Martin Luther King’s visionary speech "I have a dream" is famous. In I Have a Dream, edited by James Echols, and subtitled Martin Luther King Jr and the future of multicultural America, African-American and Hispanic theologians assess the impact of that vision in past years, and its importance for the present (Augsburg Fortress/Alban, £9.95 (£9); 0-8006-3685-6).

Should America have entered the Second World War, or shouldn’t it? Joseph Leconte has collected essays and other texts by theologians, written in the 1930s and the 1940s, to address this issue. In The End of Illusions: Religious leaders confront Hitler’s gathering storm , he suggests that there are parallels with today’s war against terrorism, especially concerning Iraq (Rowman & Littlefield, £17.99 (£16.20); 0-7425-3499-5).
