Through Reverend Martin Luther King Jr.'s words and Bible verses, kids will discover that Dr. King's Christian faith was the foundation for his activism and that God calls us to stand up for justice and love. This illustrated children's devotional will inspire the next generation with the passion of Dr. King, America's greatest Black leader, and equip them to make a difference for God, both today and tomorrow.

Through Dr. King's timeless words, children ages 8 to 12 will be challenged and inspired to

  • "drive out darkness" with light and love;
  • go to the Bible for the truth about evil, love, identity, and responsibility;
  • respect the Creator-given human dignity in everyone;
  • build relationships across boundaries and spread kindness in all communities; and
  • stand for God's truth about themselves and others.

This 60-day devotional for older children includes

  • a short biography of Dr. King that focuses on his belief in God's Word as the basis of his activism;
  • 60 devotions written just for kids, each featuring Scripture, a quote from Dr. King, and a challenge to live out the truth;
  • inspiring stories of young participants of the civil rights movement of the 1950s and 1960s; and
  • a presentation page for commemorating gifting occasions and a source list for further exploration.

Today's children are passionate about social justice and want to be change makers. This devotional shows kids that following Christ is an essential element of the fight for justice and empowers them to actively live out their faith.

"If we are to go forward, if we are to make this a better world in which to live, we've got to go back. . . . We've got to go back and rediscover the principle that there is a God behind the process." --Martin Luther King Jr.
