The Measure of a Man

Front Cover
Christian Education Press, 1959 - 34 pages
Eloquent and passionate, reasoned and sensitive, this pair of meditations by the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., contains the theological roots of his political and social philosophy of nonviolent activism. Basic to Dr. King's philosophy is the belief that meditation and action are inseparable elements of life. We are each, he says, ''God's marvelous creation, crowned with glory and honor, '' And he challenges each of us to meditate upon and to accept the dimensions of a complete life -- the depth, breadth, and height of a life clearly and honestly examined and lived, a life that is the measure of a human being.
