Irresistable Revolution Resources

irresistible revolutionThe day I finished up a 30 page church planting proposal, I began digging into Shane Clairborne’s book The Irresistable Revolution. Two days later, I finished it and was wrecked and questioning all the visioning, plans and, strategies I had jotted down regarding church planting.

I was humbled and reminded that very few of us are capable of doing truly great things, but every one of us can do simple tiny things with great love (to paraphrase Mother Teresa).

Here are some resources I’ve tracked down regarding Shane, The Irresistable Revolution, and the New Monasticism in no particular order

    You’ll want to add Potter Street Records to your list of resources. Potter Street is where The Simple Way is located. The record label features folks like Psalters and Jes Karper on their roster.
    Thanks for putting together a great resource!
