Howard Thurman: Essential Writings by Howard Thurman

  • Thurman's best contribution was his ability, before many other people were doing it in our culture, to bring together the inner life, the life of passion, the life of fire, with the external life, the life of politics. -- Martin E. Marty, University of Chicago


    Howard Thurman (1900-1981), minister, philosopher, civil rights activist, has been called one of the greatest spiritual resources of this nation. His encounters with Gandhi in India helped instill his commitment to nonviolence. His identification of Jesus as one of the disinherited helped shape the thinking of Martin Luther King, Jr., and his embrace of wisdom from other religious traditions emboldened interfaith cooperation and understanding. This edition compiles together some of his most important writings into one essential work.
