We will explore the theological dimension of Heschel and King’s well-known alliance, which centered on a shared preoccupation with biblical prophecy and a common understanding of how God does and doesn’t play a role in human affairs. How were they so sure of God’s will regarding earthly politics? How did their view of themselves as latter-day prophets shape their language, policies, and causes? What can they teach us about our own time, when political action in God's name is so often repellent?
