The story of Jesus' crucifixion just outside Jerusalem, is at the heart of Christian beliefs, and is one that very many will know. Many will also know of Barabbas, a robber and murderer who, just before the feast of Passover, was given pardon due to tradition, and was released instead of Jesus, an innocent man. In this book, James Dimbleby examines this action, the actions of those around Jesus (namely his disciples), and the norms of today's society. Criticising our lack of respect for God's creations and the planet we live on, this book looks at modern attitudes, and the changes society across nations has gone through.
In Shouting for Barabbas, James Dimbleby asks questions for our time and culture, and whether or not, today, we ourselves would shout for Barabbas.
