Product Description

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. Hardcover.

Publisher's Description

In King Rules, the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. shares that message in a deeply personal collection of hard-learned lessons, timeless truths, and foundational principles.

Dr. Alveda King’s words are lovingly crafted yet refreshingly blunt at a time when bluntness is needed to counter the forces of moral drift and empty relativism.

Beginning with a vulnerable admission of her own wounds and wanderings, Alveda unfolds eleven core values that have guided her family through generations of triumph and tragedy—and have played a pivotal role in fostering revolutionary change in society.

Out of a heart of compassion, she dispenses wise meditations on bedrock subjects including faith and family, peace and justice, education and civic life. With thoughtful conviction she also boldly tackles topics considered divisive in our postmodern world, from abortion and sexuality to gun control and marriage laws. 

The King Rules is a page-turning narrative that blends eyewitness history with grandmotherly wisdom. And as J. C. Watts writes in the Foreword, the book is “more than Alveda’s story, it’s an account of the beliefs that redirected the course of a nation, that left us a legacy, and that hopefully will guide us again.”

    I truly enjoyed the book. I only wished that I had read this when I started my own family. Growing up in a home where there were no feelings of security or foundation I longed for this type of family and values as a young girl. The book gives wonderful insights on what it would have been like to have had the wonderful opportunity to have been part of a family where there was love and repect for each other.

    I read a review where someone was dissapointed about the book not telling how to make money; this book is full of gold nuggets. There is bits of pure gold in the book which is worth more than money. I am so happy that the author shared something so precious with everyone. Thank you.

    When I thought of downloading and reviewing this book, I thought I was going to be getting a lot of business insights and tips on how to make wealth and prosper. I thought that by the end of the book, I would have gotten to practice a lot of tips and made some money. My thoughts have remained as only thoughts.

    I was initially disappointed when I began reading the book, it didn't seem to unfold what the cover had presented. But I read on anyway, out of discipline. There were some good stories about the King's family and the values that they embraced. Some of these values are such as human compassion, dignity, and agape love to all human beings while embracing a biblical worldview for life, love, marriage, and family.

    The author also offers some rules for living, such as the following: making home a priority, serving one's family, getting a good education, guard one's heart and caring for the needy.

    While those are good values, it is my thinking that if the author intended to write a biography of Martin Luther King's life and family, she should have chosen a different title, one that would not misrepresent or contradict what is portrayed on the cover. This was my first let-down in a long, long time.
