The Politics of Jesus

Full Product Description

The Politics of Jesus is a powerful new biography of Jesus told from the margins. Renowned ethicist Miguel De La Torre argues that we all create Jesus in our own image, reflecting and reinforcing the values of communities-sometimes for better, and often for worse. In light of the increasing economic and social inequality around the world, De La Torre argues that what the world needs is a Jesus of solidarity, who also comes from the underside of global power. The Politics of Jesus is a search for a Jesus that resonates specifically with the U.S. Latino/a community, as well as other marginalized groups. The book unapologetically rejects the Eurocentric Jesus for the Hispanic Jesus, whose mission is to give life abundantly, who resonates with the Latino/a experience of disenfranchisement, and who works for real social justice and political change.

The Politics of Jesus by Miguel A. De La Torre was published by Rowman & Littlefield in June 2015. The ISBN for The Politics of Jesus is 9781442250352.
