    The "Letter"

    To understand a letter you found in your attic you would need to know about the recipient, the author, and the historical context.

    That is what this book does for the most important Christian letter written since the canon of the Christian scriptures closed. The book exegets and comments on the "Letter", teaching about its Zeigeist along the way.

    The "take away" from this book is that a moderate stance towards injustice hinders its demise. It challenges one to think about one's stance towards injustice.

    I really like this book.  I'm almost done.  Love the structure and analysis of the work.  This was such an important time and an important movement in world history and the author covers it well.

    Worth Reading

    The author breaks down the letter Dr King wrote in light of what had happened and what was happening with the Civil Rights Movement during the time of the letters writing. Along the way you also learn more about Dr King himself. The letter is at the end of the book in its entirety and it is a masterpiece of a wonderful mind and man. As a white woman who was too young at the time of the Civil Rights Movement to participate I found this book very informative and also beyond sad that we humans can treat each other so badly.

    Bad

    More lies and plagarism from a man intent on causing trouble than promoting the 'harmony'he claimed to be doing.
