About-

This book is based on the conviction that "Jesus is the central event of history, because de facto man is not the same after Jesus Christ as before." The revolution announced by Jesus at Nazareth in Luke 4 was a confirmation of the Mosaic year of Jubilee. The Jubilean ethics proclaimed God as the owner of the land and the liberator of His people. The life and teachings of Christ confirm for Trocme the revolutionary nature of Jesus' ethics, especially in regard to economic and political realms.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"The issues of nonviolence and war are increasingly the product of the growing gap between the rich minority amidst a poor majority. North American Christians, part of the rich minority, need to grapple with what it means to be a peacemaker and reconciler in this context. This study is a good place to begin."

John A. Lapp in "Mennonite Weekly Review"

"This is an exciting and significant book, deserving of wide reading by scholars and social activists alike. On exegetical and historical grounds, it challenges many traditional views and practices, and it intends to recover the radicality of a nonviolent revolutionary Jesus."

Frank Stagg in "Journal of Church and State"
