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.

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 Kings 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 tragedyand 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 Alvedas story, its an account of the beliefs that redirected the course of a nation, that left us a legacy, and that hopefully will guide us again.
