This book aims to demonstrate that the figure of Jesus in the book of Revelation can be best understood as an active non-violent revolutionary. Jesus was a warrior of the non-violent tradition. He sought to conquer his enemies not through violence but through compassion. Seeking to present a comprehensive, balanced view of this non-violent Jesus, Mark Bredin engages with Mahatma Gandhi’s theory to explore the place of non-violence in the biblical tradition.
