Jesus, Revolutionary of Peace: A Nonviolent Christology in the Book of Revelation
by Mark Bredin
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.
