I finished Shane Claiborne and Chris Haw’s excellent book Jesus For President a while back and was left with an interesting feeling. Much of what I read made me say, “Yeah! That’s right! You tell ’em!” Other things I read made me say, “Yikes. I’ve got some changes to make.”
We in Showbread have decided to spend the next six weeks reading this book together in 58 weekly page increments. We’d like to invite you to join us. Each week, the band will get together to discuss what we’ve read and will condense our thoughts into short blogs here and invite those reading along to join in an open discussion of the book at http://forum.rawrockmilitia.com/ where free names will be given to join the group (details to come).
If you’d like to join in, the book is $11.55 on amazon.com (with used copies as low as five bucks), five bucks on half.com, or you can just drop in on your local library (if they don’t have it in the building, they can almost always order it for you).
this week (January 12th-January 19th) We’re reading “Section 1” of the book (the first 60 pages). We’ll have more info on our study as we go, join us.
