    This was a very challenging book. There were some areas that I did not agree with him on and others were very convicting. I do recommend this book.

    Life changingI am very thankful for Shane sharing his journey and encouraging us to think differently about how we are living.

    I really find this book challenging and scary. I enjoyed reading it, but it left me feeling bad about myself and how I view others. Shane gave me a whole new way to view the world, specifically, people and community . I'm not ready to become a radical, but I definitely have some work to do.

    This book really makes you reassess your thought processes and what it means to be human...even if you don't agree with everything Shane says you come away with the simple fact that we all need to reassess how we see the world and those living in it. I have been awakened to the premise that our traditional churches are dead in a fundamental sense and that change needs to take place at the ground level. I know that we as Christians need to stop carrying our bibles around as ornaments that decorate our arms and our nightstands. Instead we need to really start reading them and understand what they say and what they really mean NOT what we want them to mean or what makes us comfortable. This is a book that can not be read once and then shelved on a bookcase so that you can say you have expanded your worldly views. Instead, it needs to be read on a regular basis in order to dig deeper into your spiritual health and growth assessment. Thank you Shane, deepest respect to you and your community for doing what most are afraid to do...

    If you're wondering how this 10th Anniversary Edition has changed from the first edition, here's what you need to know: In addition to two new chapters ("Scrap Notes from the Revolution: Frequently Asked Questions from the Past Decade" and a fourth appendix on "Holy Mischief"), this book offers readers the incredible gift of setting aside the majority (if not all) of the revisions throughout the book in a different font and color (making it incredibly easy to skim through for the revisions). While some of the emendations are repeated in the new chapters, the new material (by my guesstimation) comes out to at least 80-100 pages, making both the purchase and read worth it.

    I started reading this book in college and finally finished it with my mom's group at church. I think Shane's heart is in the right place, and I was definitely challenged by a lot of his ideas. But, I did grow weary of his writing style.
