This volume explores the common ground between Marxism and Christianity. It argues that Marxism shares in good measure both the content and functions of Christianity and does so because it inherits it from Christianity.

It sets out to show that Marxism, no less than Christianity, is subject to the historical relativity that affects all ideologies.
