Christianity Today magazine published a full-page article critiquing our new name, suggesting that, ‘You people act as though the red letters in the Bible are more important than the black letters.’ To that we responded, ‘Exactly! Not only do we say that the red letters are more important than the black letters of the Bible, but Jesus said they were!’” —Tony Campolo, Red Letter Revolution

Since the days of the early church, the followers of Jesus have privileged his words above all others when determining how to navigate their lives faithfully. In our broken modern world, such a stance is increasingly rare, even among Christians. Nonetheless, a passionate group of Christians remains devoted to the notion that the words of Jesus direct us to a better way of living and looking at the world.

Red Letter Revolution is destined to become an authoritative classic for these radical believers. In this essential manifesto, bestselling authors Shane Claiborne and Tony Campolo envision issue after contemporary issue in direct light of the Bible’s “red letters.” The result is a startling look at contemporary Christianity and an inspirational reawakening to the gravity of the words and deeds of Jesus.

Red Letter Revolution is more than an inspirational or academic diversion. It is an indispensable guidebook for anyone who has ever felt that their own lifestyle, or their own church, was at odds with the Jesus they find speaking to them in red in the pages of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Red Letter Revolution is a timely call back to the true, radical fundamentals of Christianity.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lauren Tomlinson | 2/10/2014

    " This book was interesting and thought provoking. It has two authors, and this book is basically a dialogue between the two so that was a different way to read a book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jason Monsman | 2/3/2014

    " content was amazing. written as a conversation between the authors, whose voices sometimes blended and, therefore, was a less effective use of the style. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Raborn | 1/24/2014

    " One of the best books I have read in a long time. This book is like a conversational, postmodern, theology primer. I loved this book! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrea | 1/21/2014

    " I enjoy reading books that challenge my thoughts, but would really prefer to read books like this in a diverse group of people where there could be an open and animated discussion of some hard issues. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jon Andrews | 1/20/2014

    " Highly recommend this book. Thought provoking and challenging. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sara | 12/1/2013

    " One of those books that reminds me of why I am doing what I am doing. I do not fully agree with some of the dicier issues presented by the authors, but I do fully agree with the love and conviction that they bring to ministry and life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Trevor Bryant | 11/5/2013

    " Excellent and honest dialogue about a lot of issues that need to be reexamined. Highly recommend to anyone with an open mind. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aaron | 10/16/2013

    " Turn an interesting conversation on religion and politics into a book, and this is what you get. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrew | 8/16/2013

    " Shane & Tony have a pretty good discussion about issues facing Christianity today. Much of what they discussed was very refreshing to hear. They address things that many churches try to avoid. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Codi | 8/16/2013

    " While I didn't agree with everything written in this book, I still think it was a good read. I suggest knowing where you stand firm in issues of faith before reading it and keeping an open mind in areas of uncertainty in your perspectives. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rick | 6/13/2013

    " What would Christianity look like if believers paid more attention to the words of Jesus (red letters in some Bibles) and less to misinterpretations by preachers, violence in the OT, and the excesses of the organized church? A lot different, I think. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 June | 4/28/2013

    " Two authors wrote the book and neither one of them had answers on how to live your life as a Christian. One author said to give it all up to follow Christ, other other said you can still follow Christ with a job that has medical and IRA benefits. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris Wisener | 4/7/2013

    " Fantastic. It covers a broad amount of topics, and does a good job giving a response to each topic. This is the book that all Christians should read and struggle with. If this revolution actually takes place the world would change for the better, and I think Jesus would smile. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 James Dunning | 3/24/2013

    " The content of this book is worth 5 stars...but it really isn't a book as much as a transcript of an extended conversation. "
