Summary Richard Wills focuses on one particular aspect of King's theology - 'Imago Dei' - the idea that human beings are made in God's image. For King, this meant that human beings have not only the right but also the power to reshape society and to build a 'Beloved Community' on earth. Wills relates this theory to King's civil rights beliefs
