Item description for Never Alone: Prayers Of Martin Luther King Jr by Lewis V. Baldwin...
Overview * The only collection of prayers by Martin Luther King, Jr. * Beautiful, hardcover, gift edition
Publishers Description Drawing on personal prayers that Martin Luther King Jr. recited as a seminarian and graduate student, preacher, pastor, and then civil rights leader, award-winning historian Lewis Baldwin shows how King turned to prayer and meditation for his own spiritual nourishment, for his ministry, and for inspiring and affirming people in a crusade for social justice. In doing so, he illumines how King's prayer life and reflections offer not only clues to the man but also keys to our own cultivation of core human values.
"Lewis Baldwin is superbly qualified to give to us a view of the prayer life of Martin Luther King, the largely unknown, mighty force that propelled this man who led in giving America the opening to become a democracy." Gardner C. Taylor Pastor Emeritus, Concord Baptist Church of Christ, Brooklyn
"At last, I am so pleased to read a book that specifically zeroes in on Dr. King's reservoir of power drawn directly from the prayer tradition of black people.... To a great extent, the recorded history of the civil rights movement has ignored or failed to appreciate that Dr. King's practice of prayer, both personal and corporate, was in fact a historic river of living hope that quite naturally connected with people from every walk of life in a way that could not have happended without this wellspring of black soulful prayer tradition."Marold A. Carter Pastor, New Shiloh Baptist Church, Baltimore
