“Christ as a labor leader, or the status of the Carpenter of Nazareth, is the ‘motif’ of a remarkable book – ‘Would Christ Belong to a Labor Union.’ Rev. Dr. Cortlandt Meyers of the Brooklyn Baptist church is the author. The writer has read the book with much interest. Dr. Meyers holds that if Christ were on earth today He would be a revolutionist of the most radical type, as He was before, standing for the rights of man and against everything that violates them even a hair’s breath.
Capital and labor are arrayed against each other in the book. Street car strikes, the closing down of mills and the terrible sufferings which the poor have to endure are graphically described. The book is a most interesting one.” – The Daily Times, Davenport, Iowa, 27 Feb 1900
