Lambs in the Wilderness

Within the pages of Maureen Anderson’s new book, Lambs in the Wilderness, ($9.99, paperback, 9781498442381; $4.99, e-book, 9781498442398) readers will join four misfit dogs who are commanded by the Good Shepherd to bring a flock of little lambs to His Father’s mansion on Eternal Mountain. The dogs must venture through Fearsome Forest and defend the lambs against Slinky Slick, the hungry mountain lion. Children and their parents will see scripture in action, as the Lord guides the dogs and flock toward their destination. Geared toward readers in grades two through eight, the book includes embedded Biblical passages, vocabulary-building phrasing, and detailed illustrations.

“The book is a wonderful tool for showing children how the Lord loves them just as they are, and how He will enable them to fulfill their destinies in Christ,” states the author. “They will see that the Lord is always faithful. The illustrator and I are just unremarkable, everyday Christians who desire to honor Him.”
