Ministry Today – Serving and empowering church leaders

Martin Luther King Jr.'s Legacy

Martin Luther King Jr. Day was celebrated nationwide yesterday, when my good friend, Bishop Harry R. Jackson Jr., wrote an outstanding article on the legacy of the civil rights leader and preacher. Click here to read and comment on Bishop Jackson's column.

Bishop Jackson is the guest editor of the January-February issue of Ministry Today, now available.

With the theme of social transformation, the issue coincides with the political season, which many are saying is the most important presidential election of our lifetime.

Because the primary season leading up to the presidential election is upon us, I wanted an issue on political activism. But Bishop Jackson exceeded expectations. He invited other outstanding authors such as Chuck Colson, David Barton and Tony Perkins to write, and the end result is something much more powerful—an issue on social transformation, which involves being involved politically. Read it and be transformed, so you can in turn transform society.

You can read my "A Call to the Church For Social Transformation" introductory article about Bishop Jackson in the magazine's latest issue by clicking here.
