Taylor, co-founder of the Progressive National Baptist Convention with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., has been called one of the best preachers in America and one of 12 greatest preachers in the English-speaking world by Newsweek.

Dr. Taylor has preached around the globe, holds over 100 honorary degrees and countless awards, and has taught at the country’s most esteemed institutions and divinity schools.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Troy Johnson on February 15, 2013
Format: Hardcover
Despite being born the grandson of slaves in Baton Rouge, Louisiana on June 18, 1918, Gardner Calvin Taylor earned degrees from Leland College and Oberlin Graduate School of Theology before becoming the legendary pastor of Brooklyn's Concord Baptist Church at the age of 30. And over the course of his enduring career there, he earned a reputation as one of the best preachers in the nation. During the Civil Rights Movement, he also served as a mentor and confidant to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.,

Faith in the Fire: Wisdom for Life, an enlightening opus distilling Dr. Taylor's insights on a variety of subjects ranging from love to God to race to politics to motherhood to family.

For example, the author muses about the prospect for a Second Coming of Christ, suggesting that, upon His return, Jesus, "would be assassinated, lynched, or, if you prefer, crucified as before."

Thought provoking pearls of wisdom from the Poet Laureate of Progressive Protestantism.

Dr. Taylor does not hide his own struggles through the many years of faith and ministry! The level of transparency serves to offer to the reader even greater depths of wisdom and counsel for the reader. This book is a rare treasure from a rare giant in the Kingdom!

As always, Taylor never fails to convey deep insight, courage, wisdom, and prophetic imagination. There has not been any better preacher=theologian, especially in the area of political theology since, Taylor's friend and protege, Martin Luther King.
