The Shepherd’s Prayer by Richard Barry
Written by Richard M. Barry, The Shepherds’ Prayer is about a young man named Anam. Thirty years after he was orphaned in the tragic Slaughter of the Innocents he returns to Bethlehem on a quest to discover his parents’ identity. 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 Anam’s own birth and destiny? Through a providential encounter with a small band of shepherds, the young man comes to realize that his quest has little to do with his ancestry—and everything to do with his soul.
