THE POLISHED KING

Living Words of Martin Luther King Jr.

Joseph Evans analyzes the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s preaching. King incorporated the “living word” and various rhetorical techniques in ways that helped people understand and find hope in his messages. Evans notes that James Baldwin—an accomplished writer and thinker—considered King to be a “Polished Preacher.” This book weaves Baldwin’s poetic and fiery words, passion for justice, and admiration of King’s oration into a detailed, thought-provoking examination of the rhythm of determination and transformative power in King’s speaking, writing, and faith.

TAKING APART BOOTSTRAP THEOLOGY

Gospel of Generosity and Justice

Author Terrell Carter unites scholarly critique with practical wisdom in this new book that exposes the racist and classist assumptions entangled in the rugged individualism of what he calls “bootstrap theology.” Dismantling both the impossible idiom of “pulling yourself up by your own bootstraps” and the social theory of Marx’s Protestant Work Ethic, Carter challenges the reader to advance a more faithful gospel, one that extends a spirit of generosity and a call to social justice for all God’s people.
