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.
EDITORS: Walter Earl Fluker is professor of philosophy and religion and executive director of the Leadership Center at Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia. Catherine Tumber is a Du Bois fellow at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
"[Jesus and the Disinherited] is the centerpiece of the Black prophet-mystics lifelong attempt to bring the harrowing beauty of the African-American experience into deep engagement with what he called the religion of Jesus. Ultimately his goal was to offer this humanizing combination as the basis for an emancipatory way of being, moving toward a fundamentally unchained life that is available to all the women and men everywhere who hunger and thirst for righteousness, especially those who stand with their backs against the wall."
Vincent Harding, from the Foreword
