The Gospel According to RFK

The Gospel According to RFK

Why It Matters Now: New Expanded Edition

New Expanded Edition to Commemorate the 40th Anniversary of Robert Kennedy’s 1968 Presidential Campaign. With 30 pages of new material. “He was in many ways the greatest president we never had,” writes Norman MacAfee in a new introduction to this revised edition of The Gospel According to RFK: Why It Matters Now. In the 81 days of his campaign, RFK outlined what seems today a redemptive vision for America: ending war and decreasing the gap between the races and classes, between rich and poor, black and brown and white. And then he was assassinated on June 5. But his words and thoughts and speeches remain to challenge and inspire. Included in The Gospel According to RFK are Kennedy’s lengthy condemnation of war and his extraordinary, extemporaneous eulogy for Martin Luther King. Speeches new to this edition include “On the Mindless Menace of Violence” and Senator Edward Kennedy’s eulogy for his brother at Saint Patrick’s Cathedral. The Gospel According to RFK is filled with ideas that can be used to make a better world. It is for Democrats, liberals, independents, progressives and even some Republicans to read for inspiration and guidance. As Kennedy said, “Together we can make ourselves a nation that spends more on books than on bombs, more on hospitals than the terrible tools of war, more on decent houses than military aircraft.”
