Fatherless in Galilee explores the stories of Jesus, who, lacking a father, called upon God to act in this paternal role. Andries van Aarde offers an explanation of the historical figure of Jesus who destroyed conventional patriarchal values by caring for fatherless children within the Palestinian society of his time. Aarde's compelling portrait adds an entirely new dimension of historical Jesus scholarship by convincingly demonstrating that Jesus' own experience of marginalization provided the foundation for his compassionate ministry to society's outcasts.
