Abstract 

In this book chapter about white civil rights activist and Baptist minister Will D. Campbell, author John Egerton discusses Campbell's life and work as a Christian embodiment of the pursuit of racial equality. While Campbell believed in God, he did not concern himself with the other major doctrines of Christianity and his writings encompassed many different theological perspectives. Campbell led civil rights activists through his leadership position at the National Council of Churches (NCC) and his role as an advisor to many other organizations that fought for racial equality. He claimed that the revolution that would bring about equal rights for African Americans was yet to come.
