Albert Nolan's portrait introduces us to Jesus before he became the object of the Christian faith, operating in history in a specific social context, addressing concrete hopes, and engaging in controversy and social conflict. Here is a man who was deeply involved with the real problems of his time-- which turn out to be the real problems of our time, as well. “God is speaking to us in a new way today. God is speaking to us in the events and problems of our time. Jesus can help us to understand the voice of truth but, in the last analysis, it is we who must decide and act”.
After reading this book Sister Helen Prejean stated:
“Now more than ever we need the close- to- suffering people, liberating Jesus described in Albert Nolen’s Jesus before Christianity. If I had my way, I’d get millions of copies of this freshly minted edition to drop from helicopters into churches and schools, political rallies, state legislatures, city councils, and Fortune 500 board meetings. It has the power to change lives. I know, because it changed mine.”
Please purchase the book in advance. Read the Introduction and Chapter 1 for the first session. (Analog Books is a partner of Martha Retreat Centre).
