Howard Thurman's JESUS AND THE DISINHERITED 1

February 27, 2021

"The masses of men live with their backs constantly against the wall. They are the poor, the disinherited, the dispossessed. What does our religion say to them? The issue is not what it counsels them to do for others whose need may be greater, but what religion offers to meet their own needs. The search for an answer to this question is perhaps the most important religious quest of modern life." Thurman, Howard. Jesus and the Disinherited (p. 13). Beacon Press. Kindle Edition.
