This chapter discusses a meaningful and readable account of Martin Luther King Jr.'s career for the present generation. It tries to depict him in all of his humanness and not as the icon most know and consider him to be. It also depicts King's core religious beliefs as the key to his politics, links his greatness to his rhetoric, indicates the long-standing radicalism of his calling, and, above all, emphasizes his relevance to today's world.

Keywords:   Martin Luther King Jr., religious beliefs, politics, radicalism, relevance
