The Book of Martin Luther King, Jr. in King James English: An Apostle of Jesus Christ And of Social Equality His Life And Times in the Language And Manner of the King James Bible

Front Cover
The Book Of Martin Luther King, Jr. seeks to honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by using the language of the very book that Dr. King himself cherish: The King James Bible.

The first of seven planned volumes, it is about the world Martin was born into-a world of fear and violence. And though Writers Digest calls it " a highly literate tribute to Dr. King one that deserves a place on every bookshelf " the author has been called "a traitor to his race " for writing about Dr. King in this manner.

Mr. Bevis answers by saying, "the truth is that we live in a society where it is fine for the majority to think of Charlton Heston-just an actor-as a Moses like leader, but where it is not OK to think of Dr. king-an ordained minister-as an apostle like Paul. There is a lot of hypocrisy here."

He adds, "Dr. King truly was an apostle of God. And the ultimate proof is that he obeyed Jesus, never gave up or sold out, and eventually lay down his life for his fellow man. No man in American history is more deserving of being written about in this way."
