Editorial Reviews

Craig L. Blomberg
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.
Stanley Hauerwas
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.
Donald Kraybill
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.
Richard Cassidy
This splendid volume deserves wider recognition as the classic it truly is.
