BOOKS FOR THE THOUGHTFUL CONSERVATIVE
Was Jesus a Socialist?
Socialism is making a comeback—and so is the idea that “Jesus was a socialist.”
In this timely new book, Foundation for Economic Education president emeritus Lawrence W. Reed shows it is pure fantasy to believe that Jesus wanted earthly governments to redistribute wealth, centrally plan the economy, or impose welfare states.
Was Jesus a Socialist? expands on Reed’s immensely popular video for Prager University, which has attracted more than four million views online.
“A timely, lively, learned and well-argued masterpiece that deftly demolishes the claims that Jesus was at heart a Marxist.”
“What is the true defining characteristic of socialism? As Larry Reed shows, it is not compassion but coercion. . . . It is hard to find any argument for coercive force in Jesus’s teachings.”
—Daniel Hannan, bestselling author of Inventing Freedom and The New Road to Serfdom, from the foreword
