We Will Get to the Promised Land
Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Communal-Political Spirituality
Imprint: Wipf and Stock
"Lee deserves high praise for this comprehensive analysis of the spirituality of Martin Luther King, Jr. Since first generation immigrants rarely attend to African American history, the importance of this study cannot be over estimated."
~ Peter J. Paris, Elmer G. Homrighausen Professor Emeritus of Christian Social Ethics, Princeton Theological Seminary, from the Foreword
"An exceptional achievement. This book extends the King tradition into the twenty-first century and invites the reader to appreciate his insights in dialogue with the Dalai Lama and to apprehend his wisdom about the contemporary war on terror. A very creative and important contribution to King studies."
~ Robert M. Franklin, Visiting Scholar in Residence, Martin Luther King, Jr. Research and Education Institute, Stanford University; former President, Morehouse College
"Lee makes African communal-spiritual traditions normative for understanding Martin Luther King, Jr.'s spirituality. A bold and provocative new book--one that should attract much attention in academic and church circles. A particularly challenging read for King scholars."
~ Lewis V. Baldwin, Vanderbilt University; author of There is a Balm in Gilead: The Cultural Roots of Martin Luther King, Jr.
