Notes: "The foundational idea for this book, what would the life of Jesus have been like had he lived as an African American in our modern context, comes from Howard Thurman's Jesus and the Disinherited (Harper and Row, 1956)."--Introduction, p. ix.
"This books...seeks to present one distinct portrait of a life lived by one who was weak who fought against the powerful. It is not the story of the Jesus of the Gospels because both Dr. Scott and I affirm that Christ was a once-and-for-all-time distinct revelation of God within humanity. Rather, it is a book about a person who was animated by some of the very same passions and visions that we've come to recognize within our own lives as being central to the message and heart of Jesus Christ."--Introduction, p. xii.
