#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELER - An intimate and revealing portrait of civil rights icon and longtime U.S. congressman John Lewis, linking his life to the painful quest for justice in America from the 1950s to the present--from the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Soul of America


John Lewis, who at age twenty-five marched in Selma, Alabama, and was beaten on the Edmund Pettus Bridge, was a visionary and a man of faith. Drawing on decades of wide-ranging interviews with Lewis, Jon Meacham writes of how this great-grandson of a slave and son of an Alabama tenant farmer was inspired by the Bible and his teachers in nonviolence, Reverend James Lawson and Martin Luther King, Jr., to put his life on the line in the service of what Abraham Lincoln called the better angels of our nature. From an early age, Lewis learned that nonviolence was not only a tactic but a philosophy, a biblical imperative, and a transforming reality. At the age of four, Lewis, ambitious to become a minister, practiced by preaching to his family's chickens. When his mother cooked one of the chickens, the boy refused to eat it--his first act, he wryly recalled, of nonviolent protest. Integral to Lewis's Read More chevron_right

   This is large print - be warned
This is a large print, which is not mentioned in the description in the Amazon mobile app. Very difficult to read.
   Excellent Reading
I wanted to know the John Lewis life story about. I learned a lot about the black struggle for equality.
   You must read this book!
Compelling is read by : Meacham is a wonderful writer and John Lewis'story is one that all Americans should read.
   Light in the Darkness
In the dark times we face, John Lewis still offers hope, we were blessed to have him. Hope will always succeed.
   Great book about an incredible man
While I grew up in the 1960s and was very supportive of the civil rights movement, I was unaware of all the activities and events that John Lewis was so heavily involved in and in fact, led.
   All persons residing in America should read!
Good reading! Must have literature for understanding the freedom and Voter Rights Movement in the 1960s.
   Amazing man, Giant!
Having more time to read has allowed us to spend time with good books. Had no idea of the difficult life he had and overcame and showed others to continue in peace and love. This was truly an eye opener for someone who grew up in the South.
   Not exactly a biography
I love Jon Meacham's writing style and always look forward to his books. I was a little disappointed with this film, as I thought it would be a biography of John Lewis. It is a very detailed account of the civil rights movement from 1968 to 1968. I hoped for more about John Lewis's life through his time in Congress. A second book to complete the story will probably come next!
   This is a Stunning Book
This is what I needed to read today in this time of racial turmoil. Lewis's ability to discuss Meacham's faith directly from, with an obvious deep understanding of the Scriptures intertwined and non-preaching. This is the first time that I have had a semblance of peace in months, and remembering the old people in the wonderful movement felt like spending time with old friends... friends I shed blood with in the 60s. I continue to believe in the Beloved community and it was nice to spend the time remembering why we fought for it.
   another masterpiece from John meacham
A remarkable book on a wonderful man John Lewis rest in peace, another magnificent masterpiece by John Meacham one of many books I must own that he wrote.
