Críticas:

"Authors Betsy Duffey and Laurie Myers will engage your heart as you follow Kate McConnell's handwritten copy of Psalm 23 on its journey through the lives of twelve heart-sick people before landing back in the hands of the son for whom it was originally intended. Fast-paced, without rushing their readers, they skillfully bring into view the Good Shepherd who is able to strengthen the weak, bind up the injured, and bring back the lost (Ezekiel 34:4-6). This book claims to tell of twelve changed lives. Make that thirteen--mine."--Jani Ortlund, Author of Fearlessly Feminine, Executive Vice President, Renewal Ministries

"The Shepherd's Song is a powerful collection of stories interconnected by a single force which has power and strength. Read this fascinating book as seemingly disparate lives are interconnected, not by chance, but by a singular expression of a powerful portion of the word of God. Prepare for your life to be blessed as you read this wonderful book."--Frank S. Page, Ph.D., President & CEO, Southern BaptistConvention Executive Committee

"The Shepherd's Song is about an uncommon piece of paper that encircles the globe, providentially changing lives--including the reader's. The message is sutured into the reader's psyche by the masterful use of metaphors, irony, and a never-ending roller coaster of emotions. This single fabric of short stories would make a great movie by an all-star cast."--Stanley D. Williams, PhD, Film Producer-Director, Author of The Moral Premise

"One of the most unusual and delightful novels I have ever read."--Jennifer Rees Larcombe

"This is not at all the type of book I would normally read, yet I found it remarkably compelling from the outset. Rarely have I read a novel which so poignantly juxtaposes tragedy with hope without becoming excessively sentimental or mawkish. It is an effortless read, but not an easy one--harrowing and uplifting by turns, it is impossible not to be moved by its artlessly engaging narrative. The characters are believable and likeable, each one deftly painted with a few expert strokes. The chain of connected storylines convincingly shows how one simple and apparently futile act of love can release a deluge of redemption and reconciliation. It is sure to challenge the assumptions of readers with a religious faith and those without. I loved it."--Jill Hudson, author of The Last Queen of Sheba

Reseña del editor:

Follow the incredible journey of one piece of paper--a copy of Psalm 23--as it travels around the world, linking lives and hearts with its simple but beautiful message.
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures...
Shortly before a tragic car accident, Kate McConnell wrote down the powerful words of Psalm 23 on a piece of paper for her wayward son. Just before she loses consciousness, Kate wonders if she's done enough with her life and prays,"Please, let my life count."
Unbeknownst to Kate, her handwritten copy of Psalm 23 soon begins a remarkable journey around the world. From a lonely dry cleaning employee to a soldier wounded in Iraq, to a young Kurdish girl fleeing her country, to a Kenyan runner in the Rome Invitational Marathon, this humble message forever changes the lives of twelve very different people. Eventually, Kate's paper makes it back to its starting place, and she discovers the unexpected ways that God changes lives, even through the smallest gestures.
With beautiful prose evocative of master storyteller Andy Andrews's The Butterfly Effect, this "intriguing...[and] inspiring read" (RT Book Reviews) will touch your heart and remind you of the ways God works through us to reach beyond what we can imagine.
