Not yet....I saw it in the bookstore while looking for something else.

It's one of those, "not sure if I want to read it" books because of what it might tell me.....'ya know?

Just started reading it the other day.....pretty good book. The author (Shane Claiborne) is a Monastic, and while I'm not 100% sure that giving up all of my worldly possessions is the answer, he makes some really valid points on living a Christ-like life and helping/loving those around us.

Later.
