The Lux Veritas Speaker Series welcomes Shane Claiborne.
Shane Claiborne is a prominent speaker, activist, and best-selling author. Shane founded The Simple Way, a New Monastic community in Philadelphia and heads up Red Letter Christians, a movement of folks who are committed to living "as if Jesus meant the things he said." His work has appeared in Esquire, SPIN, Christianity Today, and The Wall Street Journal, and he has been on everything from Fox News and Al Jazeera to CNN and NPR. He’s given academic lectures at Harvard, Princeton, Liberty, Duke, and Notre Dame.
Shane is a champion for grace which has led him to jail advocating for the homeless, and to places like Iraq and Afghanistan to stand against war. And now grace fuels his passion to end the death penalty. Shane’s books include Jesus for President, Common Prayer, Jesus, Bombs and Ice Cream, his classic The Irresistible Revolution and his newest book, Executing Grace.
The Lux Veritas Speaker Series - drawing from North Central College’s religious and academic heritage - engages our community in conversations with leaders whose faith motivates them to transform the world. Inspired by our college seal, a lamp representing “light” and a book representing “truth”, these events connect us with leaders that explore important issues in a spirit of truth while spreading light into the world as a means to live out our purpose.
