Featuring illustration by industry standouts Sabrina Jones, Gary Dumm, and Nick Thorkelson, Radical Jesus offers a fresh and inspiring look at basic Christian concepts and social justice themes from the life of Jesus onward. Readers will be drawn into stories from scripture, the Radical Reformation, and peacemaking efforts today in Iraq and Colombia, among others.
