“The Christmas story is always relevant. My desire is to put you into the story, not just listen to the story."

Within the pages of Nancy Herzing’s new book, The Night the Angels Came – The Shepherd’s Story ($19.99, paperback, 978-1-62419-373-6; $9.99, e-book, 978-1-62419-374-3) readers will experience the re-telling of the nativity story from a little shepherd boy’s point of view. The author explains a simple, yet meaningful point to her story: “[The shepherds] were just like us. They were regular people that heard God’s calling and chose to be obedient.”

“The Christmas story is always relevant,” states the author. “My desire is to put you into the story, not just listen to the story. It is a story that children and adults can relate to as they open the pages and imagine they are sitting by the fire alongside the shepherds on that very special night.”

Of her expertise, the author expresses “I believe the people in the Bible were real people and I want to humanize them and make them more approachable. As a mother and a grandmother, [I] realize that our actions and deeds help shape the character of all those little ones around us. This book offers a unique and fresh perspective on the Christmas story.” Nancy Herzing is currently a business manager of Mt. Vernon City Schools in Mt. Vernon, IL. Writing is her creative outlet.
