Kai'Ro, after finding the life and freedom he went searching for at the Cross, The King sends him back to the City of Doom as an ambassador of hope. 

He returns, haunted by past failures, an awareness of ruined relationships, and the damage he caused during his former life.  He hopes that his transformed life and the power of the King can be used to rescue his community and friends from destruction.  Kai'Ro quickly sets out to renew trust and offer hope to his former girlfriend, Evangeline. More than anything he longs for her to find life in the King. 

Within days of his return, Kai'Ro is confronted with vicious persecution, temptation and the hardened cynicism of family and friends who knew the old Kai'Ro.  He discovers the cost of discipleship as well as the struggles that accompany shining the light of the King into the darkest of circumstances. 

Evangeline, challenged by the new Kai'Ro, sets out for the Heavenly Highway hoping the King can restore her broken life too.

About the author (2013)

JUDAH BEN has been involved with urban youth since his family moved to Birmingham, Alabama in the early '90s. His vision for urban ministry was birthed while working on his undergraduate degree at Wheaton College. For over two years he met weekly with youth incarcerated in the Cook County Juvenile Detention Center in Chicago. Upon graduating in 2000, he returned home to teach at Restoration Academy, an urban Christian School in Fairfield, Alabama seeking to rescue youth from the lure of the streets. The school has since become a place where strong academics, competitive athletics, and a caring faculty empower students to graduate from high school, attend college, and begin a life of hope and promise. Judah Ben earned a Masters Degree at Covenant College and is now an administrator at Restoration Academy. He and his wife and four children make their home in the neighborhood.
