Product Description

We know Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. as a social activist who changed America. But King's beginnings were as a preacher, and he preached with power throughout his life. In light of this, it is all the more remarkable that few have focused on his pulpit power, which reflected his religious commitments and shape the civil rights movement that he led. Mervyn Warren offers us a journey into the preaching of King, a homiletical biography exploring King's sermons, his use of language, his delivery and more. In this book we have a remarkable opportunity to gain new insight into all of King's life and work. Originally written as a dissertation and presented to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. by the author in 1964, this remarkable work has been uncovered, fully revised and updated, and is available for the first time to the general public.

Publisher's Description

We know Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. as a social activist who changed America. But King's beginnings were as a preacher, and he preached with power throughout his life. In light of this, it is all the more remarkable that few have focused on his "pulpit power," which reflected his religious commitments and shaped the civil rights movement that he led. Dr. Mervyn A. Warren offers us a journey into King's preaching in this homiletical biography exploring his sermons, use of language, delivery and more. In these pages we have a remarkable opportunity to gain new insight into all of King's life and work, includiing access to four of Dr. King's previously unpublished sermons. Now in paper, this book will be an invaluable resource to students and pastors alike who wish to emulate the power of King's preaching and the dedication of his faith. "A tremendous contribution to the growing body of King scholarship." Dr. Lewis Baldwin, professor of religious studies, Vanderbilt University
