About the Author
When Howard Thurman spoke, he filled the entire room with compassion, truth, keen intellect, and joy.
To be in his presence was to experience the drama of life itself-with all its attending conflicts-and to be carried beyond these realities to the Reality of a gracious God whose will is life and wholeness.
