I tweeted of my horrible day of rewriting this book description (think back cover), and I had two kind offers for a rewrite. One promised to improve it if the topic got changed to zombies. Another said he’d rewrite it to be a secular fiction piece of atheist triumph. I’ll take both offers. Anyone else want to work on it? I can’t see past the blurred vision.
The Wayward Shepherd
Rev. Ellis Channing is a confident, idealistic, and inspiring pastor at his large suburban church. When his son’s atheist girlfriend, Claire Kelly, lands pregnant on their doorstep, his gift for bold leadership drives his downfall. Ellis vows to to turn the family crisis into a Christian success story by saving the baby, leading its mother to God, and marrying the young couple. He doesn’t notice that his righteous agenda is undermining his faith until the threatened and trapped Claire crafts her own plan. Will Ellis surrender his ego-driven motives and seek the truth before her scheme destroys his family?
And here, why not give you the elevator pitch as well.
