The Fierce Urgency of Now
Fifty years ago, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., was martyred for his prophetic message and witness. Over the thirteen years of his public social ministry, he called our nation to self-reflection and action with regard to three urgent problems—racism, poverty, and war, which remain as urgent today as they did fifty years ago. This address explores King’s exercise of the prophetic and those problems from the vantage of political theology.
