Overview

The remarkable courage and deep conviction of Martin Luther King Jr. live on in this classic prophetic text, a veritable primer in the principles and practice of nonviolence. Despite nearly fifty years since its publication, Strength to Love reads as pertinently to our situation as it did in the midst of the civil rights movement. Yet Strength to Love is more than a blueprint of a movement; it is a template for personal authenticity in an age when vast social and economic change demand and depend on personal integrity. As King averred, "Only through an inner spiritual transformation do we gain the strength to fight vigorously the evils of the world in a humble and loving spirit." This brief classic holds the key to that transformation.

There was one passage that, in particular, spoke to the depths of my heart. Dr. King urged his listeners (readers) who, at the time, were black Southern Americans who were victims of segregation and racism, to not hate those who had oppressed them. As a white, southern Christian pastor, this truly spoke to my heart. How much we still can learn from this great man, nearly 40 years after his death. I would commend this to anyone.
