Today (Nov. 18) is the birthday of Howard Thurman, noted pastor and theologian.
To mark the occasion, we offer the following introductory reading guide to his most significant books.
We’ve ordered this list in the order that we think the books should be read, and offered a brief explanation of why each book was included. We’ve also included excerpts of most the books via Google Books.
Thurman was radically prescient in his description in this book of the inclusive nature of the Gospel of Jesus. The Search for Common Ground articulates a vision of community that follows from the inclusive way of Jesus.
