  • Lost Acres

    Richard C. Williams

    (Shore Enterprizes, June 24, 2016)
    This book recalls life on a small family farm in Western Kentucky in the 1940s. It’s a way of life that was extraordinarily rich and fulfilling, but was also devilishly hard work. It’s truly rare today for a farm family to do all of the work described, however, farmers still grow corn, milk cows, and feed hogs, but they do so in a much more business-like way than back then. Wondering if current life is as satisfactory, come with the author as the old ways are re-created in this fascinating book.

  • Martin Luther King, Jr., and the Image of God

    Richard W. Wills

    Hardcover (Oxford University Press, May 14, 2009)
    Scholars universally acknowledge the role that Christian belief played in the social movement engendered by Martin Luther King Jr. Yet few have actually delved into the complexity of King's theology itself. The centrality of one aspect of his theology in particular - imago Dei, the belief that human beings are made in God's image - has been surprisingly overlooked.In this book, Richard W. Wills Sr. offers a comprehensive analysis of King's appeal for civil rights by investigating his understanding of imago Dei. Wills begins by tracing the evolution of this idea through the history of Christian thought, showing the intellectual sources King drew on in constructing his own beliefs. Wills then demonstrates how King employed this idea in his civil rights work. The belief that we are all made in God's image was crucial, Wills shows, to King's understanding of human nature and equality. While King shared with many of his black church forebears the view that humanity's creation by God was a powerful argument for the equality of all people, he also took the concept much further. For King, being made in God's image meant that human beings have not only the right but also the power to reshape society and to build a "beloved community" on earth. Though explicitly grounded in Christian faith, the doctrine of imago Dei provided King with a theological rationale that was capable of addressing the needs of the community well beyond the walls of churches.Wills's thorough reconsideration King's thought makes the case for his importance as a theologian. It convincingly demonstrates that the concept of imago Dei formed the heart of his theology and, in turn, that his theology was central to the unfolding of the civil rights movement.
