KIRKUS REVIEW

Through this collection of sermons there is struck again and again the note that it is the obligation of Christians to love their enemies, and to pray for those who persecute them. Non-violent, passive resistance to the indignities and injustices imposed upon the Negro is the sober counsel of the Rev. Martin Luther King, their leader in the constant struggle for integration and their full rights as citizens. These sermons of Dr. King are earnest and moving, with insights into the meaning of the Bible which greatly illuminate the struggle of the Negro race for recognition and freedom, and relate their destiny to that of all of God's children. In fact, ommitting the references to the travail and aspirations of his own people they are sermons to speak to every man in his own condition before God, regardless of class or. Well constructed and graciously phrased, they truly communicate the Word of God as spoken in Jesus Christ. Compared to any collection of sermons they are well above the ordinary.
