Re-imagine leading and following in a world longing for true justice, compassion and freedom. Followers of Christ yearn to see the world changed in compassionate, positive, effective ways. As prophetic voices, Shane Claiborne and John Perkins lead the way in this move to be the hands, feet and heart of Jesus.

One is young, a self proclaimed reformed redneck who grew up in the hills of Tennessee and now lives in inner city Philadelphia and the other is decades older, an African-American civil rights leader who was almost beaten to death by police in Mississippi, and went on to found a reconciliation movement and counsel three American presidents.

Claiborne and Perkins draw on more than a century of combined following and learning, activating and leading. Together they craft a timely message for ordinary people willing to take radical steps to see real change happen. In Follow Me to Freedom, Claiborne and Perkins lead the way toward justice for all, unfolding a proven strategy as ancient as the patriarchs of faith and as fresh as the needs of every human heart. Starting with Moses as a model, they re-imagine leading and following in a world desperate for true social justice, compassion and freedom. They offer practical ways to internalize and live out God ™s promise of freedom in the 21st century. Followers of Christ will not only be inspired but also catalyzed into action, and the world will never be the same.

    " John Perkins is my new hero. I wish that I could sit down with him and have a long chat about reconciliation. Shane, of course, is always the man. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Josh Smetzer | 10/22/2013

    " Interesting concept of being both a follower and a leader, but at times struggled through their conversations. Still a good book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Justin | 10/4/2013

    " There's plenty of thoughtful material here and it's a good book, but it's not the sort of consistently challenging and inspiring stuff I expect from Claiborne. That's more a commment on the type of book it is rather than its quality, though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily | 8/19/2013

    " refreshing, encouraging, challenging, typical shane but with the added voice of john perkins which was really good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ian | 7/26/2013

    " The whole book is basically a conversation, it has some incredible moments but on the whole it doesn't flow quite as well as Clairborns other books. Worth a read though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brent | 6/19/2013

    " An excellent and thought-provoking book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sarah Boyette | 4/12/2013

    " Pretty dry reading that could and should have been one article, not a whole book. Condensing it would have made it readable, useable, and fascinating. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tricia | 2/18/2013

    " The authors are two people that I highly respect and have enjoyed reading and hearing speak over the years. It was kind of like being in a room while they talked to each other. It warmed my heart to hear their stories. They are very challenging and compassionate men. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrea | 10/22/2012

    " Really enjoyed how this book was a series of conversations between John Perkins and Shane Claiborne. Very thought provoking. Made me question what I am passionate about/what do I feel a burden for. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ashley | 6/20/2012

    " Challenging, but preachy...the entire time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nate Custer | 11/11/2011

    " The book has a strong evangelical tinge and makes a set of assumptions I am not comfortable. But it contains grounded stories and some good insights. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather | 7/23/2011

    " Inspiring, especially considering the author's background of evangelical Christianity. "

    " Shane Claiborne and John Perkins perfectly complimented each other in this book. It gave me many deep things to ponder on my journey. I'm glad I read it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ryan Wilson | 2/24/2011

    " Book on leadership by some interesting and inspiring characters. I preferred their stories about their experiences more than their discussions on leadership. Both have been part of some creative initiatives. A bit scattered in its format, but I did like the back-and-forth style of writing. "
