Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., a leader and visionary of the civil rights movement, was first and foremost a preacher. This unique collection features a selection of Dr. King's best sermons - some not heard since he first delivered them - recorded at Ebenezer Baptist Church, Dexter Avenue Baptist Church, and in other churches where he carried his ministry. They include "Rediscovering Lost Values," "A Knock at Midnight," "The American Dream," and "When Jesus Called a Man a Fool." Each is introduced by a distinguished member of today's spiritual community, including Rev. Wyatt Tee Walker, Dr. Joan Campbell, and Archbishop Desmond Tutu.

I can not recommend these sermons enough. For anyone who falls asleep at their church sermon on Sunday, these original recordings of sermons given by Martin Luther King, Jr. will snap you awake and stir you to action. His passionate call for nonviolence and for helping the less fortunate in society is a timeless message we all need to hear. The intelligence and preparation he poured into his sermons make them among the best speeches Ive ever heard. Thank God somebody was there to record them so we can still be moved by them today.

I simply can't describe the inspiration I receive listening to MLK's sermons (all the ones I've listened to so far were before he became nationally prominent). The passion, conviction and eloquence with which he unselfconsciously expresses himself is ineffable. Amazing amazing amazing.
