On August 28, 1963, Martin Luther King Jr. delivered the unforgettable “I Have a Dream” speech. Sixty years later, two men have a dream of their own: to share the life and teachings of King for the good of the church and the world.
This episode of The Russell Moore Show features one of those men, professor Matthew Daniels. A global human rights activist and founder of the nonprofit organization Good of All, Daniels is half of the team that created Share the Dream, a Bible study based on the life, teachings, and biblical principles of King. In collaboration with Harper Christian Resources and Urban Ministries, the video sessions of the study are cohosted by Daniels and Chris Broussard, an award-winning journalist and broadcaster for FOX Sports 1 and FOX Sports Radio and the founder and president of The K.I.N.G. Movement.
This discussion considers countercultural engagement, social progress, and civil rights. Daniels and Moore talk about King’s legacy, the current state of racial divides in the church, and how the history of polarization influences where we are today. Their conversation covers online extremism, evangelical emphases on personal piety over communal justice, and what obedience to Christ looks like in practical terms.
Tune in for an episode that underscores the value of partnerships and the persistent merit of King’s dream.
