Abstract

This thesis is written primarily to show the strong foundation which King's religious thought gives to his social activism and his nonviolent resistance. To do so the thesis first shows how King's religious thought can be most fully seen within the context of the religious concept of the Kingdom of God. As the outline of King's religious thought develops, it will be seen that he emphasizes the themes of God's sovereignty, Christ's immanence, and the Kingdom of God both present and future. After an exposition of the basic tenets of King's nonviolent resistance, these religious themes are snown to be the basis upon which the nonviolent resistance rests.
