Overview

Martin Luther King, Jr.—-Spirit-led Prophet tells the compelling story of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr— pastor, theologian, scholar, orator, civil rights leader, martyr. Spirit-led Prophet chronicles King's activities illustrating his nonviolent faith and how he lived it out in his ministry. In the midst of a tumultuous public life, King prayed for guidance and depended upon God's spirit to lead him. Despite the cruelty and violence of the forces arrayed against the movement, King stressed the necessity to love one's enemies, to believe that unearned suffering is redemptive and to have faith in God's just purposes. Refusing to limit his mission to civil rights, he wrote and spoke passionately against the war in Vietnam and on behalf of the world's poor. He repeatedly returned to his call for the Beloved Community and the building of a just and peaceful social order.

King's influence continues to grow beyond his death with his vision of nonviolent liberation and the final reconciliation God is calling us to spreading around the world.
