Summary

Summary

A political philosopher examines early Christian writings to discover the message of social reform underlying the teachings of Jesus. Based on the premise that Jesus could not speak his thoughts openly without running afoul of the authorities, the book demonstrate how he sought to replace worldly systems of command and status with a society governed by a spirit of holiness.
