Albert Nolan's portrait introduces us to Jesus before he became the object of Christian faith, operating in history in a specific social context, addressing concrete hopes, and engaging in controversy and social conflict. Here is a man who was deeply involved with the real problems of his time--which turn out to be the real problems of our time, as well. As he writes, "God is speaking to us in a new way today. God is speaking to us in the events and problems of our time. Jesus can help us to understand the voice of Truth but, in the last analysis, it is we who must decide and act.
Albert Nolan, OP, is a South African Dominican priest and theologian who played an important role in the church struggle against apartheid. His other Orbis books include Jesus Today: A Spirituality of Radical Freedom and Hope in an Age of Despair. .
