n Missionalia : Southern African Journal of Mission Studies - Observations on the spirituality of Martin Luther King Jr, Desmond Mpiulio Tutu and Barack Hussein Obama

Volume 37, Issue 3
  • ISSN : 0256-9507



The spiritualities of Dr Martin Luther King, Jr, Archbishop Desmond Mpiulio Tutu and President Barack Hussein Obama are characterised by a deep personal commitment to Jesus Christ.

In terms of this understanding, God's care includes both the spiritual and social well-being of humanity. To all three, relations between religion and the state and between people of different faiths, appear to be natural extensions of their spiritual commitment and constitute issues that need attention.
