Seminal Books in Activist Theology: Radical Jesus by John VincentSeminal Books in Activist Theology
October 25, 2018, 7:15pm Eastern Time
Reading and discussing books that help to galvanize faith-based consciousness in movement.
On November 5, 2019, we will continue our Seminal Books Salon Series in which we discuss books that have influenced movements.
The Center and Library for the Bible and Social Justice (CLBSJ) has nearly a dozen books by Rev. Dr. John Vincent on its shelves, donated by Walter Wink, Norman Gottwald, Ed Long, and the Urban Theology Unit. As such, we are honored to host Rev. Vincent in person to discuss his seminal book, Radical Jesus: The Way of Jesus Then and Now, first published in 1986.
An impressive mixture of contextual Biblical interpretation and devotional journey, Radical Jesus intersperses socio-historical analysis of Jesus’s context with reflections on how those details are relevant in today’s struggles for dignity from the bottom of society. For more about the book, read the full review by Norman Gottwald and Amy Dalton.
The book talk will be held on at 7:15pm at the Center and Library for the Bible and Social Justice on the campus of Stony Point Center — 5 Cricketown Road, Stony Point, NY — and offered over video-conference. If you would like to join the video conference, please visit https://zoom.us/j/369465199 at that time.
This book talk is part of a 4-day visit that John is making to the greater NYC region, co-sponsored by CLBSJ, Jersey City Together, New York Theological Seminary, the Urban Theology Unit of North America, and the Community of Living Traditions at Stony Point Center.
