About the event

Shane Claiborne is a prominent speaker, activist, and best-selling

author.  Shane worked with Mother Teresa in Calcutta, and founded

The Simple Way in Philadelphia.  He heads up Red Letter Christians, a

movement of folks who are committed to living "as if Jesus meant the

things he said." Shane is a champion for grace which has led him to jail

advocating for the homeless, and to places like Iraq and Afghanistan to

stand against war. Now grace fuels his passion to end the death penalty

and help stop gun violence.

Shane’s books include Jesus for President, Red Letter Revolution,

Common Prayer, Follow Me to Freedom, Jesus, Bombs and Ice Cream,

Becoming the Answer to Our Prayers, Executing Grace, his classic The

Irresistible Revolution, and his newest book, Beating Guns. He has

been featured in a number of films including "Another World Is

Possible" and "Ordinary Radicals." His books have been translated into

more than a dozen languages. Shane speaks over one hundred times a

year, nationally and internationally. His work has appeared in Esquire,

SPIN, Christianity Today, TIME, and The Wall Street Journal, and he

has been on everything from Fox News and Al Jazeera to CNN and

NPR. He’s given academic lectures at Harvard, Princeton, Liberty,

Duke, and Notre Dame. 

Shane speaks regularly at denominational gatherings, festivals, and

conferences around the globe.
