“Seeds of Faith: A Story of Christ's Love and Redemption in a Small Town”: a captivating tale of salvation, forgiveness, and transformation. Set in 1977 “Seeds of Faith: A Story of Christ's Love and Redemption in a Small Town” is the creation of published author Howard C. Duryea, a writer who worked as a medical civilian contractor at Fort Drum military base for many years. He currently lives with his wife, Elizabeth, in a small town in northeastern Pennsylvania.

Duryea shares, “Most Christians, and even some non-Christians, know the parable of the Sower of the Seeds. Jesus told this parable to a crowd of people who were following him.

“In Seeds of Faith you will see, through the life of one pastor named Larry Ballholland and a young man named Matthew, how the gospel is spread to the many colorful characters who live in a small town in northern New York. You will follow these characters through their numerous, joyous and sorrowful experiences; from eel fishing on Lake Ontario to struggling with sobriety to the bonds of friendship and how one tragedy changed many lives in the small town of Beaumont.

“Although the town and characters are fictitious, the reactions the inhabitants have to the presentation of the gospel of Jesus Christ are similar to those the author has witnessed throughout his Christian life. As you read this book try to determine which type of soil; hard, stony, thorny or good soil, the seeds of faith, the gospel, falls on as it is presented to the different characters in the book.

“It is hoped that through reading Seeds of Faith, you will have a broadened understanding of how a person may receive the good news of forgiveness of sin and offer of salvation through a belief and trust in Jesus Christ. This story also shows how the saving grace of Jesus Christ comforts and transforms the people of this small town. You will see how the Holy Spirit can take the hard soil of a person’s heart and eventually cultivate it into good soil with good depth resulting in a faithful, fruitful Christian life thereafter.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Howard C. Duryea’s new book is a wonderful creation that is filled with pages of tales where readers will find a reflection of the power of God and His grace as He guides the people of Beaumont.
