"An important work! No interpreter has more comprehensively documented than Baldwin how King's complex thought and personality provide the central fulcrum upon which contemporary African-American theological and ethical thought turns."
--Gayraud S. Wilmore
Editor, Journal of the ITC
"A difficult objective has been brilliantly achieved here. With the appearance of his work on Martin Luther King Jr. Baldwin has earned a place among the most creative students of African-American religions, social and intellectual history."
