A Strange Freedom: The Best of Howard Thurman on Religious Experience and Public Life.

A Strange Freedom: The Best of Howard Thurman on Religious Experience and Public Life Howard Thurman (Walter Earl Fluker, Catherine Tumber, eds.)

* Howard Thurman was one of the great theologians and preachers of the 20th century, yet even to many who unknowingly follow in his footsteps he remains off the radar. This "best of" compilation might help rectify that omission and serve as an introduction to a man called "pastor to the civil rights movement." For Thurman, both the meaning of life and the soul of America can be found in religious faith, and this collection of writings--many of them previously published in other forms--acts almost as a spiritual journal of a lifelong journey of faith.
