Item description for Martin Luther King, Jr., Spirit-Led Prophet by Richard L. Deats & Coretta Scott King...

Overview
Martin Luther King, Jr.-Spirit-led Prophet tells the compelling story of the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.-pastor, theologian, scholar, orator, civil rights leader, martyr. Spirit-led Prophet chronicles King's activities illustrating his nonviolent faith and how he lived it out in his ministry. In the midst of a tumultuous public life, King prayed for guidance and depended upon God's spirit to lead him. Despite the cruelty and violence of the forces arrayed against the movement, King stressed the necessity to love one's enemies, to believe that unearned suffering is redemptive and to have faith in God's just purposes. "Richard Deats has produced in his work an invaluable spiritual portrait of Martin Luther King, Jr. and the sources of his faith, courage, and willingness to offer his life to the nonviolent stuggle against violence, racial, and economic injustice. These teachings, so well revealed in this unique biography, have endured because they continue to offer hope and inspiration for all who would fulfill the Dream." - Correta Scott King

Publishers Description
Martin Luther King, Jr.---Spirit-led Prophet tells the compelling story of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr pastor, theologian, scholar, orator, civil rights leader, martyr. Spirit-led Prophet chronicles Kings activities illustrating his nonviolent faith and how he lived it out in his ministry. In the midst of a tumultuous public life, King prayed for guidance and depended upon Gods spirit to lead him. Despite the cruelty and violence of the forces arrayed against the movement, King stressed the necessity to love ones enemies, to believe that unearned suffering is redemptive and to have faith in Gods just purposes. Refusing to limit his mission to civil rights, he wrote and spoke passionately against the war in Vietnam and on behalf of the worlds poor. He repeatedly returned to his call for the Beloved Community and the building of a just and peaceful social order. Kings influence continues to grow beyond his death with his vision of nonviolent liberation and the final reconciliation God is calling us to spreading around the world.

Reviews - What do customers think about Martin Luther King: Spirit-Led Prophet?

A wonderful introduction to King's life and thought  Feb 21, 2009
Having read dozens of books on King and the civil rights movement, I wondered what Deats might have to offer. When I finished it I started reading it again, a chapter at a time in order to give my attention to thinking about what it had to say to my own efforts to contribute to social change. It is both an exceptionally useful source of reflection for experienced activists, and a wonderful introduction to King's life and thought.
