Philip Bones is a fearless warrior — one who never acknowledges the possibility of defeat.
As a juvenile probation officer, the young man is constantly engaged in spiritual warfare.

But there’s more to Mr. Bones than being a courthouse pigeon. God has burdened his heart to transform the lives of anger-driven, rebellious juvenile delinquents.

More often than not, the wayward youths he sets out to save have no intentions of ever escaping their paths to self-destruction.

Alden Wamboldt, his newest client, is a great example. The thirteen-year-old got himself into legal trouble by assaulting his grandmother with a baseball bat. Who does that? The boy shows no remorse. How dare his grandma confiscate his cell phone!

Motivating Alden to overcome his anger outbursts is going to be a HUGE undertaking. Everyone who knows the teen expects him to either wind up behind bars or in an early grave.

Regardless of what anyone else thinks, Philip Bones is determined his client can beat the odds. Through unorthodox methods, acts of self-sacrifice, and plenty of tough-love, he’s certain he can make a difference.

Mr. Bones might not be able to change the world, but he can make an impact — one teenage criminal at a time.

Ain’t nobody gonna tell Billy Andrews what to do!
At fourteen, he’s practically a grown man — no matter what his momma says!
He wouldn’t have gotten arrested if it weren’t for his skin color.

Any white guy could have pickpocketed that off-duty police officer and gotten away with a slap on the wrist. But no, because he was born an African American, he had to take a ride in the back of a police cruiser like he was some kind of a thug.

Now he’s expected to answer to an egotistical, pale-skinned, racist probation officer named Mr. Bones.

Mr. Bones can’t relate to him. Other than the fact that they both live in the city, they have absolutely nothing in common. Mr. Bones didn’t come from a broken home. He wasn’t raised by a single parent. The man has white privilege written all over him.

As if things aren’t already bad enough, the heartless probation officer supposedly wants to mentor Billy in his down time. Like a mentorship’s going to convince him to stop stealing!

Redirecting Billy, the second book in the Worthy Battle series, is a clean, inspirational Christian novel about struggle and redemption.
