New book to be featured at this year’s American Library Association Annual Book Exhibit in New Orleans, LA

From author Richard Foster comes a riveting tale that will make readers think. Drawing inspiration from Biblical stories, he has created an interesting “what if” story about The Loneliest Shepherd.

This book deals with choices and how making bad choices can affect just about every aspect of one’s life. At the birth of Jesus the author wondered who it was among the shepherds that had to stay behind and watch the sheep. He wondered how that might affect that person’s life, what his life might turn out to be like and where he might end up. Though purely fictional, The Loneliest Shepherd has true accounts from the Bible around which Foster has created a “what if” story to put into perspective just how critical making the right choices really is.

A fascinating read about the choices people make and how those choices affect them immediately and all along their life journey, The Loneliest Shepherd will make readers think more deeply about life than they ever have before.

This book will be featured at the 2011 American Library Association Annual Book Exhibit in New Orleans, LA on June 24-27, 2011. For more information on The Loneliest Shepherd, interested parties may log on to
