The Great World House, Lee's second study on Martin Luther King, Jr., explores the possibilities of King's ethics, based on his "great world house" concept, as a resource for constructive global ethics. It continues a conversation initiated in Lee's previous book We Will Get to the Promised Land: Martin Luther King, Jr.'s Communal-Political Spirituality, taking the theme of communal-political dynamics to a global context. Seminarians, scholars, professors, and those interested in research on Martin Luther King, Jr. will benefit from this valuable analysis.
