André Trocmé (1901-1971) is famous for his role in saving thousands of Jews from the Nazis, as pastor of the French village of Le Chambon. But his bold deeds did not spring from a void. They were rooted in his understanding of Jesus’ way of nonviolence and the social implications of Jesus’ proclamation of the Kingdom of God on earth.

In this book, you’ll encounter a Jesus you may have never met before – a Jesus who not only calls for spiritual transformation, but for practical changes that answer the most perplexing political, economic, and social problems of our time.

Newly revised and expanded, this edition includes a concise biography of André Trocmé, and extensive notes on how contemporary thinkers have grappled with his ideas.

Jesus cares nothing about "social Justice" or "this world". anyone who understands the word of God knows that God cares about man's eternity not his present state on this miserable fallen world.

One of the original 1% in his righteous response to the Holocaust. A good companion read is "Lest Innocent Blood be Shed" that gives a vivid account of the miraculous story of La Chambon and Trocme's faithful leadership.

This is a superb book, informed by a lifetime of biblical study, deep thought and heroic acts, that every Christian should read. It speaks authoritatively on issues of war, social justice and the responsibilities of God's people in our broken world. I've shared it with lay and clergy friends, and encourage everyone to do likewise.

As a Progressive Evangelical Christian, who also has a firm commitment to the social justice gospel and the very clear teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ regarding social & economic justice in our world, this book is an excellent resource for both personal study and ministry teaching.
