Why nonviolence matters

A new book in Facets: brief, brilliant treatments of vital aspects of faith and life. Reviving a publishing initiative and innovative format from Fortress Press's early days, we proudly re-introduce Facets, a series that answers contemporary calls for bold thinking, clear ideas, and words that succinctly go to the heart of the religious and moral quest. Facets offers gems of religious writing from leaders who address today's more important or pressing questions-biblical, theological, and moral. Each book, offered at an economical price, presents a special angle that uniquely illumines an area or issue.

Eloquent and passionate, reasoned and sensitive, this pair of meditations by the revered civil-rights leader contains the theological roots of his political and social philosophy of nonviolent activism.

About the Author:
Martin Luther King Jr. was President of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference and co-pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church, Atlanta, Georgia. He received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964.

This is the kind of book you'll want to have a copy of just in case. There's a great chance you'll want to read it all over again in a few year's time. Thumbs up!

I wasn't impressed with this book but I do feel like I need to read it again to really grasp the point of it all. It is a very quick read. I read at a moderate pace and it couldn't have taken me more than 40 mins to read it.

This book was absolutely brilliant. Martin Luther King, Jr. offers of the best definitions for what makes a man and how humans should live I have ever read. Highly recommended.
