Against the Hounds of Hell—A Life of Howard Thurman by Peter Eisenstadt

June 1 - June 30

This is the fifth installment in the new Virginia House Book Club brought to you by a partnership between Shrine Mont and University of Virginia Press


This biography chronicles the life of Howard Thurman, “the first significant Black pacifist and the first African American to meet Mahatma Gandhi. He was a mystic, a seeker of God who had considerable impact on the course of twentieth-century liberal religion.” Appointed Dean of Chapel at Boston University’s School of Theology in 195,3 Thurman spoke truth to power through his commitment to non-violence.
