Read à His Truth Is Marching On: John Lewis and the Power of Hope 109 #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER An intimate and revealing portrait of civil rights icon and longtime US congressman John Lewis linking his life to the painful uest for justice in America from the 1950s to the presentfrom the Pulitzer Prizewinning author of The Soul of AmericaNAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY COSMOPOLITANJohn Lewis who at age twenty five marched in Selma Alabama and was beaten on the Edmund Pettus Bridge was a visionary and a man of faith Drawing on decades of wide ranging interviews with Lewis Jon Meacham writes of how this great grandson of a slave and son of an Alabama tenant farmer was inspired by the Bible and his teachers in nonviolence Reverend James Lawson and Martin Luther King Jr to put his life on the line in the service of what Abraham Lincoln called the better angels of our nature From an early age Lewis learned that nonviolence was not only a tactic but a philosophy a biblical imperative and a transforming reality At the age of four Lewis ambitious to become a minister practiced by preaching to his familys chickens When his mother cooked one of the chickens the boy refused to eat ithis first act he wryly recalled of nonviolent protest Integral to Lewiss commitment to bettering the nation was his faith in humanity and in Godand an unshakable belief in the power of hopeMeacham calls Lewis as important to the founding of a modern and multiethnic twentieth and twenty first century America as Thomas Jefferson and James Madison and Samuel Adams were to the initial creation of the Republic itself in the eighteenth century A believer in the injunction that one should love one's neighbor as oneself Lewis was arguably a saint in our time risking limb and life to bear witness for the powerless in the face of the powerful In many ways he brought a still evolving nation closer to realizing its ideals and his story offers inspiration and illumination for Americans today who are working for social and political change. This is what I needed to read right now in this time of racial turmoil Meacham s ability to discuss Lewis s faith intertwined with an obvious deep understanding of scripture is straight forward and non preachy This is the first time I have had a sense of peace in months and remembering the wonderful people in the early movement felt like spending time with old friendsfriends I shed blood with in the 60s I still believe in the Beloved Community and it was nice to spend the time remembering why we fought for it
