Jesus Christ : The Gospels Paperback
Part of the Revolutions series
This volume in the new "Revolutions" series presents Jesus Christ as a figure akin to revolutionaries like Robespierre, Marx, and Che Guevara.
In this new presentation of the Gospels, Terry Eagleton makes a powerful and provocative argument for Jesus Christ as a social, political and moral radical, a friend of anti-imperialists, outcasts and marginals, a champion of the poor, the sick and immigrants, and as an opponent of the rich, religious hierarchs, and hypocrites everywhere - in other words, as a figure akin to revolutionaries like Robespierre, Marx, and Che Guevara.

Review by miquixote
Eagleton's notes should be mandatory reading to accompany the New Testament. He brings Jesus down to earth, lets us know what the sholars really know minus ideological strings attached and without diminishing Jesus' revolution in the process.
