Course Description:

Few historical figures are more revered than the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. In this course, students will explore his tenacity, his thoughts, his character, his use of theology, his character, and his advocacy for social and racial justice.

How This Course Benefits Students:

Students will know that that although Dr. King had so many things going for him, being a pastor and national leader, that as a man he still had some inner conflicts and personal flaws. In spite of all, he did succeed.

Why This Course Is Important:

Students are confronted, based on Dr. King’s experiences, with the realities of living in a fallen world where Christians learn from Jesus’ response to adversity, insult, and persecution. Dr. King and his movement is called to imitate God’s example of preaching the gospel in a hostile environment.
