Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Moldovan, whose academic background or affiliations are not noted, uses a contextual oral history approach to explicate the preaching and speeches, as well as the philosophy and life, of Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. The volume is primarily based on the undocumented stories of friends, churchgoers, and others from all stages in King's life who personally knew him, or simply heard his speeches and were affected or influenced by them. The author's central argument is that the social preachings of King can be seen as a vital example for Christian preachers today. Lacks a subject index. Annotation c.
