    About The Book

    André Trocmé of Le Chambon is famous for his role in saving thousands of Jews from the Nazis during World War II. But his bold deeds did not spring from a void. They were rooted in his under­standing of Jesus’ way of nonviolence – an under­standing that gave him the remarkable insights contained in this classic work.

    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.

    This revised and expanded edition includes a concise biography of the author and extensive notes on how contemporary thinkers have grappled with Trocmé’s ideas.
