Praise

“[Jesus and the Disinherited] is the centerpiece of the Black prophet-mystic’s lifelong attempt to bring the harrowing beauty of the African-American experience into deep engagement with what he called ‘the religion of Jesus.’ Ultimately his goal was to offer this humanizing combination as the basis for an emancipatory way of being, moving toward a fundamentally unchained life that is available to all the women and men everywhere who hunger and thirst for righteousness, especially those ‘who stand with their backs against the wall.’”
—Vincent Harding, from the Foreword

“No other publication in the twentieth century has upended antiquated theological notions, truncated political ideas, and socially constructed racial fallacies like Jesus and the Disinherited. Thurman’s work keeps showing up on the desk of anti-apartheid activists, South American human rights workers, civil rights champions, and now Black Lives Matter advocates.”
—Rev. Otis Moss III, author of Blue Note Preaching in a Post-Soul World and senior pastor, Trinity United Church of Christ

“Howard Thurman was one of the great moral clarions of his time and Jesus and the Disinherited, his most indispensable work. Here is an uncompromising vision of Christian ethics and the meaning of Jesus’s life to the least, the last, and the lost. Thurman’s prophetic witness and piercing intellect are as relevant to our current hour of tumult as they were in 1949, when he first put these incisive thoughts to paper.”
—Jelani Cobb, author of The Substance of Hope
