A young author who liked letters red,
So skinny he looked underfed,
When his co-author called,
and said he was bald,
Well the young one did offer him dreds.
Thanks to the people at Thomas Nelson, I’ve got ten copies to give away of the new book by Tony Campolo and Shane Claiborne, Red Letter Revolution: What If Jesus Really Meant What He Said?. Among the endorsements:
“This book, by a young and an elderly Christian, will help you decide how we Christians could change the world if we took the ‘red letter’ words of Jesus literally and seriously.” —President Jimmy Carter
“In Red Letter Revolution the uncompromised truth of Jesus’ teachings are given voice by two modern-day Christian leaders who do more than preach this Good News. They walk the talk and lead the way.” —Archbishop Desmond Tutu
This competition will run until 12pm CDT on Monday. The ten books will go to those who leave the best limericks about Christian social justice in the comment section.
