A God of Incredible Surprises:
Jesus of Galilee
by Virgilio P. Elizondo (Rowman & Littlefield)
Jesus offered hope to the people on the fringes of society, the ND professor of theology says, as he combines personal stories, theological observations and an analysis of the Gospel narratives in a reflection on the humanity of Jesus. Elizondo calls Jesus the “Mextizo Messiah” and compares his station in life to present-day members of the Latino American community.
