Discovering Howard Thurman as Educator, Activist, Guide, and Prophet
  • By Gregory C. Ellison II

Product Description

Howard Thurman was famously known as one of the towering giants of American religion in the twentieth century. His writings have influenced some of the most important religious and political figures of the last century, from Martin Luther King to Barack Obama. Theologians such as James Cone and Cornel West regularly signal their indebtedness to him. He was a mystic, a preacher, an educator, a theologian, and much more. It is impossible to understand the African American church today without an appreciation for his contributions.

And yet, while Thurman's name is often recognized, his seminal ideas have not received the attention they deserve. In this volume, internationally known leaders like Marian Wright Edelman, Parker Palmer, and Barbara Brown Taylor invite the reader into creative engagement with Thurman's writings. Anchored in the Current illuminates how Thurman's life and wisdom lead these influential names on the ancient quest to connect with the Ultimate, all while discovering the contemporary need to seek racial justice and sharpening the minds and faith of those who come after us. Readers will find important and enduring answers in the works of this indispensable prophet and teacher.

Contributors include: Barbara Brown Taylor, Patrick Clayborn, Elesa Commerse, Martin Doblmeier, Marian Wright Edelman, Gregory C. Ellison II, Mari Evans, Walter Earl Fluker, Stephen Lewis, Parker J. Palmer, Luke A. Powery, Liza J. Rankow, Tyler Sit, Luther E. Smith, Jr., Shively T. J. Smith, Matthew Wesley Williams, and Starsky Wilson.
