Reviews

This splendid volume deserves wider recognition as the classic it truly is.--Richard Cassidy, author, Paul in Chains
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 Trocmé's cumulative case. This is a book worth pondering at length.--Craig L. Blomberg, Denver Seminary
Trocmé 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 book - and especially this newly expanded edition - deserves to be more widely known. Trocmé's focus saves any account of salvation from pietistic distortion...His comparison of Gandhi and Jesus is also extremely important.--Stanley Hauerwas, Duke Divinity School
