Reviews

"A valuable discussion of an extraordinary man who deserves our everlasting admiration and gratitude."-The Washington Post

"Meacham tells this story with his customary eloquence . . . a welcome reminder of the heroic sacrifices and remarkable achievements of those young radicals-20th-century America's greatest generation."-Eric Foner, The New York Times Book Review

"
His Truth Is Marching On
is well worth reading, especially for readers with an abiding interest in the intersection of religion and progressive politics . . . an inspiring book that comes at a time when the world desperately needs inspiration."-NPR

"An elegant, moving portrait of a giant of post-1950 American history."-Kirkus Reviews

"Meacham talks directly to the reader, his eyes burning, his voice calm but quaking with emotion. . . . Meacham takes the familiar story of the scars and bruises on John Lewis' body as literally an embodiment of the struggles of the civil rights era, and brings alive with cinematic conviction the backstory of how specifically those blows came about."-San Francisco Chronicle

"His Truth Is Marching On combines careful reporting, historic photographs, and detailed notes and appendices. But the book ultimately shines brightest as a story of how one man made a difference by believing in justice and offering hope for a nation in difficult times."-Chapter 16
