In this classic theological work, acclaimed theologian and religious leader Howard Thurman 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, Thurman writes. The example of Jesus' life of suffering, pain, and overwhelming love offers a solution that ends our descent into moral nihilism. Although Jesus was scorned and forced to live outside society, he advocated a love of self and others that defeats fear and the hatred that destroys our souls and the world around us. Jesus and the Disinherited

reaches past anger and distrust toward a vision of unity.

Howard Thurman (1900รป1981) was the first black dean of Marsh Chapel at Boston University and cofounder of the Church for the Fellowship of All Peoples in San Francisco, California, the first interracially copastored church in America. Life magazine called him one of the great preachers of the 20th century, and Thurman was a spiritual adviser to Martin Luther King Jr.
