Publisher's Summary

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.

©1996 Howard Thurman (P)2020 Jay's Enterprise

So current

I had to check the date of publication, because what Mr Thurman wrote was as pertinent today as it was 70 Years ago

Relevant book for our times

This is the kind of book that one needs to own a physical copy for reference and for inquiry. A great book with abundant wisdom and insight on how to be free from the shackles of hatred, fear and hypocrasy. An important book for healing from our collective and personal wounds. I am ordering a physical copy today.
