Shane Claiborne delivered one of the Princeton Lectures on Youth, Church, and Culture at the Princeton Forum on Youth Ministry, April 27–29, 2010. He is a founding member of The Simple Way faith community in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and author of The Irresistible Revolution: Living as an Ordinary Radical. Claiborne is an original voice, a creative spirit, in a gathering movement of young people known as the “new monastics.” With virtues like simplicity and imagination, they are engaging great contradictions of our culture—beginning with the gap between the churches they were raised in, the needs of the poor, and the “loneliness” they find in our culture‘s vision of adulthood.
