It's a wonderful book, and I'll write more about it soon (promise!). For now, however, I shared some of the facts in the book in my sermon today, on the Widow's Might. It's an example of being political in the pulpit, in the sense that Jesus took sides on political issues - siding with poor widows against rich scribes. It is simply a factual and historical error to say that Jesus was concerned only with individual sin and private piety. When you read the gospels' accounts of his last week in Jerusalem (and the rest of the gospels) in the light of what we know about 1st century Israel under Roman rule, Jesus' very political and economic critique of structural injustice and inequity becomes clear.
