In a small Georgia town where racial tensions run high and lives are at stake, can one lawyer stand up for justice against the tide of prejudice on every side? Adisa Johnson, a young African-American attorney, is living her dream of practicing law with a prestigious firm in downtown Atlanta. Then a split-second mistake changes the course of her career. Left with no other options, Adisa returns to her hometown where a few days earlier a white police officer shot an unarmed black teen who is now lying comatose in the hospital. Adisa is itching to jump into the fight as a special prosecutor, but feels pulled to do what she considers unthinkable—defend the officer. As the court case unfolds, everyone in the small community must confront their own prejudices. Caught in the middle, Adisa also tries to chart her way along a path complicated by her budding relationship with a charismatic young preacher who leads the local movement demanding the police officer answer for his crime. This highly relevant and gripping novel challenges us to ask what it means to forgive while seeking justice and to pursue reconciliation while loving others as ourselves.

The strength and power of the Holy Spirit always moves freely through those who have no other desire than to share the word of the Lord to hungry people. And make no mistake about it, God has much to say to His people. God has much He wants to communicate to the world around us. There is much to learn from the Bishop T.D. Jakes’ words, but also his method, his passion, and his love of the Lord Jesus. Strength to Stand equips you to meet the devil’s end-time onslaught to thwart the plan of God. In Strength to Stand, Bishop Jakes covers topics including: Who Is Your God? In Your Darkest Hour Asking Why? God’s School of the Spirit The Cold Kiss of a Calloused Heart Healing for Past Hurts The Only Safe Place Victorious Strength When economic troubles, family struggles, political upheavals, and natural disasters take center stage, you can rest assured with an inner peace that passes all understanding, that you have the power to victoriously live through it all. God’s master plan is to carry you to new and exciting heights of splendor, hope, and love.

Writing in response to our current “constitutional crisis,” New York Times bestselling author and Christian activist Jim Wallis urges America to return to the tenets of Jesus once again as the means to save us from the polarizing bitterness and anger of our tribal nation. In What About Jesus? Jim Wallis provides a path of spiritual healing and solidarity to help us heal the divide separating Americans today. Building on “Reclaiming Jesus”—the declaration he and other church leaders wrote in May 2018 to address America’s current crisis—Wallis argues that Christians have become disconnected from Jesus and need to revisit their spiritual foundations. By pointing to eight questions Jesus asked or is asked, Wallis provides a means to measure whether we are truly aligned with the moral and spiritual foundations of our Christian faith. “Christians have often remembered, re-discovered, and returned to their obedient discipleship of Jesus Christ—both personal and public—in times of trouble. It’s called coming home,” Wallis reminds us. While he addresses the dividing lines and dangers facing our nation, the religious and cultural commentator’s focus isn’t politics; it’s faith. As he has done throughout his career, Wallis offers comfort, empathy, and a practical roadmap. What About Jesus? is a constructive field guide for all those involved in resistance and renewal initiatives in faith communities in the post-2016 political context.

Adam’s father is a time-travel taxi driver for Chronos Travel, chauffeuring passengers forwards and backwards in time. For Adam, time-travelling with his father is normal—boring, even. As far as Adam is concerned, he leads a normal life. He cycles with his friend, Don, or they both hang out at the skate park with Roslyn, eating ice creams, texting, and instant messaging. In September, the three friends were going to go back to school and continue their normal lives, like normal fourteen-year-olds do. All that is about to change. Frightened and desperate, Evelyn Walker runs into the time taxi seeking Adam’s help. In his moment of indecision, she is arrested. Unable to forget her, Adam searches for Evelyn, not knowing that if he finds her again, everything he once considered normal—his life, his friends, and even his world—could be changed forever. In this science-fiction tale, two teenagers embark on a dangerous adventure through time and uncover a shocking truth about mankind that will cause them to question everything they have ever known about themselves.
