A street thriller of kidnapping, murder, trickery, and love that will have you at the edge of your seat. After 7 years of prison, multi-millionaire drug mogul Kane Garrett is back on the streets. But instead of diving back into the drug game, he’s teaching a college class, infusing business principles with his signature ruthless edge he developed in the streets. When a student—and heavy heroin dealer—named Basil catches Kane’s eye, Kane takes him on as a protégé and together, they build the biggest, smartest drug trafficking business the state has ever seen. But when Basil meets Moriah, Kane’s only daughter, lines get crossed and their dominant business union becomes a deadly rivalry. Welcome to a world where the kings meet their end and no one stays at the top for long. The crown always lies heavy on he who commands the streets—and Kane and Basil will fight to claim their rule, before power is toppled again, in The Streets Have No King by New York Times bestselling author JaQuavis Coleman.

NO ONE HAS SATIRIZED New York society quite like Dawn Powell, and in this classic novel she turns her sharp eye and stinging wit on the literary world, and "identifies every sort of publishing type with the patience of a pathologist removing organs for inspection." Frederick Olliver, an obscure historian and writer, is having an affair with the restively married, beautiful, and hugely successful playwright, Lyle Gaynor. Powell sets a see-saw in motion when Olliver is swept up by the tasteless publishing tycoon, Tyson Bricker, and his new book makes its way onto to the bestseller lists just as Lyle's Broadway career is coming apart.

Jesus and the Culture Wars: Reclaiming the Lord's Prayer is an in-depth look at the cultural unrest of Christ's time and now. From the radical feminization of our nation's boys to unholy alliances with militant Islam, American mainline denominations are leading the charge. They aren't the only ones on the wrong side of the culture wars, though. So were the Pharisees. What does it really mean to pray with Jesus 'Hallowed be Thy Name' or 'Lead Us not into Temptation' in a religious context as politically charged as the one we face today? Jesus and the Culture Wars offers a fresh perspective on the Lord's Prayer and a call to Christians everywhere to reclaim it from the religious authorities who have taken it hostage. Visit www.revcjconner.com to talk about Jesus and the Culture Wars 'Nothing could be more counter-cultural, and therefore imperative, than unwrapping each petition of the Lord's Prayer, one of the most powerful weapons in the Christian arsenal against post-modern and other errors. CJ Conner has accomplished this feat admirably.' Dr. Uwe Siemon-Netto, Ph.D., D.Litt. Concordia Seminary Institute on Lay Vocation, St. Louis
