In this provocative work, Walter Wink suggests that the injunctions of the 'Sermon on the Mount' which seem to counsel passivity in the face on injustice were actually deliberately mistranslated by Biblical scholars. Winks argues that Jesus actually offered a systematic and strategic third way of nonviolent resistance of particular relevance to today's political activist.
