Shane Claiborne is Stalking Me (or Jesus for President)

Shane Claiborne, originally uploaded by echobase_2000.

So last weekend I'm wondering through Barnes and Noble looking at cookbooks, when my wife brings me a book.

"I think you'd like this," Sara said.

"What is it," I asked?

"It looks really interesting," came the answer.

It was a book by Shane Claiborne,a guy who I'd been interested in for a year. More than that, I'm interesting in what he has to say.

Turns out CNN is interested too.

Of course, had the story not lent itself to a title like "Young evangelicals not a lock for Republicans", I'm not sure CNN would care.

But read the story, and read Shane's book. And if you're at Cornerstone, check out what he has to say.

Shane calls himself "an ordinary radical" and not in the scary left-wing radical kind of way, the sell-everything-you-own rooted-in-the-Bible kind of radical.

Shane Claiborne was quite possibly my favorite chapel speaker during four years (and hundreds of chapel sessions) at Wheaton College. That guy is awesome.

How cool to have him for a chapel speaker.

Yeah, his Jesus for President thing was really interesting. I'll have to post more on that later, when I have a chance to collect my thoughts.
