This was an EXCELLENT book/recording. The way the reading is interspersed with Dr. King's speeches is excellent. The choice of the narrator was spot on. Some of the sound quality of the speeches is low but that is simply unavoidable due to the age and circumstances they were recorded in.
I was very impressed at how Dr. King's faith touched every area of his short life.
Just for everyone's information, I am not African American. But I think that every white person should listen to this to and learn the reality of discrimination that is not entirely removed from society today. (Not only against African Americans but many others too.)
I think every African American should listen to this to get a true picture of who Dr. King was in his own words and hear his depth of faith.
Anyone of would benefit from listening to this recording.
Although I have not had the opportunity to check all the facts in this book (and never will for that matter), anything I researched checked out.
Because of the subject matter it is "pro" Islam, and "pro" Mohammed.But not overbearing at all.
Definitely gives new meaning to "There but for fortune go you and I."
Enjoyed the style MOST of the time. Occasionally, especially toward the end, the amount of detail was overwhelming. Narration was good.
Would definitely recommend this book to anyone that wants to see the world through anothers eyes. And maybe, most importantly, to those who don't.
Although I don't completely agree with everything in this book, it is very thought provoking. Some people might be surprised by her mild profanity sprinkled through out, but I thought it was authentic and not gratuitous in anyway.
I would recommend it to anyone who doesn't mind being challenged to think outside their box. It definitely isn't for the faint of heart, extremely conservative or those who think they already know all the answers.
Although I had heard LOTS of people running this book down for various reasons, I thought it was excellent. The authors choice of characters for Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are original and extremely thought provoking.
His handling of good and evil, free will etc were also excellent. I would recommend it to any one.
The recording is done well and is easy to listen to.
