No Turning Back (COOL Lent: 2008)

I've been sent a review copy of a new book - "No Turning Back: My Summer with Daddy King", by Gurdon Brewster.

It is the story of an Episcopal seminarian from the north who spends the summer of 1961 as an intern at Ebeneezer Baptist Church where Martin Luther King Sr. was pastor and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was co-pastor as well as director of the SCLC civil rights group.

The review isn't finished yet but I'll heartily give it a two thumbs up for the insights it offers into the civil rights movement and a conscientious (white) person's immersion into the segregated south.
