Nearly 2,000 years ago, Jesus urged his followers to live a life of love and peace. And he was willing to come to Earth to live, die and rise again to make this a reality. In this six-session, video-based study author and activist Shane Claiborne guides you on the audacious journey of creating a world filled with peace with the goal of ending violence wherever possible. As a Christian, Shane loves the resurrection because it's the promise that love can conquer hatred and that life can conquer death. Shane believes that we all share a vision of a world where we can triumph over hatred with love, see life conquer death, and practice that resurrection life every day. A host of talented friends have joined Shane, adding their gifts and imagination to the growing movement of people who want to live in a world with fewer bombs and more ice cream.
