Beacon Press to Republish Out-of-print MLK Books


Beacon Press has come to an agreement with the heirs of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to republish four out-of-print books by the clergyman and civil rights leader, including “Strength to Love,” a collection of his most eloquent and inspiring essays tying the message of Jesus to the struggle for civil rights, as in the essay “Loving Your Enemies,” where King says:

“Far from being the pious injunction of a Utopian dreamer, the command to love one’s enemies is an absolute necessity for survival.”
