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 study, author and activist Shane Claiborne guides on the audacious journey of creating a world filled with peace, with the goal of ending violence wherever we can. As a Christian, Shane loves the resurrection because it's the promise that love can conquer hatred and life can conquer death. Shane believes that we all share this vision of a world, one in which love triumphs over hatred, life conquers death, and we practice the resurrection every day.
A couple of years ago Ben Cohen, co-founder of Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream, and Shane Clairborne crossed paths. Ben said to Shane, "I have read your books, and I like what I see." Shane said to Ben, "I have eaten your ice cream, and I like what I taste." They started dreaming and scheming...and Jesus, Bombs, and Ice Cream was born.
A host of talented firends have joined Shane and Ben for the video extravaganza, adding their gifts and imaginations to the growing movement of people who want to live in a world with fewer bombs and more ice cream. This participant's guide is packed full of stories, quotes, reflections and questions for groups and individuals to discuss and discern how they can help make a more peaceful world a reality. Designed for use with the video.
