I received this email promoting The Shepherd’s Prayer a new Christmas novel revolving around the time of Jesus.
“A young man orphaned as a baby sets off to discover the truth about the circumstances of his birth, the fate of his parents, and his heritage. Having been raised in a culture where bloodlines mean everything, he seems forever condemned to live as an outsider on the fringes of society until he discovers hi true heritage. His only clue is a cryptic message on a lambskin blanket about a child born in a stable in Bethlehem. Who is this mysterious child? And what could such a child have to do with his own birth and destiny?”
Interestingly they are also making it available free as a live stream, mp3 audiobook, and PDF. Of course they also offer a hardcover of the same. I will listen to it next on my iPod after I have finished A Christmas Carol (also a free audiobook via LibriVox). So if you are looking for a Christmas gift that actually includes Christmas this might be it.
