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.
