New Release Spotlight: Terry Stokes

Happy release day to author Terry Stokes!

Countless people, including (and sometimes especially) those from religious backgrounds, are exploring radical ideas.

In Jesus and the Abolitionist, Stokes introduces readers to the ancient practice of anarchy and how it intersects with Christian beliefs and values. We see how beliefs about God, humanity, divine-human interaction, the Bible, and more can be illuminated and faithfully reformulated through an anarchist lens. This view, which Stokes calls anarchist Christianity, seeks to abolish tyrannical systems that do not recognize the changing values of our times and that disempower the people.

We can build an ethical world–one built on structures of care–and anarchy might just be the unlikely key.

Congratulations Terry!
