Dikran's journey to an unforgettable ministry will inspire all to reach higher
GLENDORA, Calif. (PRWEB) May 23, 2018
Everyone loves a dog story that involves overcoming tremendous odds and “soaring on wings like eagles.”
Within the pages of The Story of Dikran ($15.49, paperback, 9781545618523; $7.99, e-book, 9781545620175), readers will be inspired by the miraculous true story of Dikran, an abandoned, starved and disfigured Armenian Gampr dog that was a one-third sized runt.
“The story follows his life from his rescue and trip to America to his unique and unforgettable ministry,” David Guild says. “Everyone can relate to having some kind of hardship, struggle, and doubt in their lives. This book will give hope and inspiration to all who open its cover, and show every person that God has a wonderful plan for them.”
The story of Dikran is told through the life of Benjamin, a fictitious 10-year-old boy who was adopted into a family that includes Rebecca, his 12-year-old sister, and Brenda, his mom. Ben is small for his age, does poorly in school and does not believe in God.
At the end of each school year, Ben and his family go to visit his grandparents at their farm in the country. Ben loves the farm life and the biggest thrill happens every evening after supper when Grandpa tells Benjamin and Rebecca a story. This year the story will be about a dog and it will take the whole week to tell. As Dikran’s fantastic story unfolds, Ben falls in love with a dog that he is able to identify with on a deeply personal level. Ultimately, Ben must deal with his own past as well as his beliefs about God.
“Dikran's journey to an unforgettable ministry will inspire all to reach higher,” the author states. “The Story of Dikran is a true story that points to Jesus Christ and the Bible every step of the way. It is a story of salvation, adoption, healing, trusting, and ultimately living a life of ministry.”
