What better way to celebrate Black History Month than to learn more about Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.?
A new book by Paul Harvey is titled Martin Luther King: a religious life (published 2021). In this new biography, Harvey introduces readers to "the King of diverse religious and intellectual influences, of an increasingly radical cast of thought..." (from book summary).
The theme for this year's Black History Month is "Black resistance." Throughout U.S. history, Christian people and organizations have joined the movement to resist racism toward and oppression of Black people. Take note of these new books in our collection:
- The Gospel of Freedom: Black evangelicals and the Underground Railroad
- The Black Church: This is our story, this is our song
- Wait - is this Racist? A guide to becoming an anti-racist church
- How to Fight Racism: Courageous Christianity and the journey toward racial justice
