Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this classic theological treatise, the acclaimed theologian and religious leader Howard Thurman (1900-1981) demonstrates how the gospel may be read as a manual of resistance for the poor and disenfranchised. Jesus is a partner in the pain of the oppressed and the example of His life offers a solution to ending the descent into moral nihilism. Hatred does not empower--it decays. Only through self-love and love of one another can God's justice prevail.

Synopsis:

As we struggle today with issues of poverty, racism, and spiritual disengagement, Howard Thurman's discerning reading of the message of renewal through self-love as exemplified in the life of Jesus resonates powerfully once again. Thurman's work reaches past anger and distrust toward a vision of unity — a welcome epistle in this new century.

"Richly endowed. . . . It is the centerpiece of the black prophet-mystic's lifelong [work]."

--Vincent Harding

This is a phenomenal read! The last chapter on love, in particular, resonates with me. We all - black and white - have a lot to learn from his wisdom.
