Jesus and the Disinherited

by Howard Thurman

In this clas­sic the­o­log­i­cal trea­tise, the acclaimed the­olo­gian and reli­gious leader Howard Thur­man (19001981) 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.
