The Holy Thursday Revolution
By: Beatrice Bruteau
"Dr. Bruteau is a philosopher of great measure whose work should be required reading for all who seek the deepest truth about themselves."--Sue Monk Kidd, author, The Secret Life of Bees
Can the world change from a culture of domination to one of friendship? Can human nature evolve for the better? Yes, says philosopher Beatrice Bruteau: The Holy Thursday Revolution shows the way.
In a time of increasing anxiety, the author of Radical Optimism breaks new ground as she explores the two teaching events of Holy Thursday: the Footwashing and the Supper, or Holy Communion. She shows how this new paradigm--a movement from Lord to friend--can dramatically alter our personal and social relations, our economic and political practices.
Drawing from a wide range of disciplines Bruteau presents a unifying vision of a world moving from economic and military domination to one of equality and sharing. She dares to offer hope for the future based on a revolution begun two thousand years ago with the spiritual power to make all things new.
Dr. Beatrice Bruteau, noted for her pioneering work integrating science, philosophy, and religion, is author of a number of ground-breaking books including Radical Optimism, God's Ecstasy, The Other Half of My Soul (with the Dalai Lama), and Jesus Through Jewish Eyes (Orbis). She lives in Winston Salem, North Carolina.
