Thinking about King the Preacher and Boston Personalist Philosopher

Here is one of my three or four published defenses of Dr. King, or more specifically, as Richard Lischer describes him, the "Preacher King." And even more to the point, I prefer the Philosopher King, the Boston Personalist (Methodist-influenced) thinker. He does not need my affirmation, and I am from a different theological and religious tradition, but I share some common ground with him.
