Howard Thurman takes us to the wilderness, the crossroads, the garden. With Jesus, we face the challenges: Bread. Privilege. Power. Crossroads. Death. A powerful series of five sermons, with readings and meditations, from a teacher, poet, mystic, scholar and theologian who helped to shape the active and courageous nonviolence of the civil rights movement.
