Jesus Christ: The Gospels (Revolutions)by Terry Eagleton
Synopses & Reviews
In this new presentation of the Gospels, Terry Eagleton makes a powerful and provocative argument for Jesus Christ as a social, political and moral radical, a friend of anti-imperialists, outcasts and marginals, a champion of the poor, the sick and immigrants, and as an opponent of the rich, religious hierarchs, and hypocrites everywhere — in other words, as a figure akin to revolutionaries like Robespierre, Marx, and Che Guevara.
Hugo Chavez claims that Jesus Christ was "the greatest socialist in history." In this new presentation of the Gospels, renowned thinker Terry Eagleton asks: Was Jesus a revolutionary? Eagleton's provocative new introduction searches for the hidden radicalism in Jesus' life and thought.
