Shaun Alexander The Walk God invites you to grow through five stages of spiritual maturity Walking with God is not a contest or a competition, and it has nothing to do with how you look in front of others. Your walk with Christ is the most extreme, dangerous, and intimate adventure you will ever be part of. But all you have to do is walk, which takes you to a place where it’s not about you—instead, you will become part of something that is much bigger than anything you can imagine. While our tendency is to run ahead of God or lag behind, just walking with God through the stages of spiritual maturity will transform your life with biblical wisdom, God’s direction, and the power of the Holy Spirit. With God at your side, your life will have an unprecedented impact on others.

David A. Anderson Gracism: The Art of Inclusion ''The parts that we think are less honorable we treat with special honor.'' I CORINTHIANS 12:23.... When people deal with color, class or culture in a negative way, that's racism. But the answer is not to ignore differences as if they don't matter. Instead, we can focus on diversity in a positive way, as an opportunity to show God's favor to others. That's gracism. David Anderson, pastor of one of the most vibrant multicultural churches in America, responds to prejudice and injustice with the principle of gracism – radical inclusion for the marginalized and excluded. Building on the apostle Paul's exhortations in 1 Corinthians 12 to honor the weaker member, Anderson presents a biblical model for showing special grace to others on the basis of color, class or culture. He offers seven sayings of the gracist with practical examples for building bridges and including others. A Christian alternative to secular models of affirmative action or colorblindness, gracism is an opportunity to extend God's grace to people of all backgrounds.

Marilyn Mayo Anderson Black Pearl Marcus Phillips is his father's pride and joy. He is a Christian, well mannered, and an intelligent young man. At an early age, he had already decided what his life's work would be. He had aspirations of becoming a doctor ever since he was 10 years old. To equip Marcus in handling negative influences, his father tried to be a strong positive role model for his son, by encouraging Marcus to read the Word of God and live by His standards. Marcus' father constantly lectured him about staying focused on his education and not letting modern-day Delilahs distract him. As a young adolescent, Marcus remained very focused. He was shy and reserved, and he was considered by his classmates to be a nerd. However, at the age of sixteen, he became mesmerized with a self-centered and very persuasive girl named Shelby Williams. Shelby was everything that Marcus wasn't: popular, outgoing, fashionable, and vivacious. He daydreamed about having a beautiful girl like Shelby one day, but believed that a girl like her would never notice him, so he tried his best to ignore her. Although Marcus tried to ignore Shelby, she masterminded a plan to force her way into his life. She barged her way into his life with such aggression that he was taken aback, but yet, so intrigued by her presence that he felt powerless to resist her. Despite his father's warnings about her, he was drawn to her like a moth to a flame, and the peaceful life he was accustomed to would never be the same. Shelby's main focus in life was to party and spend money. She had no interest in going to church or becoming a Christian like Marcus. This made Shelby more determined than ever to have Marcus as her trophy. Despite their parents' disapproval, Marcus and Shelby ultimately ended up together, but Marcus would spend a tremendous amount of valuable time, (distracting him from his dream of becoming a doctor), on the roller coaster of emotions with Shelby. Was his faith in God and support from his family strong enough to enable him to survive this tumultuous relationship?

Lewis Baldwin "Thou, Dear God": Prayers That Open Hearts and Spirits "Thou, Dear God" is the first and only collection of sixty-eight prayers by Martin Luther King, Jr. Arranged thematically in six parts--with prayers for spiritual guidance, special occasions, times of adversity, times of trial, uncertain times, and social justice--Baptist minister and King scholar Lewis Baldwin introduces the book and each section with short essays. Included are both personal and public prayers King recited as a seminarian, graduate student, preacher, pastor, and, finally, civil rights leader, along with a special section that reveals the biblical sources that most inspired King. Collectively they illustrate how King turned to private prayer for his own spiritual fulfillment and to public prayer as a way to move, inspire, and reaffirm a quest for peace and social justice. With a foreword by Rev. Dr. Julius R. Scruggs, it is the perfect gift for people and leaders of all faiths, and an invaluable resource for spiritual individuals and those who lead worship. The book includes a very rare, very limited use photo of Dr. King praying and gold foil stamping on the front cover, a frontispiece photo of the King family at prayer, a prayer ribbon, and elegant endpapers.

But what if it’s those troubles that actually lead to greater blessing and purpose?

Anthony Bradley John Rawls and Christian Social Engagement This book critiques the Rawlsian concepts of “justice as fairness” and “public reason” from the perspective of Christian political theory and practice. The Rawlsian paradigm has become pervasive in multiple disciplines outside political philosophy and is unconsciously embedded in a great deal of Christian public discourse; this calls for a new level of analysis from Christian perspectives. This is the first volume to examine Rawls based on Christian principles drawn from theological ethics, social thought, political theory and practical observation. In addition to theoretical perspectives, the book connects its critique of Rawls to specific hot-topic practical questions in three areas: social issues (abortion, marriage, etc.), economic issues (wealth creation, poverty programs, etc.), and the increasing difficulty of political compromise and peaceful coexistence in the context of the culture war. The book includes some of the leading Christian political theorists in America.

Taylor Branch At Canaan's Edge: America in the King Years 1965-68 These concluding years of the freedom era show King at the height of his powers even as his worldly prestige falls under withering attack. We witness non-violent advances for democracy in the face of growing factionalism and fear. We meet heroines and martyrs; enter a world battered by private doubts, public dreams, contagious inspiration, official harassment, and poisonous discord over the Vietnam War. The narrative begins with violence before the pivotal 1965 Selma march for the right to vote, a dangerous time. From landmark victory there, King's movement comes under threat from competing forces. Branch chronicles dramatic campaigns in Mississippi and Alabama, King's tormented alliance with Lyndon Johnson, his painful break with Stokey Carmichael over black power, and persecution by Hoover's FBI. Like "Parting the Waters" and "Pillar of Fire", "At Canaan's Edge" is a magnificent achievement that brings the decades of the Civil Rights struggle alive and preserves the integrity of those who marched and died.

Millions of viewers know James Brown as a sports commentator and former athlete. With ROLE OF A LIFETIME, James reveals a different side of his character. Brown rose from a middle-class home to earn a scholarship to Harvard and a chance at a professional sports career before moving on to broadcast journalism. Part memoir and part self-help, this book draws on James's lessons from his faith and life experiences to guide readers to find fulfillment and significance.

Samuel R. Chand Cracking Your Church's Culture Code Strategies for transforming a toxic church culture Why is it that the best strategic plans and good leadership often are not able to move churches in the desired direction? Sam Chand contends that toxic culture is to blame. Quite often, leaders don't sense the toxicity, but it poisons their relationships and derails their vision. This work describes five easily identifiable categories of church culture (inspiring-accepting-stagnant-discouraging-toxic), with diagnostic descriptions in the book and a separate online assessment tool. The reader will be able to identify strengths and needs of their church's culture, and then apply practical strategies (communication, control and authority, selection and placement of personnel, etc.) to make their church's culture more positive. This important book offers a clear guide for understanding and recreating a healthy church culture.

It Happens After Prayer The Difference Jesus Makes: Trusting Him in Every Situation

On the Web: www.HBCharlesJr.com


Christena Cleveland Disunity in Christ Despite Jesus' prayer that all Christians "be one," divisions have been epidemic in the body of Christ from the beginning to the present. We cluster in theological groups, gender groups, age groups, ethnic groups, educational and economic groups. We criticize freely those who disagree with us, don't look like us, don't act like us and don't even like what we like. Though we may think we know why this happens, Christena Cleveland says we probably don't. In this eye-opening book, learn the hidden reasons behind conflict and divisions. Learn: • • • • • •

Why I think all my friends are unique but those in other groups are all the same Why little differences often become big sources of conflict Why categorizing others is often automatic and helpful but can also have sinister side effects Why we are so often victims of groupthink and how we can avoid it Why women think men are judging them more negatively than men actually are, and vice versa Why choices of language can actually affect unity

With a personal touch and the trained eye of a social psychologist, Cleveland brings to bear the latest studies and research on the unseen dynamics at work that tend to separate us from others. Learn why Christians who have a heart for unity have such a hard time actually uniting. The author provides real insight for ministry leaders who have attempted to build bridges across boundaries. Here are the tools we need to understand how we can overcome the hidden forces that divide us.

Larry Wayne Ellis Psalm 23 for Today: Relevant, Resourceful, Refreshing The 23rd Psalm is a classic. It is eternal in its meaning and contemporary in its application. One cannot improve upon this text. We need to know that the shepherd cares for the sheep today! The needs are different. The valleys are different. The enemies are different. However, human needs have not change. The search continues for someone to lead us to a place of rest, relevance, and refreshment. As an author, I desire to contribute to the conversation with the psalmist and the shepherd. It is possible to draw fresh water from old wells. In the chapters, “His Name is On You”, “Valley Walk Don’t Run”, and “Happy Valley” are means to explore the psalm from the seat of modernity. The “No Fear Zone” and “God’s Teaching Tools” are again new lenses to look at current situations. Ultimately, I am in hopes of rekindling interest in this timeless treasure. The Shepherd is still good. He still leads and he still cares for his own. The assurance he gives is just what we need in a world gone awry. There are still absolutes. Goodness and mercy will follow me and the Shepherd will lead me. This is the assurance we need for times such as these.

Tony Evans America: Turning a Nation to God In this illuminating work by Dr. Tony Evans, he examines the root of our nation's social, economic and political unrest. Through insightful truths and illustrations, Dr. Evans not only brings to light the core cause of our country's current instabilities but presents a plan for reclaiming freedom, morality and strength. We hold within the collective body of Christ not only the power but also the capacity to put our country back on the path of ascendancy. This straightforward teaching, when embraced by believers in our nation, will usher in the greatest revival in American history. This book proclaims a timely and urgent message for every believer and church in America: we must turn around, for the road we are following leads to destruction. Dr. Evans shows that the real solution is spiritual, not political. His passionate call for a solemn assembly leading to revival must be heeded-before it is too late. Absorb these penetrating words and pass them on to others. -J. Paul Nyquist, president, Moody Bible Institute Tony Evans has a gift with words, and in this book he offers much-needed admonition and encouragement to Christians who both love their country and who place their trust in a King and kingdom that are not of this world. -Jim Daly, president, Focus on the Family It is hard to imagine anything more desperately needed in the American church than a revival of true religion. I earnestly hope that Tony Evans' book will stir many to seek God with all their hearts. The Lord is our only hope! -Richard Owen Roberts, International Awakening Ministries

Stones of Remembrance: A Rock-Hard Faith From Rock-Hard Places

Kevin Foreman Sins of the Fathers This book is a must have for every believer! The Bible teaches that there are three kinds of sin: Sin = to miss the mark; Transgression = to willingly disobey God; and Iniquity – which is generational sin that’s been passed down. The Bible says that the iniquity of the fathers would be passed down to the third and fourth generations. When you become a Christian your spirit is baptized into a new family, but your flesh can still operate under the generational curses of your bloodline.

George Foreman God In My Corner: A Spiritual Memoir Everyone needs a second chance, even if your name is George Foreman. "My second chance arrived unexpectedly in a Puerto Rican dressing room after a heavyweight boxing match. What happened to me in that room is so incredibly bizarre, it's unlikely you've ever before read anything like it. Simply stated, I died and went to the other side. The experience impacted me so profoundly that three decades later I can't go a single day without thinking about it."

L. W. Francisco III Dating & Relating: Friends with Benefits We live in a society where many relationships are formed on a foundation of physical attraction rather than commitment. Men and women alike are deceived into believing relationships are built on emotions, looks and infatuation. Television shows, movies and social media platforms give the impression that there is a perfect someone who will simply show up so that there can be a "happily ever after" ending. However, many who become too deeply involved with partners before having an opportunity to know who they really are end up hurt, devastated, bitter and bruised. In this book, you will be methodically guided through an in-depth journey of the information you need and the tell tale signs of both trouble and potential in a relationship. If you are single, divorced, widowed, or simply considering entering into a relationship with someone, then Dating and Relating: Friends with Benefits is the book for you.

Lesley A. Francisco Born in the Church but Not Born Again: Escaping the Religious Matrix Available: February 3, 2014 This book confronts the lies and manipulation that are often coupled with the gospel of religion. What do you do when you’re churched but not changed? There are those of us whom are accustomed to routine and not relationship. The religious matrix has held many captive and has depressed, oppressed and suppressed hundreds of thousands, if not millions of Christians around the world. My hope is that you will read this book carefully, learn to awaken from a religious stupor, and come to grips with the glorious grace that is found in Jesus Christ.

Henry Louis Gates, Jr. The African Americans: Many Rivers to Cross with Donald Yacovone The African Americans: Many Rivers to Cross is the companion book to the sixpart, six-hour documentary of the same name. The series is the first to air since 1968 that chronicles the full sweep of 500 years of African American history, from the origins of slavery on the African continent and the arrival of the first black conquistador, Juan Garrido, in Florida in 1513, through five centuries of remarkable historic events right up to Barack Obama’s second term as president, when the United States still remains deeply divided by race and class. The book explores these topics in even more detail than possible in the television series, and examines many other fascinating matters as well, guiding readers on an engaging journey through the Black Atlantic world—from Africa and Europe to the Caribbean, Latin America, and the United States—to shed new light on what it has meant, and means, to be an African American.

In this intriguing novel full of drama and plot twists, one family tries to hold on to their “perfect” life before their secrets, lies, and scandals are exposed. On the outside, the Joneses seem like the ideal family: Royce Jones, a funeral home mogul, and his wife, Lexi, are parents to Charity, Hope, and Lovie—and everybody wants to be them. But it’s true that money can’t buy happiness, and the Joneses are harboring secrets that can’t stay hidden forever… The funeral home business has been slow lately, and Royce is in serious trouble. When Lexi learns of their financial strain, she vows to hold on to her status by any means necessary—even if it means going behind her husband’s back. Lovie, seeing his beloved mother so stressed, will do whatever it takes to put a smile back on her face. And sibling rivalries tense up when Charity and Hope both fall for the same guy. On top of this, they all have secrets they’re hiding not only from people outside their family—but from each other. It’s only a matter of time before the Joneses’ perfect life goes spinning out of control and they’re revealed for who they truly are.

What role, if any, can a woman have in church? There are a lot of questions about the role of women in society and the church. Most people arrive at an answer by what their culture or tradition has taught them. However, culture and tradition are usually wrong! God has a very real purpose and function for the woman in His plan. Yet, many don't know it because Scripture has been misinterpreted and put women in bondage. Not any more! With his inimitable style, Bishop I.V. Hilliard takes on this topic as only he can. He presents a thorough Biblical defense for women not only being allowed to serve in ministry but that they are truly equal to a man in the eyes of God.

Dianna Hobbs The New A-List: Abstinence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder Corporately-backed media has set up members of the Hollywood A-list as modernday gods, molding everything from the values of society, to the sexual behaviors of an entire generation, and contributing to the erosion of the moral fiber of a nation. But a cultural shift is happening. A new army of A-listers, with the "A" representing abstinence, is arising and standing up for sexual purity, in a sex-crazed culture. In The New A-list, author Dianna Hobbs highlights and mobilizes a new crop of leaders, who are determined to lift the taboo off abstinence and virginity. Through research, biblical and practical principles, and personal stories, readers will discover how to effectively counter immoral culture, become positive change agents, and personally adopt a successful lifestyle of purity.

"If thou desire to profit, read with humility, simplicity, and faithfulness; nor even desire the repute of learning." THOMAS A KEMPIS


Ken Hutcherson Before All Hell Breaks Loose: Preparing for the Coming Perilous Times Pastor Ken Hutcherson is a candid commentator on the state of the modern church. He says we're living in the midst of the Seven Churches of Revelation right now. The real question for believers today is not, "What does the church think about Jesus?" but rather, "What does Jesus think about His Church?" What does He think about the passion, purity, and priorities of today's believers? Is He pleased? Grieved? Angry? Hutcherson shows how the message contained in Revelation, chapters two and three, is as up-to-date as today's headlines. This dynamic follow-up to Here Comes the Bride is the timely "wake-up call" every church -- and individual -- needs today.

Sherryle Kiser Jackson Path to Promise There’s a difference between running scared and running free. Rebecca Lucas is on the run again, running from rumors, running from reality, and most of all, running from Will, her best friend and soul mate. This time Rebecca is ready to reclaim the life she left behind in Salisbury before the burial of her mother and the handling of her mother’s estate. Time away, however, has done little to alleviate her biggest problem—her coworker Kenny Burke and the indecent proposal he pitched to her before leaving town. She’s back, and he uses every resource at his disposal to get her to go along with his plan.... For Will and Rebecca, the Path to Promise is far from a utopian street paved with gold. Will their paths, marred with their own obstacles, cross and lead them to the promises of God?

Whatever your age or situation as a woman, this book is for you! (It can also help fathers learn how to have those all-important conversations with their own daughters.) Jeffrey A. Johnson, Sr. has written this book from a father’s heart. You will find him talking openly and honestly about handling your beliefs, your bodies, your brains, your business, and your blessings. You will find these pages filled with a variety of topics, such as: learning to appreciate the “you” God created, avoiding impulse shopping, knowing what to look for in a mate, thinking as God thinks, and many other things. Whatever you are going through, you will find a word here that speaks to you and your situation. This book is based on the Word of God and it is written by a pastor who cares about you and wants to see you live a full, rich, abundant life!

The Song of Solomon The Song of Solomon Study Guide


Joey Johnson The Church: The Family of Families You may be saying to yourself, "another book on the family," or you may be wondering why a book on the Black family? Is there any difference between a Black family and any other family? I say definitely! The racial and cultural differences that exist among all peoples of the world necessitate that their problems be different and unique. I do believe that, in essence, all families have basic similarities. This would be true from my point of view for a number of reasons. First of all, since we all come from common ancestry (according to the Bible), it stands to reason that all family living grows out of that ancestry. Second, I believe profoundly in the Bible, God’s Holy Word. I believe that the Bible gives principles that cover every situation and circumstance of life. Furthermore, the Bible specifically gives principles for stable family living. These principles are good for all people no matter what race, color, or creed. Yet, it is the interpretation and application of these principles to unique groups of people that needs much attention. Without proper interpretation and application of the Bible to our own lives and circumstances, we will not benefit from it. --Bishop Joey Johnson

Kevin Wayne Johnson Called to be Light in the Workplace (A Workbook) Called to be Light in the Workplace – A Workbook is the revised and expanded version of the second book (2003) in this series. This workbook challenges its readers to be ‘light’ on their respective job(s) in each of the three phases of career progression: (1) Entry-level (trainee or intern), (2) journey-man level (middle manager), and (3) senior level (executive or mentor). God’s Word ministers about how to encourage others at work and influence positive change in the midst of dysfunctional places of employment. Through the lives of Jesus, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Evangelist Billy Graham, Dr. Ben Carson, and many other recognizable and unrecognizable names, excellence in their jobs has raised the level of productivity of others. It is systematically divided into three parts, with three chapters each. Supported by the Scriptures throughout, the central theme of each chapter focuses on specific ways to let our ‘light’ shine and to Give God the Glory! while at work each day.

E.N. Joy You Get What You Pray For Lorain has been a prisoner of secrets almost all of her life. At the age of thirteen, she'd managed to keep her pregnancy a secret, discarding the infant she'd given birth to and leaving it for dead. She also never revealed the fact that the baby's father was her middle school guidance counselor. Years later, Lorain's mother had finally met the love of her life, and Lorain couldn't find the courage to tell her mother that her new beau was the man who molested Lorain. To complicate matters, Lorain discovered that the baby she'd abandoned all those years ago had survived, and God had placed Lorain in the now adult child's life. It seemed liked the legacy of secrets had been passed on, too, as Lorain helped her daughter conceal the true details behind her own pregnancy. Lorain has managed to maneuver the secrets and lies like a strategic game of chess, and is now living the lavish fairytale life of a doctor's wife. But even that is a lie. With the rug about to be pulled from underneath Lorain by the woman who raised her abandoned child, all Lorain prays for is that everything will end well. In this cycle of lies, secrets, shame, and guilt, will Lorain get what she prays for?

Trip Lee Rise Society says youth is a time for carefree self-expression, but Trip Lee says God has called everyone to RISE from slumber, above low expectations, and to live for the risen King. The world tells us that our early years are to be irresponsibly enjoyed rather than devoted to meaningful pursuits. We’re told that responsibility and commitment are burdens to be put off as long as possible. And so, most of us spend our youth in a sad state of slumber—sleeping in on life until we’re forced to get up. The problem is that life has already begun. It’s happening right now. And God has called you to live it. ALSO GET: The Good Life

Sherri Lewis Becoming Mrs. Right Shauntae Randall knows she’s not smart or talented at much of anything, but she also knows she’s gorgeous and can handle herself around a man. So, she’s made a career of it. She thought she had struck gold a few years back when she was lucky enough to get pregnant by Devon Wright. She knew they’d get married, he would take care of her and her baby, and she’d be set for life. What Shauntae didn’t know was that it’s much harder to keep a man than it is to catch him. Now she’s lost custody of the child and the child support check and has to go back to hustling. Shauntae is lucky enough to get herself pregnant by Gary Jackson. She knows she has to figure out how to be a good wife to Gary and a good mother to their child to keep herself in his big, fancy house and his big, fancy car. She has to learn to talk “proper” and say all the right things at the right time. The absolute worst thing is that Shauntae must learn how to be a “church girl.” When issues with Gary’s ex-wife and kids threaten Shauntae’s “get married and stay married” plan, it’s actually God that helps her out. Shauntae decides that instead of hustling God, she might want to get to know Him. But can an ex-hustler really shed her old ways and become a true Christian, and a good wife and mother?

Lipsey My Wife My Baby...And Him Available: February 28, 2014 In the fifth installment of the My Son's Wife series, Senior Pastor Stiles Graham and First Lady Detria Graham's marriage is rapidly falling apart, thanks to her adulterous ways. Stiles had hoped and prayed that the time they spent away from Memphis would make their marriage stronger, but after just months from returning from Myrtle Beach, Stiles questions whether that is truly the case. When what's done in the dark comes to light, and Stiles discovers that Detria is cheating on him with his good friend, Skip Madison, the marriage quickly unravels. This startling revelation brings out the worse in Stiles Graham, and leads to his eventual downfall. During the midst of it all, Detria learns that she is pregnant. As much as she wanted to steer clear of Skip Madison and give her marriage to Stiles a fighting chance, her heart says something different. Now she finds herself worried about who is the father of her unborn child. Turmoil, trouble, deception and disaster infiltrate this marriage, and much is at stake, including Stiles pastoral position at Holy Rock. When tragedy strikes this already dysfunctional marriage, it sends life, as they know it spiraling down a never-ending tunnel of hurt, anger and grief, leaving both Stiles and Detria questioning their faith and belief in God to restore their lives and relationship.

Tia McCollors Sunday Morning Song For ten years, Quinn Montgomery endured her husband's abuse, which always escalated on Sunday afternoons, until she finally left him, escaping with her young son, Devin. With her ex-husband behind bars, she makes a fresh start in a new city, ready to forget the scars of yesterday. A traffic violation brings her face-to-face with a police officer she recognizes—the one who tended to Devin while his father was put under arrest. While she remembers his face, she remembers him more for his kindness and compassion, and gladly agrees to give him her phone number in exchange for a waived ticket. Leviticus "Levi" Gray could never forget Quinn Montgomery. Although the first time they met, the right side of her face was swollen from her husband's violent blows, the look in her eyes never changed. He sees a woman who longs to be loved, and he plans on being God's vehicle for that love. Yet his pursuit is not without challenges. Quinn works hard to keep others out of the life she's built for her and her son, and Levi soon realizes that even though her ex-husband is the one behind bars, Quinn inhabits a prison of her own. With the help of Quinn's confidante and a lot of prayer, Levi comes up with a plan to break down the barrier she's built around her heart. But can he manage to woo her without scaring her off?

Miles McPherson God in the Mirror: Discovering Who You Were Created to Be It's tempting to define ourselves according to the cultural and societal icons of our day. More than ever, the world tells us that "image is everything." But human beings were created in the image of God, a truth of which Miles McPherson wants to remind believers. In God in the Mirror, McPherson shows readers how they were created, why they were created, what their true purpose is in life, and how to remake themselves according to God's original plan for their lives. He reminds readers that they not only have the capacity to reflect God's holiness to the world, but that God enables them to do so. And when we live more and more as image-bearers in this world, we begin to experience repaired relationships with each other and with God. The God in the Mirror DVD and discussion guide present six sessions that will equip individuals, small groups, and church classes to grapple with what it means to be made in the image of God and what the implications are for our daily lives.

The Power of Character in Leadership How to Protect Your Leadership Influence and Power You've worked hard to achieve your dreams and goals. Many others have done the same-only to lose it all in the end. Every day, we read about successful people in various walks of life who have lost their power and influence. They've been fired, forced to resign, or shamed out of public life. They no longer have a market for their gifts, and they may even face criminal proceedings. These leaders have lost the trust of their companies, constituents, nations, followers, and families. Many were surprised to discover that their talents alone were not enough to prevent their downfall. Why did they fail in the end? Because they lacked the one quality that would have protected their leadership and given them enduring influence. Ironically, this quality is seldom taught to leaders today, either formally or informally. It is the quality of moral force, or character. Every human being is a leader over some domain as he or she exercises gifts and influence. That domain might be the halls of government, the boardroom, the classroom, the community, or the home. In The Power of Character in Leadership, you will discover what character is, what it means to develop moral force, and how to preserve your leadership influence so that it is both effective and enduring.

Now the frenemies have found themselves the stars of First Ladies, a much-anticipated new reality television show. Jasmine balks at the idea of airing her dirty laundry on national TV, but Rachel sees it as the perfect opportunity to take her brand to the next level. And if Rachel is in, so is Jasmine. All the cast members are women of God—how much drama can there be? Rachel and Jasmine know their own pasts are murky, but they’ll seem like choir girls when the secrets and sins of the others come to light. The two will once again have to form an unholy alliance to go up against these so-called Godly women who see the show as their chance to take them down—at any cost.

Enuma Okoro Talking Taboo: American Christian Women Get Frank About Faith Publication Date: October 29, 2013 American Christian Women under 40 are being theologically trained in unprecedented numbers, accessing leadership in their communities through both orthodox and unorthodox avenues, and balancing the roles of professional, wife, mother, girlfriend, and friend. With all of the perceived progress, why do they feel like their young voices still aren’t being heard? And if they found the courage to speak, what would they want to say? The latest book in the I Speak For Myself series addresses the experiences of faith, gender, and identity that remain taboo for American Christian Women Under 40. Is it our desire to remain childless in a Catholic tradition that largely defines women by their ability to reproduce? Is it our struggle with pornography in an evangelical subculture that addresses it only as the temptation of unsatisfied men? From masturbation, miscarriage, and menstruation to ordination, co-habitation, and immigration, this collection of essays explores the most provocative topics of faith left largely unspoken in 21st century American faith life. For women and their partners, faith leaders and their members, historians and their students, this book documents the voices of young Christian women and their refusal to be silent any longer.

Star Parker White Ghetto: How Middle Class America Reflects Inner City Decay Decaying values. Sexually transmitted diseases. Fatherless homes. Rampant drug use. These aren't just problems for today's inner cities. It's the plight of all America. Much has been said about Bill Cosby's incendiary remarks about urban black culture and its "dirty laundry." But in this provocative book, Star Parker, one of today's most controversial commentators, goes even further, proving that urban plight simply reveals a decay that is gnawing its way throughout American society as a whole. The sexual chaos, values disorientation, and social turmoil we see in our inner cities, Parker argues, is just a magnified reflection of the moral collapse happening all over America: in our schools, our churches, our homes. And this slide toward moral decrepitude is all due to a flagrant dismissal of and assault on America's tried-and-true values. With startling statistics and disturbing stories about the increasing secularization and criminalization of the middle class, Parker holds a cracked mirror up to suburbia. Taking on tough subjects such as abortion, drug abuse, sexual politics, and religion, she offers a rousing exploration of the raging cultural war-taking you on a wild, eye-opening tour through the White Ghetto.

John M. Perkins With Justice for All: A Strategy for Community Development Publication Date: February 7, 2011 “I am persuaded that the Church, as the steward of this gospel, holds the key to justice in our society. Either justice will come through us or it will not come at all.” John Perkins’s optimistic view of justice becoming a reality starts and ends with the Church. With Justice for All is Perkins’s invitation to live out the gospel in a way that brings good news to the poor and liberty to the oppressed (from Luke 4:18). This invitation is extended to every racial and ethnic group to be reconciled to one another, to work together to make our land all God wants it to be. And it is a blueprint —a practical strategy for the work of biblical justice in our time. In an age of changing demographics where the need to break the cycle of poverty is staring many of us in the face, Perkins offers hope through practical ministry principles—that work. This outstanding resource includes “Reflection” questions for personal or group study as well as “Interaction” sessions for groups to participate in activities together.

Spencer Perkins More Than Equals: Racial Healing for the Sake of the Gospel Publication Date: April 26, 2000 Recipient of a Christianity Today 1994 Critics Choice Award! Here is living proof that white and black Christians can live together. When Spencer Perkins was sixteen years old, he visited his bloodied and swollen father (pastor John Perkins) in jail. Police had beaten the black activist severely, and Spencer never forgot the moment. He couldn't imagine living in community with a white person after that. But his plans were changed. Chris Rice grew up in very different circumstances, of "Vermont Yankee stock," attending an elite Eastern college and looking forward to a career in law and government. But his plans were changed. Spencer and Chris became not only friends, but yokefellows--partners for more than a decade in the difficult ministry of racial reconciliation. From their own hard-won experience, they show that there is hope for our frightening race problem, that whites and African-Americans can live together in peace. This revised and expanded edition includes a new introduction, a new afterword, a new study guide, updated resources and a new chapter by Spencer, "Playing the Grace Card." In compellingly practical detail, Chris and Spencer present their hope, which is boldly and radically Christian. "The cause of racial reconciliation needs yokefellows," they argue, ". . . not solely for the sake of racial harmony--even though it will lead to that--but for the witness of the gospel."

Betty Price Warning to Ministers, Their Wives: Avoid the Road to Destruction Publication Date: June 1, 2009 "I write this now on behalf of the thousands upon thousands of ministers who live right, and for the hopefully many, many young ministers who will read this book and avoid living unrighteous lives," declares Dr. Betty Price. Whether you are studying for the ministry, already serving as a pastor or bishop, supporting a spouse in ministry, or in the midst of an affair with a minister, Dr. Betty is offering you a lifeline to help you navigate away from Satan's trap and into the life God intended for you. More than four decades as a pastor's wife and as a minister herself have convinced Dr. Betty that the time is now for the body of Christ to take a firm stand against immorality in the pulpit and in the pews. She has seen sexual sin destroy the lives of God's chosen, and she is speaking out of love and from the Scriptures with important instructions about how to avoid and become free of the bondage of sin.

Frederick K. C. Price Answered Prayer...Guaranteed!: The Power of Praying with Faith Price explains a biblical and experimentally based method of prayer. It will provoke assurance and confidence that God hears your prayers and answers them. Most Christians struggle with their commitment to prayer and wrestle with a proper prayer attitude —even posture. Price debunks the teaching on prayer that says, “Sometimes God says yes, sometimes He says no, and sometimes He says wait.” He teaches how God responds to faith and faith alone, and why it is critical for us to understand how to pray in faith and not in doubt, ignorance, or presumption.

Samuel D. Proctor "How Shall They Hear?": Effective Preaching for Vital Faith There is "a new audience facing the preacher of the gospel today," writes Dr. Proctor. Addressing the needs of this new audience, one that lives in an ever-changing world, Proctor explores four vital faith issues that he sees as the basis of relevant preaching. First presented as the 1990 Lyman Beecher Lectures on Preaching at Yale Divinity School, these concepts are described by Dr. Proctor as "the basic messages that hearers are listening for from the preacher." Preachers seeking to bring the Gospel alive to the person in the pew will find sermon preparation fired with powerful ideas as Proctor explores four faith propositions: God's presence and participation in human affairs; spiritual renewal that restores and redeems human nature and that is available to all; the achieving of genuine community through God's enduring love for humanity; the experiencing of eternity in the here and now.

Condoleezza Rice No Higher Honor Publication Date: November 1, 2011 From one of the world’s most admired women, this is former National Security Advisor and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice’s compelling story of eight years serving at the highest levels of government. In her position as America’s chief diplomat, Rice traveled almost continuously around the globe, seeking common ground among sometimes bitter enemies, forging agreement on divisive issues, and compiling a remarkable record of achievement. No Higher Honor takes the reader into secret negotiating rooms where the fates of Israel, the Palestinian Authority, and Lebanon often hung in the balance, and it draws back the curtain on how frighteningly close all-out war loomed in clashes involving Pakistan-India and Russia-Georgia, and in East Africa. Surprisingly candid in her appraisals of various Administration colleagues and the hundreds of foreign leaders with whom she dealt, Rice also offers here keen insight into how history actually proceeds. In No Higher Honor, she delivers a master class in statecraft -- but always in a way that reveals her essential warmth and humility, and her deep reverence for the ideals on which America was founded.

Gwen Richardson Amen Corner: How the National Media Shaped Public Opinion on Gay Marriage Publication Date: October 2, 2013 In 2004, Gallup polls showed that 42 percent of Americans supported gay marriage. Eight years later, by the end of 2012, support had jumped to 53 percent. Public opinion seemed to change at a rapid pace, almost overnight. How did it shift so quickly? The answer is: the media. In the same way that a small cadre of enthusiastic supporters in the amen corner of a church agrees with the preacher’s every utterance from the pulpit, the media have been consistent champions for gay marriage and lesbian-gay-bisexual-transgender (LGBT) causes. Through a carefully orchestrated system of selective reporting, slanted coverage and rewards and punishments, national media have gradually nudged public opinion in the direction of approval of gay marriage. Amen Corner: How the National Media Shaped Public Opinion on Gay Marriage examines the methods used by the media to promote gay marriage over the past 20 years, the effects of its promotion on the public discourse, and a plan of action consumers can utilize to be better informed as the debate on this important issue moves forward.

Sylvia Rose Rise Up: A Call to Leadership for African American Women Publication Date: June 9, 2004 Do you hear the call to lead? "The world needs women to stand in leadership," writes Sylvia Rose, "black women in particular. We need to lead from the insight that we have had at the bottom. We need to take our valley experiences to those on the mountaintop. We need to serve as lawyers for those who, through mere birth and bad breaks, cannot know justice in a system that too often recognizes and rewards wealth. We must be jurists because we have been misjudged. We must sit on corporate boards and become CEOs because we make up a great majority of the blue-collar jobs that fill the coffers of the corporate world. We have been great mothers but it’s time for us to birth other things. This generation needs something that our lives contain, and we must answer their call." God calls all of us to serve with our gifts. As we follow God into leadership, we will need new skills. Drawing on her own rich experience as well as the experience of others, Sylvia Rose shows us the way through some of the challenges, such as: • • • • •

facing crisis acting with courage listening to your conscience maintaining your commitment developing compassion

Amanda King served as an anointed and powerful leader for the women’s ministry of Faith Tabernacle Church. Though thousands of women have been blessed by her leadership, J.

Drawing on his years of experience as a pastor, public policy maker, and community leader, DeForest 'Buster' Soaries, Jr. shares the four vital keys to debt-free living in this groundbreaking, life-changing new approach. 'The idea that we would be voluntary slaves is offensive to all of our sensibilities,' says Soaries, 'But when we continue to spend what we don't have, charge what we don't need, and borrow more than we can repay, then we must call the problem what it is: slavery.' This is not another financial literacy program assuming that all people need is information. Soaries believes living in debt is an emotional, spiritual, and psychological problem as much as it is an educational and informational one.

Thomas Sowell A Conflict of Visions: Ideological Origins of Political Struggles Publication Date: June 5, 2007 In this classic work, Thomas Sowell analyzes the two competing visions that shape our debates about the nature of reason, justice, equality, and power: the “constrained” vision, which sees human nature as unchanging and selfish, and the “unconstrained” vision, in which human nature is malleable and perfectible. He describes how these two radically opposed views have manifested themselves in the political controversies of the past two centuries, including such contemporary issues as welfare reform, social justice, and crime. Updated to include sweeping political changes since its first publication in 1987, this revised edition of A Conflict of Visions offers a convincing case that ethical and policy disputes circle around the disparity between both outlooks. In this work, Sowell introduces two phrases that will soon become part of the popular language: the constrained and unconstrained vision.

“You think your pain and your heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read. It was books that taught me that the things that tormented me most were the very things that connected me with all the people who were alive, or who had ever been alive.” JAMES BALDWIN “When I look back, I am so impressed again with the life-giving power of literature. If I were a young person today, trying to gain a sense of myself in the world, I would do that again by reading, just as I did when I was young.” MAYA ANGELOU


Bonnie St. John Getting Ahead At Work Without Leaving Your Family Behind "Juggling work and family? Stop before you drop" heralds Bonnie's book for people who see themselves as successful and wealthy, yet feel trapped. The problem: "successful careers are tearing families apart." Her solution: "Blending work and family." Bonnie interviewed over thirty people from the Olympics, Wall Street, the White House and other intensely competitive business or academic environments. "Those who had children and stayed sane", she points out, "couldn't talk about work without mentioning their children." She found that regardless of their profession, they all seemed to be saying the same things.

C. Vivian Stringer Standing Tall: A Memoir of Tragedy and Triumph Publication Date: March 3, 2009 At a time when heroes are too rare, C. Vivian Stringer sets a shining example. She has time and again shown character, fortitude, and heart, both on and off the hardwood, and in the face of unbearable loss. In Standing Tall, she shares her remarkable life story, inspiring us to find this fortitude within ourselves. “Work hard, and don’t look for excuses,” Stringer’s parents told her, “and you can achieve anything.” But her faith and perseverance would be tested many times. A gifted athlete, she had to fight for a place on an all-white cheerleading squad in the sixties. In 1981, just as her coaching career was taking off, her fourteen-month-old daughter, Nina, was stricken with spinal meningitis. Nina would never walk or talk again. Still grieving, Stringer brought a small, poor, historically black college to the national championships—a triumph hailed as “Hoosiers with an all-female cast.” In 1991, her husband, Bill—her staunchest supporter, the father of her children, and the love of her life—fell dead of a sudden heart attack, but that same year, she led yet another young team to the Final Four. Through these dark times and others—including her bout with cancer, shared here for the first time—Stringer has carried her burdens with grace. Given her history, it was no surprise that she led her team to respond to Don Imus’s slurs with dignity and courage. Standing Tall is a story of quiet strength in the face of punishing odds. Above all, it is an extraordinary love story—love for the game, for the players she has coached, for her close-knit family, and for the husband she lost far too soon. It will resonate long after the last page.

Bettye Collier Thomas A Treasury of African-American Christmas Stories: Volume 1 Publication Date: December 19, 2012 Christmas is an important time for celebration, reflection, and reunion in the black community. Grounded in the historical experiences of black people in this country, these stories are part of the AfricanAmerican storytelling tradition that has taken literary form. The Christmas theme is used somewhat as a pretext to explore larger issues in the African-American community, issues closely related to the concerns and dilemmas black people faced from 1890 to 1915.

Jacquelin Thomas Samson Publication Date: May 25, 2010 Samson Taylor has just been installed as assistant pastor at a thriving North Carolina church. He’s a man of God—and most definitely no saint. Handsome and charismatic, Samson is controlled by his lust for beautiful women, a weakness that stirs up trouble, heartache, betrayal, and damaging rumors—and soon costs him his marriage, his best friendship, and even his new job. Samson loves God and tries harder than ever to keep his temptations in check. Then he meets Delinda. . . . Beautiful, irresistibly sexy, and married to a famous NBA star, Delinda has Samson head-over-heels in love . . . in a dangerous affair that leads to a physical confrontation with Delinda’s husband. Now, the disgraced pastor begins a journey he could never have anticipated, where his heart is now his guide—not a heart of lust, but of new wisdom and a new kind of seeing. God will forgive Samson’s past—but will Samson himself be able to let go of bitterness and regret, and find a new light in his life? Inspired by the Biblical tale of Samson and Delilah, Jacquelin Thomas powerfully portrays a modern-day pastor’s dance with earthly desires . . . and the faith that made him whole.

It also includes fascinating insight into his involvement with the Nation of Islam as Louis Farrakhan's former son-in-law. Your image of what a "stonecold, cocaine-junkie-crackhead" looks like probably doesn't include an impeccably dressed, very professional and extremely articulate television anchor delivering your evening news.

Even as he interviewed kings and presidents, mayors and moguls, reported on disasters and major developments of all kinds, gathered and delivered the most exciting news stories from around the world-Frank's most shocking and powerful story was always his own. But it has never been told-until now. Come inside and follow this man's fascinating journey from abused little boy to "America's First Evangelical Anchorman."

Kenneth C. Ulmer Passionate God Many people envision God as a strict father figure—stern, detached, exacting and vengeful—lacking feelings and emotions. Yet, once we come to understand that God actually expresses a wide range of passion, we will relate to Him on a much more “human” level and start seeing Him for who He really is. In Passionate God, Kenneth Ulmer helps us understand and appreciate the “humanity” of God as expressed through His emotions: joy, sympathy, grief, care, laughter, jealousy, humor, anger and, of course, love. This book will change the way people view and relate to God because it reveals a Creator intimately involved with His beloved creation and is more like us than we ever imagined.

Joseph W. Walker III LeaderShifts: Mastering Transitions in Leadership & Life Publication Date: February 18, 2014 Our world isn’t slowing down, so only those who are willing to maneuver the tectonic cultural shifts will have sustainable ministry. From his extensive experience and using the biblical story of Joseph as an extended metaphor, Bishop Joseph Walker shares practical wisdom designed to help leaders reach out and equip their church to share a relevant Christian message. Joseph W. Walker III is bishop of Mount Zion Baptist Church of Nashville, Tennessee. Under his leadership and over a span of twenty years, the church has grown from 175 to more than 28,000 members. During this time, Bishop Walker has seen people struggle to embrace the new things God is doing; and he fully appreciates how change heightens the demands of leadership. Shifting approaches to follow where God leads can also mean that leaders have to risk confronting cherished tradition, which Bishop Paul Morton calls “frozen success.” But shifting to meet new opportunities is also a delicate balance that acknowledges history while also being sensitive to those loyal people who have sustained the organization to this point. Effective leadership does not impose new ideas upon old systems without a strategy that enables everyone in the organization moving forward together. It’s not simply, “out with the old and in with the new.” Successful organizations do not forget their history, but they commit themselves to using it as a bridge to propel them to their destiny.

Raphael G. Warnock The Divided Mind of the Black Church What is the true nature and mission of the church? Is its proper Christian purpose to save souls, or to transform the social order? This question is especially fraught when the church is one built by an enslaved people and formed, from its beginning, at the center of an oppressed community’s fight for personhood and freedom. Such is the central tension in the identity and mission of the black church in the United States. For decades the black church and black theology have held each other at arm’s length. Black theology has emphasized the role of Christian faith in addressing racism and other forms of oppression, arguing that Jesus urged his disciples to seek the freedom of all peoples. Meanwhile, the black church, even when focused on social concerns, has often emphasized personal piety rather than social protest. With the rising influence of white evangelicalism, biblical fundamentalism, and the prosperity gospel, the divide has become even more pronounced. In Piety or Protest, Raphael G. Warnock, Senior Pastor of the historic Ebenezer Baptist Church, the spiritual home of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.,traces the historical significance of the rise and development of black theology as an important conversation partner for the black church. Calling for honest dialogue between black and womanist theologians and black pastors, this fresh theological treatment demands a new look at the church’s essential mission.

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I’ve accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it’s a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it’s a way of making contact with someone else’s imagination after a day that’s all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.” NORA EPHRON

Relationship Reruns The 99 Males Who Make Your Life A Living Hell

W.C. Martin Small Town, Big Miracle: How Love Came to the Least of These (Focus on the Family Books) Publication Date: September 19, 2007 On one memorable day, while Bishop W. C. Martin and his wife, Donna, were in prayer together, God gave them a one-word message: “Adopt!” They were called to carry out literally James 1:27: “Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans . . . in their affliction.” Over the next five years, the Martins would adopt four kids, including two with special needs. And though they didn't make adoption a “cause” at that time, the members of their church of 200 soon caught the same vision. The church has now adopted 72 children and counting. Includes an 8-page black-and-white photo insert.

Bringing Down the House: How Young Men Who Mess Up Their Lives Can Make a Comeback

“Think before you speak. Read before you think.” FRAN LEBOWITZ


Daniella Whyte 365 Days of Thanking God Publication Date: November 17, 2010 This book is not about the holiday called Thanksgiving. It is not about how to celebrate Thanksgiving. This book is a challenge to you to cultivate a heart of thankfulness to God and to the people He has placed in your life 365 days of the year. Thankfulness is not about keeping tradition. It is a matter of the heart. It should be an everyday occurrence. It should be a habit; it should be a way of life. It may seem as though it is small or insignificant to you, but it means a lot to God and to others. I pray that this book will encourage you and challenge you to be thankful for everything. - Daniella Whyte, from the Introduction “You simply will not be the same person two months from now after consciously giving thanks each day for the abundance that exists in your life. And you will have set in motion an ancient spiritual law: the more you have and are grateful for, the more will be given you.” - Sarah ban Breathnach

“And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh.” ECCLESIASTES 12:12


Craig Steven Wilder Ebony and Ivy: Race, Slavery, and the Troubled History of America's Universities Publication Date: September 17, 2013 A 2006 report commissioned by Brown University revealed that institution’s complex and contested involvement in slavery—setting off a controversy that leapt from the ivory tower to make headlines across the country. But Brown’s troubling past was far from unique. In Ebony and Ivy, Craig Steven Wilder, a rising star in the profession of history, lays bare uncomfortable truths about race, slavery, and the American academy. Many of America’s revered colleges and universities—from Harvard, Yale, and Princeton to Rutgers, Williams College, and UNC—were soaked in the sweat, the tears, and sometimes the blood of people of color. The earliest academies proclaimed their mission to Christianize the savages of North America, and played a key role in white conquest. Later, the slave economy and higher education grew up together, each nurturing the other. Slavery funded colleges, built campuses, and paid the wages of professors. Enslaved Americans waited on faculty and students; academic leaders aggressively courted the support of slave owners and slave traders. Significantly, as Wilder shows, our leading universities, dependent on human bondage, became breeding grounds for the racist ideas that sustained them. Ebony and Ivy is a powerful and propulsive study and the first of its kind, revealing a history of oppression behind the institutions usually considered the cradle of liberal politics.

Something On the Inside

Walter E. Williams Up from the Projects: An Autobiography Publication Date: December 1, 2010 Nationally syndicated columnist and prolific author Walter E. Williams recalls some of the highlights and turning points of his life. From his lower middle class beginnings in a mixed but predominantly black neighborhood in West Philadelphia to his department chair at George Mason University, Williams tells an “only in America” story of a life of achievement. Williams describes the influences of his early years—such as the teachers who demanded his best efforts and made no excuses for him—and tells how his two years in the army became an important part of his maturation process, in spite of the racism he encountered. He recounts his early time getting established in Los Angeles—getting his B.A., going on to grad school at UCLA, and beginning his teaching career. And he tells how his subsequent move to the Urban Institute in Washington opened his eyes to how decisions are really made in D.C. When he recounts ultimately accepting his professorship appointment at George Mason University, the author marvels that “I never thought I’d be working there thirty years later.” And throughout the book, Willams refers to the immeasurable contribution of his wife of 48 years, who shared his vision through hard work and love.

Carter G. Woodson The Mis-Education of the Negro Publication Date: Tribeca Books (August 7, 2013) This book is considered must reading for anyone involved in the education of blacks living in white dominated countries. The author does well to point out the shortcomings of a Euro-centric teaching structure that leaves out consideration for black culture and heritage. This has resulted in blacks being truly mis-educated and has caused many to live in complete contradiction to their own best interests. Woodson outlines how and why the mainstream educational system destroys the personal growth of blacks and how the blame can be equally placed on black professionals -- those who become successful and then enter into a corporate world that helps only themselves, without making efforts to correct or align black education properly. This book strongly points out the importance of black history and culture, and its absence in mainstream educational systems.

Now Kerby Wilson finds himself held captive by his own pride and going down a very desperate path of his own. Distraught over the death of his parents and, the murder of a fellow police officer, Kerby alienates those closest to him, pushing them away-his wife, brother, police force buddies and old friends. As the bottom falls out of his life and darkness consumes his soul, he sells all that he holds dear for an elusive state of peace. Herby, Kerby's identical twin brother also known as Junior, is angry with Kerby for turning on his family, friends, and the police force and for going down this destructive path. As his heart hardens and he is caught up in his own battle of resentment and bitterness, he tries to shut Kerby out. But Rene, his Godfearing wife won't allow that to happen. Instead she continually appeals to his conscience, reminding him of God's unfailing love and Kerby's need for his help. After Kerby's latest antics, Junior and the rest of their family and friends are challenged to push past their struggles with Kerby's addiction to help him. Will Kerby accept the help of his family and friends? Will he stop running and turn to the only one who can save him and give him the power to stand against the gates of hell? This hope-filled story is one that gives a glimpse into the world of an addict and the struggles of those who love them and highlights the power of God's grace, love and forgiveness.
