A landmark collection of Martin Luther King Jr.’s best known homilies and sermons—with selections from Strength to Love.
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. 
Full Sermon List:
• A Tough Mind and a Tender Heart
• Transformed Nonconformist
• On Being a Good Neighbor
• Love in action
• Loving Your Enemies
• A Knock at Midnight
• The Man Who Was a Fool
• The Death of Evil Upon the Seashore
• Shattered Dreams
• Our God is Able
• Antidotes for Fear
• The Answer to a Perplexing Question
• Paul’s Letter to American Christians
• Pilgrimage to nonviolence
• The Drum Major Instinct
• The Three Dimensions of a Complete Life
