#16: The Great Shepherd
The last few years have been chaos due to the pandemic and now economic instability for so many due to inflation and the cost increase of daily living. Dr. Jim Grassi, a master storyteller, addresses our need to find a place of calm in the midst of the rushing rivers of chaos that encircles our lives. Like he has done so effectively in other 17+ books, this short book provides truth with story so we can see ourselves in the story and becoming encouraged the more we read.
The book, as you can imagine, was written off of the iconic Psalm 23, The Lord is my shepherd…. Jim Mentions a classic point of encouragement: This was written by a Shepherd (David), who became a king to proclaim the King (God the Father) who became a shepherd (His son Jesus).
This is written as a gift book. It is nicely packaged and short, so you can read with your family, read for encouragement yourself and give as gifts to your loved ones and those going thru chaos. While Jim usually writes to men, this book is written from a Grandfather’s perspective, with compassion and encouragement that is fitting for any and all.
The people around you depend on family and friends to be the encouragement to them that you would like them to be for you.
It is available now and would be sent to you in time for Christmas gifts or general gifts of encouragement. It will also be available in Spanish in very early 2023 (not in time for Christmas).
