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.

Editorial Reviews

A trim volume by King himself, this elegant essay -- actually two complementary pieces -- synthesizes the core elements of his non-violent philosophy. Economically, forcefully, King explains the theological basis for his social and political activism.
