Abstract:  From the Bible Belt to Calcutta to the ghettoes of Philadelphia, Claiborne's book is a history of personal change. It is also a story of how one can become an "everyday radical." He believes that ordinary people can go back to the early teachings of Christianity and live in a simple way ignoring the trappings of modern society-the need for material wealth and social status. As one of the founders of the Simple Way, a series of communal houses in the United States who live amongst the homeless and poor he has confidence that profound change can come from "little acts of love." Christians need to find ways to love to offset the terrible state of the world that we live in today.
