Summary

This volume in the 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 marginal, 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.

Misleading title

Eagleton's brief introduction is worth listening to, but it is only a small part of the audiobook.
