Reviews - What do customers think about Howard Thurman: Essential Writings (Modern Spiritual Masters Series)?

Standing with those whose backs are against the wall  Feb 6, 2008
In what's arguably his best book, Jesus and the Disinherited, Howard Thurman asks what message Jesus has to give to those whose backs are against the wall. In his Introduction to this new compilation of Thurman's spiritual writings, editor Luther Smith points out (p. 28) that Jesus advises neither blaming the wall nor trying to flee, but instead to respond with love, thereby asserting autonomy over the situation. In a fundamental way, this is the heart of Thurman's thought and activism: liberating oneself, through love, to be fully human; liberating others, through love, to be fully human; and liberating God, through love, to be fully God.

It's a shame that Thurman isn't as well-known today as he was even a short quarter of a century ago. As a Christian pacifist, he influenced most of the leaders of the American Civil Rights Movement. As a college chaplain and teacher, he moved hundreds of students to reflect deeply on the moral life. As a popular and insightful preacher and author, he inspired thousands of listeners and readers to to take more seriously what it means to be a Christian. He anticipated both liberation theology and theologies of the oppressed.

The love ethic so central to Thurman's thought undergirds one of the most notable features of his teachings: its loving embrace of alternative religious perspectives. Thurman was convinced that there are universal truths, but that humans can only encounter them in particulars. We have no sub specie aeternitatus perspective. So God is discernible in particular modes of worship, particular doctrines, particular faith traditions. But no particular can encompass a universal. So while the universal is encountered in the particular, no particular has a monopoly on truth or revelation.

Smith is to be commended for reintroducing Thurman in this lovely compilation.
