Concerned for a planet in ecological crisis and anchored in the urban struggles of de-industrial Detroit, this book offers an alternative reading of traditional Christology under the rubric of messianis. This category contests the canonical tradition of an individual messiah and reframes the Galilean movement of Jesus as a collective enterprise of living alternative to empire. Its 'little tradition' politics and parabolic arts serve as template for reading similar vernacular efforts across history, committed to countering imperial concentrations of Powers rooted in urban life and recovering an older species-memory of living more justly and sustainably, 'on the land.'
