"A Great Resource!"
April 16th, the year is 1963. Birmingham, Alabama, has had a spring of nonviolent protests known as the Birmingham Campaign, seeking to draw attention to the segregation against blacks by the city government and downtown retailers. The organizers longed to create a nonviolent tension so severe that the powers that be would be forced to address the rampant racism head on. Recently arrested was Martin Luther King, Jr.... It is there in that jail cell that he writes this letter; on the margins of a newspaper he pens this defense of nonviolence against segregation.

"A Terrible Collection Overall -- Poorly Done"

"I have a dream today." On August 28, 1963, Martin Luther King spoke these words as he addressed a crowd of more than 200,000 civil rights protesters gathered at The Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC. Two months earlier, President John Kennedy had sent a civil rights bill to Congress, but it was struck down. Although Kennedy was concerned about the possibility of widespread violence during this protest, he realized he was powerless to stop it and embraced the movement instead.
"Fills My Heart"
First published in 1525, Martin Luther's Bondage of the Will is acknowledged by theologians as one of the great masterpieces of the Reformation. It is Luther response to Desiderius Erasmus' Diatribe on Free Will, written in his direct and unique style, combining deep spirituality with humor. Luther writes powerfully about man's depravity and God's sovereignty. The crucial issue for Luther concerned what ability free will has, and to what degree it is subject to God's sovereignty.

In keinem anderen biblischen Buch entfaltet sich Luthers Übersetzerkunst so meisterhaft wie in den Psalmen. Hier wird die Poesie des hebräischen Originals zu deutscher Dichtung. Luther hat den Psalter besonders geschätzt. Er nennt ihn eine "kleine Biblia", die in sich die "Summa" der ganzen Bibel enthält. Dies kommt in der Einspielung mit Rufus Beck unmittelbar zur Geltung. Er versteht es wie kaum ein anderer, die ganze Spannbreite von Leid und Freude zum Ausdruck zu bringen.
