Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
—Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
In our broken and bleeding world, too much darkness and hatred remain. We are stumbling our way along, having abandoned rock-solid wisdom in favor of whatever, whenever, however we want it. Into this spiritual and moral void, Dr. Alveda King steps forth to light a candle and carry her uncle's enduring message of love, light, faith, and hope to the next generations.
King Rules is a call to walk out of darkness and back into light; it is also a compelling, tragedy-to-triumph personal testimony. Having been rescued from bitter despair and reawakened to faith in her own life, Alveda King offers a salve to our sickness—and she knows exactly where to look for healing: the timeless, unshakable values modeled by wise grandparents and parents.
