This is a reproduction of King's 1967 Massey Lectures, an annual series presented by the CBC. The first four lectures seem to be read by King in a recording studio. His delivery is slow, and his style is ponderous; these four lectures do not present the King that most of us are familiar with. However, these lectures presents his critique of U.S. politics and are historically significant for his discussion of his opposition to the Vietnam War. The fifth lecture is a 1967 Christmas Eve sermon, which presents King at his rhetorical best, preaching a powerful sermon about peace. This audiobook is good, but not as good as A KNOCK AT MIDNIGHT, a collection of King's sermons on audiocassette. M.L.C. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 02]
