Is a person who unwaveringly follows the teachings of Jesus a conservative or a radical? Radical is an interesting term. “Living as an ordinary radical” is the subtitle for Shane Claiborne’s book. I don’t normally use ordinary and radical together.

Endorsements from John Perkins, Tom Sine, Tony Campolo, Ron Sider, Brian McLaren, and Jim Wallis are enough to make me put Shane Claiborne speaking at George Fox University chapel on my calendar. Yesterday morning I sat with my daughter and with a friend who, in his own way, is an ordinary radical. Shane Claiborne convinced me that it’s possible to be both ordinary and radical.
