Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Image of God

4.0 of 5 stars 4.00  ·  rating details  ·  4 ratings  ·  2 reviews
Scholars universally acknowledge the role that Christian belief played in the social movement engendered by Martin Luther King Jr. Yet few have actually delved into the complexity of King's theology itself. The centrality of one aspect of his theology in particular - imago Dei, the belief that human beings are made in God's image - has been surprisingly overlooked.

This book is written like a college textbook and is a good reminder of why I've never gone back to college.
It has long, meandering sentences filled with commas and clauses. It never uses one word when three or four will do. It falls in love with certain terms and uses them frequently: "theological anthropology." Or maybe it was "anthropological theology."
You find yourself reading certain sentences and being almost sure he already has said that. You're right.
Case in point, first from Page 175:
Excellent analysis of King's ideas. This book is a must read for King scholars, academics, and general audiences.
