Now, inHard Questions, Heart Answers, she has collected the best of her inspiring sermons and speeches; in words ringing with wisdom and compassion, she addresses the pressing problems facing America in the s. Like her father before her, Reverend King believes that a good sermon or speech can fundamentally alter the way listeners understand their world and their place in it. With this goal in mind, the first part ofHard Questions, Heart Answersintends to "disturb the comfortable"--to stir people from their complacency and remind them that each human life is a precious gift.
Tackling such controversial subjects as our disaffected youth, gun control, and the death penalty, Reverend King argues forcefully that, however "comfortable" America may seem, it has yet to confront its spiritual decay, its deep-rooted racism, and its thirst for violence.
Hard Questions, Heart Answers
Reverend King believes that ignoring our country's problems not only makes them worse but also produces a troubled population in desperate need of solace and spiritual nourishment. In the second part of the collection, "Comforting the Disturbed," she speaks eloquently to this hunger, calling on the church to rediscover its helping and healing mission, and urges African American men to become positive role models for future generations. Most especially, she encourages each of us to put aside our differences and find constructive "heart" answers to the toughest of today's "hard" questions.
Using experiences and lessons from her own life, Reverend King vigorously challenges us to look beyond our own concerns and help others strive for a better life. A Murder Victims Perspective. Real Relevant and Reachable. King received her law degree and masters in divinity from Emory University.
