The Pulpit Power of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


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 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 Mrs. Coretta King by the author in 1988, this remarkable work has been uncovered, fully revised and updated, and is available for the first time to the general public.
