A Knock at Midnight: Inspiration from the Great Sermons of Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, was first a preacher, and then an advocate for civil rights. This is a selection of King's most spiritual words, the sermons he delivered from his pulpit at Ebenezer and Dexter Avenue Baptist Church and in churches around the country.

Many of the sermons are new versions, uncovered by Clayborne Carson at The King Paper Project at Stanford University. They include moving meditations on a variety of universal topics, including rediscovering lost values, the redemptive power of love, and making moral advancement as much a part of our lives as technological advancement. The emphasis is on individual improvement and growth that can result in mountain-moving strength.

In "Loving Your Enemies" Dr. King tells the story of the man who berated Abraham Lincoln publicly before his election...and how Lincoln made him Secretary of War once he became President despite. When Lincoln died, that same man was his biggest supporter.

In "The Three Dimensions of a Life" Dr. King warns not to try to be a Cadillac if you're really a Ford. If you do, you won't be able to get into those small parking spaces that a Cadillac will never get into.

Each sermon will include an introduction from one of the great ministers and theologians of the world, reflecting on the present day relevance of King's words and remembrances of Dr. King's delivery of the sermons.

Synopsis:

With fiery words of wisdom and a passion for justice, Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr., inspired people everywhere to perform extraordinary acts of courage and ignited one of the most influential movements of the twentieth century. This is the definitive collection of eleven of his most powerful sermons, from his earliest known audio recording to his last sermon, delivered days before his assassination. With introductions by renowned theologians and ministers including Reverend Billy Graham and Archbishop Desmond Tutu, filled with moving personal reflections and firsthand accounts of the events surrounding each sermon, A KNOCK AT MIDNIGHT is Dr. King's living voice today — an irresistible call that resonates and inspires the greatness in us all.

Synopsis:

Warner Books, in conjunction with Intellectual Properties Management, Inc., presents an extraordinary collection of sermons by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.-many never before published-along with introductions an documentary of the world's leading ministers and theologians.
