Chris Broussard and Matthew Daniels Co-Host a New Video Bible Study featuring Andrew Young, Senate Chaplain Barry Black and other Notable Voices
NASHVILLE, Tenn., May 22, 2023 – A new transformative video Bible study, Share the Dream: Shining a Light in a Divided World through Six Principles of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., inspires and encourages viewers to transform their communities, cities and nations for Christ by embodying the biblical principles of love, conscience, freedom, justice, perseverance and hope.
Share the Dream offers a timely exploration of the timeless values that have the power to unite and ignite change in a world facing a tide of division, strife and violence. It releases from HarperCollins Publishing in collaboration with Urban Ministries, Inc., and The K.I.N.G. Movement on August 8, just weeks prior the momentous 60th anniversary of Dr. King’s historic “I Have a Dream” speech on August 28.
“In these difficult and dangerous times, this material needs to be in the arsenal of those who seek to bring healing to our hurting nation,” said U.S. Senate Chaplain Barry Black of Share the Dream.
Co-hosted by Matthew Daniels, J.D., Ph.D., a human rights and counter-terrorism expert, and Chris Broussard, an acclaimed journalist and broadcaster for FOX Sports 1 and FOX Sports Radio, Share the Dream brings together an esteemed lineup of high-profile figures who lend their insights and perspectives. Featured contributors include:
- Ambassador Andrew Young
- U.S. Senate Chaplain Barry Black
- ABC News Broadcast Journalist Linsey Davis
- GRAMMY Award-winning musical artist Lecrae; and
- U.S. Senator Chris Coons.
“Many of us have been sidelined for too long and paralyzed by the complexity of the issues facing us. We don’t know what to do, so often we do nothing. But that’s a formula for social disaster,” said Daniels. “In order to truly enact change, we have to build networks and communities that can model and spread the ideas that are the spiritual and educational antidote to ideologies of hatred, racism and violence.”
The video study consists of dynamic lessons that delve into each of the six principles, accompanied by an engaging study guide to facilitate individual or group reflection. Each lesson combines powerful teachings, thought-provoking discussions, and real-life applications to encourage viewers to live out these principles in their daily lives.
“Dr. King’s dream was rooted in the love of God for all humanity – for all of His children made in His image. In other words, there was a profoundly spiritual dimension to the early Civil Rights Movement,” said Broussard. “For our nation to thrive, we need to help a new generation better understand, live and experience the Gospel-based principles at the heart of the dream to which Dr. King dedicated his life. That’s why we created Share the Dream.”
Share the Dream provides an invaluable opportunity for individuals and communities to deepen their understanding of Dr. King’s legacy and the profound impact of the biblical principles that motivated him, bridging the gap between the past and the present in the pursuit of a more just, compassionate and unified society.
“Dr. King and other courageous men and women were able to change history through the power of a dream that was rooted in the Gospel and the love of God for all of His children made in His image,” said Urban Ministries’ CEO, C. Jeffrey Wright. “Our Share the Dream series explores the profoundly spiritual dimension to the early civil rights movement. We also show how the Gospel-based principles behind the astonishing success of that movement can be applied in our nation and our world. Perhaps this is most clearly seen in the famous ‘I Have a Dream’ speech that Dr. King delivered on August 28, 1963, in which he called for racial equality in America.”
