Fwd: My new book was just published this week

---------- Forwarded message ---------
From: Jerry Bowyer <>

What did Jesus really say about social justice?                                                     


My book, The Maker Versus the Takers: What Jesus Really Said About Social Justice and Economics went on sale this week in bookstore and on Amazon. It is published by Post Hill Press.

What we find is a Jesus whose denunciations were not aimed at the wealthy in general, but rather at the members of the ruling class and their cronies who were extractors of wealth from society, rather than producers of wealth. This book definitely demolishes the myth of a proto-socialist revolutionary Jesus, in favor of the picture of a Jesus who was a small business entrepreneur denouncing economic exploitation by the powerful and the connected.

Along the way, it also demolishes the allegation, which has existed for far too long, that the Gospels promote anti-Semitism.
