"We've got some difficult days ahead," civil rights activist Martin Luther King, Jr., told a crowd gathered at Memphis's Clayborn Temple on April 3, 1968. "But it really doesn't matter to me now because I've been to the mountaintop. . . . And I've seen the promised land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight that we as a people will get to the promised land." These prohetic words, uttered the day before his assassination, challenged those he left behind to see that his "promised land" of racial equality became a reality; a reality to which King devoted the last twelve years of his life. These words and other are commemorated here in the only major one-volume collection of this seminal twentieth-century American prophet's writings, speeches, interviews, and autobiographical reflections. A Testament of Hope contains Martin Luther King, Jr.'s essential thoughts on nonviolence, social policy, integration, black nationalism, the ethics of love and hope, and more.

Globalisierung und Migration können zu interkulturellen Spannungen führen. Ist Kunst in der Lage, eine Brücke zwischen den Kulturen zu schlagen? Und wenn ja - auf welche Weise? Ausgehend von diesen Fragen beleuchtet Jürg Martin Meili Gehalt und Wirkung von Kunst im Hinblick auf ihren gesellschaftspolitischen Einfluss. Dazu werden u.a. Texte von Bürgerrechtlern wie Martin Luther King jr. und Malcolm X, Musikern wie Miles Davis, Chuck Berry und 2Pac sowie Philosophen wie John Dewey und Richard Rorty aus unterschiedlichen disziplinären Perspektiven (Philosophie, Soziologie, Geschichte sowie Anglistik/Afro-Amerikanistik) untersucht.

The radical message of Jesus is that there is only one alternative to the common method of confronting violence with more violence. The Only Alternative: Christian Nonviolent Peacemakers in America explores the spiritually active practice of compassionate nonviolence. Here is a journey through the lives of seven courageous American peacemakers who have embodied Christian nonviolence and dedicated their lives to addressing the suffering caused by racial discrimination, slavery, poverty, militarism, nuclear weapons, prisons, environmental degradation, and the psychology of fear and hatred. Here are highlights from the inspirational ideas and actions of Martin Luther King Jr., Dorothy Day, Thomas Merton, Rufus Jones, Thomas Kelly, Jim Douglass, and Kathy Kelly. They remind us that to be Christian is to use the power of love to transform spiritual, economic, and social violence. The great turning from violence to nonviolence is the story of Christianity in America. There has never been a more urgent time for this revolutionary teaching to be heard, understood, and lived. "It is no longer a choice, my friends, between violence and nonviolence. It is either nonviolence or nonexistence . . ." --Martin Luther King Jr. Human beings are now facing the stark choice between survival and destruction amid myriad forms of violence. The nonviolent peacemakers within this book can inspire the peacemaker within each of us to cultivate a direct relationship with God and love through contemplation, meditation, writing, and compassionate action based in the life and teachings of Jesus.

This book deals with the social gospel and one of its leading proponents in twentieth century Australia, the Anglican bishop of Armidale, New South Wales, from 1929 to 1964, John Moyes. It is an investigation and assessment of the career of Bishop Moyes as a study in Christian social engagement. It concerns his vision for the role of the church in society and his contribution to that effect. It is not a biography of John Moyes. Neither is it an exhaustive history of the social gospel movement in Australia or anywhere else, although they both feature prominently throughout. Bishop Moyes was a highly articulate public debater who participated in several of the critical episodes in Australian history during the twentieth century. The reader will find within the pages of this book discussion of highly contentious issues such as the attempt to ban the Communist Party of Australia in 1950 and 1951, the decision to commit Australian troops to the Vietnam War in 1965, and the Christian response to state-legitimised violence. Moyes is placed in context with some of the most notable Christian spokespeople on social and political issues in the twentieth century, such as Walter Rauschenbusch, Ernest Burgmann, William Temple, George Bell, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Reinhold Niebuhr, Martin Luther King Jr., and André Trocmé. It is argued here that John Moyes made intelligent, prescient, and compassionate contributions to many of the issues to which he turned his mind, but that, like most others before or since, he was unable to find a solution to the theological and moral challenges raised by the perceived threat to Australia’s sovereignty during World War II. This book challenges the view that when national sovereignty is threatened, the Christian response must be to support the government’s call to war.

Contrary to popular belief, the biblical prophets do far more than predict the future. They speak truth to power, they tell the truth about the uncomfortable past, they indict empty religiosity, they advocate for poor people and working people while seeking justice—all at tremendous risk to themselves. In Walking in the Prophetic Tradition Jason Bembry argues that the prophets have too often been domesticated by cultural impulses that reduce the prophetic message to prediction about Jesus or the end times. This book highlights themes addressed by the Old Testament prophets and connects each theme to modern people who exemplify passion for those same ideals. In this sense the prophetic tradition comes to life in the lived testimony of Martin Luther King Jr., Dorothy Day, Myles Horton, César Chávez, and Cornel West—moderns who stand courageously in this tradition. This book is a guide for all who seek a fuller understanding of the Old Testament prophets and who want to continue their work in the present.

Schwarze Magie und verschwundene Kinder vor der Kulisse des geheimnisvollen Haiti Es ist ein Auftrag, den Privatdetektiv Max Mingus nicht ablehnen kann: Zehn Millionen Dollar bietet ihm der Milliardär Allain Carver, wenn Max dessen Sohn findet. Von dem kleinen Charlie fehlt seit über drei Jahren jede Spur, und er ist nicht das einzige Kind, das auf Haiti verschwunden ist. In dem Land des Voodoo und der schwarzen Magie kursieren zahllose Geschichten über die mythische Figur des Mr. Clarinet, der seit dem 18. Jahrhundert Kinder auf der Insel stehlen soll. Doch die Wahrheit ist weit schockierender als die Legende – und die Gefahr zu kennen, heißt nicht, dass man den Morgen erleben wird ...
