Jesus and the disinherited

Offers a theological treatise that demonstrates how the gospel may be read as a manual of resistance for the poor and disenfranchised. Thurman argues that within Jesus' life of suffering, pain, and overwhelming love is the solution that will prevent our descent into moral nihilism. For although scorned and forced to live outside society, Jesus advocated a love of self and others that defeats fear and the hatred that decays ours souls and the world around us --From publisher description
