Was Jesus a Socialist?
Socialism is making a comeback- and so is the idea that "Jesus was a Socialist."
In this timely new book, economist and historian 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.
Poll after poll shows that young Americans have a positive image of socialism. In fact, more than half say they would rather live in a socialist country that in a capitalist one. Reed's accessible and authoritative book explodes the myths that have lured in young people everywhere.
