    1. Howard Thurman was a philosopher, theologian, and educator whose writings influenced many civil rights leaders, notably Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. I bought this first edition in 1963, little knowing that its writer was a wise man and a very unusual Baptist - the kind who studied philosophy under a Quaker mystic and went on to found a multi-cultural church. It's phrased with deceptive simplicity and eloquence but its insights reward careful study. I didn't have the patience for it when I was you [...]


    2. I was really excited about this book. Christian spirituality is by and large predominantly white, so I was excited to delve into spiritual disciplines through the lens of someone who encounters them while struggling with racial injustice. I enjoyed his thoughts on nonviolence and there seems to be a good amount of wisdom here, but the language was so dense that there were large portions that I just couldn't follow.


    3. Maybe an extended period of idleness is affecting my reading ability, but I found Thurman's style somewhat obtuse at times. Granted, he was writing in the early 60's, and so when he references current events I have to remember my recent history. However, the final chapter, on Reconciliation, had some very good material on non-violence that will be worth a second read.



    4. Absolute thought provoking, the chapters on Suffering, Prayer, and Reconciliation were amazing, I will search out further titles by this gentleman whose was one of Martin Luther King Jr.'s mentors.
