5.0 out of 5 stars Cross Cultural April 23 2002
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I have used this book in Leadership Training for years. Recently I used it at Gindiri College of Theology in Nigeria. The huge 250 pound student body president said it caused him to weep, thinking about repentance. This was one of the only books graduating senior received this year, because the cost of books is such a high % of their annual income.
In the US, white High School students have returned years later to say this small book changed their thinking and understanding of who Dr. King really was. Mine too. Thanks

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Dec 5 2005
By Jim Murrow - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Dr. King, as we all know, was a man of intelligence, persistence, devotion, and respect, and this book inspires all of those qualities in each of us. I have purchased this book for family members, and they have received its message with the same delight that I did. I highly suggest reading this or buying as a gift for a friend in need of a little inspiration.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enlightening and Refreshing Nov. 23 2004
By D. Stewart - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This writing was quite interesting. Dr. King as we all know was a great man and leader. In this writing he points out a great way to look at the world, and all human beings within this world. Throughout this writing he speaks of God and how God is the way. A very enlightening piece of reading.

4.0 out of 5 stars Small and Handy Aug. 7 2007
By J. Breneman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Small and slim, fits in the back of pants pockets just fine.

About 50-pages, with 10 or so pages in the middle solely having various photographs of King and followers.

I read it in about 15mins, taking my time.

Buy it used for the best deal. Paying full price for something so small that could probably be downloaded off the internet seems a bit much.

It is very thought-provoking, as all of King's work, and is worth reading. Would make a great gift for anyone.

I recommend "A Testament of Hope: The Essential Writings and Speeches of Martin Luther King, Jr." for a more complete work of Dr. King.

3.0 out of 5 stars a bit too short Feb. 21 2006
By Adam Weiss - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
King is as eloquent as always, and I knew this was a short book, but it was filled with a lot more pictures than I expected and it was more purely theological than connecting theology with his nonviolent philosophy. I'd go for something else if you want to read King.
