In this study Frederick L. Downing sets out to tell the story of the pilgrimage of faith that led martin Luther King, Jr., to Memphis and martyrdom. Drawing on his extensive researching primary documents from the Martin Luther King Center for Nonviolent Social Change in Atlanta and the king Collection at Boston University, Professor Downing argues that Dr. King understood himself first as “a Baptist preacher” whose religious faith was so real and “closely knit to life” that he could not separate his life from his faith. Religion fro Dr. King was life, Professor Downing insists, reinforcing his research and his conclusions with the psychosocial theories of Erik Erikson and the categories for tracing the development of religious faith proposed by James Fowler. Professor Downing’s moving portrait of Martin Luther King as homo religious in twentieth-century America will endure as a testimony to the transforming power of religion in human experience. Biographers have investigated and celebrated Dr. King’s activities and accomplishments as a leader and spokesman for civil rights, world peace, and the eradication of hunger and poverty. Others have attempted, as intellectual historians, to trace the development of Dr. King’s thought. These are worthy endeavors. Yet Dr. King was more than a politician and political strategists, more than a philosopher and intellectual reformer. He was a preacher and, in that self-defined role, a prophet on a pilgrimage of faith.

Reading Life: On Books, Memory, and Travel
By author: Michael Pearson
Product Code: P502
ISBN: 9780881465211
Availability: In stock
Price: $24.00
A unique blend of memoir, literary appreciation, and travel narrative, Reading Life is a series of interrelated essays tracking the relationship between books and experience, dramatizing and reflecting on how stories lead us into the world, and how we transform that engagement with the world back into personal narrative. A love story about books and travel, Reading Life is, by turns, comic and serious. Chapters shift in tone—from a lyrical quality akin to Adam Gopnik’s to a tongue-in-cheek humor reminiscent of Ian Frazier’s. The book transports the reader from the high desert landscape of Cather’s New Mexico and the rocky coastline of E. B. White’s Maine to the pilgrimage paths of Cervantes’s Spain and the hallucinogenic heat of Bowles’s Morocco. At the heart of Reading Life is the belief that stories are vital to our existence. Pearson invokes the same spirit that Tim O’Brien did in The Things They Carried when he said, “Stories are for joining the past to the future… Stories are for eternity, when memory is erased, when there is nothing to remember except the story.” Books, like travel, compel us to venture into new worlds, to renew our acquaintance with old ones, and, ultimately, to learn how to see. Books are both window and mirror, allowing a view of something deep in us and a glimpse of some distant truth beyond what is familiar and known. Willie Morris, former editor of Harper’s, said, “Michael Pearson is one of our nation’s finest memoirists.”
