Dr. Obery M. Hendricks, Jr., New York Seminary professor and author, will be in Atlanta to discuss his controversial new book, The Politics of Jesus: Rediscovering the True Revolutionary Nature of Jesus’ Teachings and How They Have Been Corrupted. The book provides an historical analysis of how Jesus, a first century revolutionary, became a “meek and mild servant of the status quo” and offers a critical look at modern politicians “of faith.” Jon Meacham, author of “American Gospel: God, The Founding Fathers and the Making of a Nation,” declared The Politics of Jesus to be “essential reading for Americans…”

Hendricks, an ordained elder in the African Methodist Episcopal Church, will give a public talk and sign books on Monday, November 13, 2006 at 7 pm at Paschal’s Restaurant on 180 Northside Drive, NW Atlanta, GA 30313.

Franklin, Jr., Dr. Rosetta E. Ross, chair of the Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies at Spelman College and the Reverend Raphael G.
