Samuel Rodriguez: The Messages of Graham and King

 A new social movement is needed in the Church in America that reconciles Billy Graham's message with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s march, the Rev. Samuel Rodriguez argues in his new book, The Lamb's Agenda: Why Jesus is Calling You to a Life of Righteousness and Justice.

Rodriguez, president of the National Hispanic Leadership Conference and a senior editorial advisor for The Christian Post, uses Graham and King to symbolize two dimensions of the Christian mission. Like the cross, there is the vertical dimension that looks to God and is concerned with personal righteousness and the horizontal dimension that looks to others and is concerned with justice.
