Anthology/Christian Mainstream

In this groundbreaking anthology, three ministers take three nontraditional ways to convert sinners into believers. In “Lukewarm Saint” by K. L. Belvin, an educator battles two loves only to find he can’t serve two masters and must choose between the Lord or lust. Next in “Called Out of the Lines” by Maurice M. Gray, Jr., a pastor who can ball on the court at an NBA level must decide whether taking a high office truly is his calling or just a temptation to elevate himself for personal gain. Finally in “Follow the Leader” by Isaiah David Paul, a minister who used to lead a life of crime must help two new converts stay on the path of righteousness before all three of them stray by the wayside. There are many ways to the cross, and these Soldiers of the Cross are leading the way.

The Victor brothers are four young men who struggle with problems plaguing our youth today and growing up with a father who’s just starting to come around. Antwan becomes a teenage father at fifteen and has to learn how to become a man. Ashley is in denial about his addiction to alcohol, which is slowly tearing him apart. Rahliem is learning to balance his faith and learn anger management while incarcerated. Davon is learning to accept that love must start with loving himself. And their father Daunte must learn that being a father is more than planting seeds. These brothers and their father have to learn to get along and face their problems together. Isaiah David Paul is no stranger to controversy and raising awareness of social causes and he proves that by bringing back the debut title that started it all.

Second is a sixteen year old trying to find his biological father, a task made difficult from his mother’s past promiscuous behavior. Love is fighting for everyone to accept his biological father, the only man who has stepped to the plate to take on the responsibility. The twenty-something Hope does not want to grow up and their mother, Ankh is more interested in the boys learning about their African roots and finding ways to send her other son to college than attending to her sons’ every need. In the balance, Tyson must not only heal from his past hurts, but learn to love and trust God, again. In the story that combines the struggle to maintain one’s faith while growing up, Isaiah David Paul demonstrates why it’s not easy being a teen.

Josiah has to learn to stand up to his mother and end the mental, physical and sexual abuse he’s suffered at her hands. Looking for a way out, he begins to search for a real job, new apartment and a new walk with God.

Christian Suspense

Maria Rice has survived abuse and being orphaned at a young age and has lived to tell the tale. Her heavy heart can only heal when given the opportunity to be nurtured and she continues to allow unforgiveness and sin push her away from Christ. Her husband, Calvin, has goals and ambitions to become a great teacher while being the man he knows God has called him to be. The only obstacles in his way are his unruly students, a distrustful school administration and a broken home that seek to destroy him because he loves Christ. As Maria and Calvin seek a resolution for where they should go with their lives, saving their marriage may be the last thing on their minds.

The Word says what God has brought together let no man put asunder—but if they weren’t brought together by God, then are they better off just being apart?

What lies in the soul of a man? Love, laughter, heartache and sorrow? Pride, fear, rage and contentment? The true measure of a man lies in his heart and in his soul. Trials are measured and grounded by inner feelings and the expectations placed on them and they persevere. The weights of the world sometimes are carried on their shoulders. From socio-economic barriers, to racial tensions, broken hearts, to new found faith-experience the plight of man, as only he can explain it, told from his perspective and from his heart. Through expressions of the history of his past, the reality of his present, and the optimism of his future, these gifted men relate what stirs a man’s soul and ignites his actions and his thinking. Men the world over have always been much maligned and strident in how life portrays and prefaces their successes and failures. This collection of enlightening stories personifies the sentiment, faith, resilience and love embodied in the creation God made in His own image. The Soul of a Man is a Divine truth and an affirmation of the passion running through the minds of men where hearts and souls are bared. In continuation of the Triumph series, the second book, The Soul of a Man: A Triumph of My Soul Anthology, features these brilliant men; Joe Thomas, Jihad, William Fredrick Cooper, Alvin C. Romer, Marc Lacy, Maurice M. Gray, Jr., Brian Ganges, Jarold Imes, K.L. Belvin, Joey Pinkney, Thomas Ashburn, Jr., Clarence “Baba Simba” Mollock, Tyrell Floyd and Eddrick Dejuan.
