So wrote Coretta Scott King. She continued: I believe it is because this book best explains the central element of Martin Luther King, Jr.s philosophy of nonviolence: His belief in a divine, loving presence that binds all life. That insight, luminously conveyed in this classic text, here presented in a new and attractive edition, hints at the personal transformation at the root of social justice: By reaching into and beyond ourselves and tapping the transcendent moral ethic of love, we shall overcome these evils. In these short meditative and sermonic pieces, some of them composed in jails and all of them crafted during the tumultuous years of the Civil Rights struggle, Dr. King articulated and espoused in a deeply personal compelling way his commitment to justice and to the intellectual, moral, and spiritual conversion that makes his work as much a blueprint today for Christian discipleship as it was then. Individual readers, as well as church groups and students will find in this work a challenging yet energizing vision of God and redemptive love.Read Less

Strength to Love
Great book. We often forget about this man's intimacy with Jesus. A great look into the heart of one of the greatest leaders and where he draws his strength. King led from a heart that was fixed on Jesus and his strength to love grew from there.
