In We Will Get to the Promised Land, Lee explores the entire scope of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s spirituality, tracing its roots to African communal religious traditions and African Americans' fight for racial justice. He presents communal-political spirituality as constituting the heart of King's multifaceted spirituality. Lee reinterprets King's personal journey, theology, and ethics, as well as the Civil Rights Movement, in light of this communal-political spirituality, while assessing its ongoing importance for the common life in the twenty-first century, with particular attention to the war on terror and interreligious ecumenism. ""Lee deserves high praise for this comprehensive analysis of the spirituality of Martin Luther King, Jr. Since first generation immigrants rarely attend to African American history, the importance of this study cannot be over estimated."" Peter J. Paris, Elmer G. Homrighausen Professor Emeritus of Christian Social Ethics, Princeton Theological Seminary, from the Foreword ""An exceptional achievement. This book extends the King tradition into the twenty-first century and invites the reader to appreciate his insights in dialogue with the Dalai Lama and to apprehend his wisdom about the contemporary war on terror. A very creative and important contribution to King studies."" Robert M. Franklin, Visiting Scholar in Residence, Martin Luther King, Jr. Research and Education Institute, Stanford University; former President, Morehouse College ""Lee makes African communal-spiritual traditions normative for understanding Martin Luther King, Jr.'s spirituality. A bold and provocative new book--one that should attract much attention in academic and church circles. A particularly challenging read for King scholars."" Lewis V. Baldwin, Vanderbilt University; author of There is a Balm in Gilead: The Cultural Roots of Martin Luther King, Jr. Hak Joon Lee is the Lewis B. Smedes Professor of Christian Ethics at Fuller Theological Seminary. His research focuses on covenant, public theology, global ethics, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Asian American theology and ethics. Some of his other books include Covenant and Communication: A Christian Moral Conversation with Jurgen Habermas; The Great World House: Martin Luther King, Jr. and Global Ethics; and Shaping Public Theology: Selections from the Writings of Max L. Stackhouse. Lee is an ordained Minister of Word and Sacrament in the Presbyterian Church (USA), and he lives with his wife and two sons in Pasadena, CA.
