A Gift of Love

Sermons from Strength to Love and Other Preachings

by Martin Luther King (Author)MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR. (Author)Coretta Scott King (Foreword by)The Rev Dr Raphael G. Warnock (Foreword by)


The classic collection of sixteen sermons preached and compiled by Dr. King

As Dr. King prepared for the Birmingham campaign in early 1963, he drafted the final sermons for Strength to Love, a volume of his most best-known homilies. King had begun working on the sermons during a fortnight in jail in July 1962. While behind bars, he spent uninterrupted time preparing the drafts for works such as Loving Your Enemies and Shattered Dreams, and he continued to edit the volume after his release. A Gift of Love includes these classic sermons, along with two new preachings. Collectively they present King s fusion of Christian teachings and social consciousness, and promote his prescient vision of love as a social and political force for change."
