Jesus and the Nonviolent Revolution Reviews


Plough has done scholars, pastors, and laypersons all a great service by reprinting this classic. Not everyone will agree with every detail, but all will feel the compelling force of Trocme's cumulative case. This is a book worth pondering at length. -- Craig L. Blomberg, Denver Seminary
Trocme has the prophetic gift of bypassing doctrinal fluff and cutting to the heart of Jesus' message: a stark call for repentance, love, and socio-economic change. Read him with caution: this book may change your life. -- Donald Kraybill, author, The Upside-Down Kingdom
This splendid volume deserves wider recognition as the classic it truly is. -- Richard Cassidy, author, Paul in Chains
