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.
