Now Reading: Jesus’ Radical Message

Early in 2010, Z Holler published his book Jesus’ Radical Message: Subversive Sermons for Today’s Seekers. Z grew up in Greensboro and moved back here as a reverend  later in life. He co-founded the Beloved Community Center and is one of the  people I most admire.

The book is a collection of sermons he gave which, true to the book’s name, explores what Jesus stood for and meant in an untraditional way. In the spirit of liberation theology and radical Christianity in general, Z’s book helps offer a better understanding of the connection between Christianity and social justice, particularly but not only through Jesus. It’s an interesting and important read regardless of your beliefs/faith.

It’s for sale online and also in a number of bookstores in the area.
