  • The Singing Shepherd

    The Singing Shepherd: A heroic tale inspired by David, hero king of Israel

    The Singing Shepherd has a familiar theme – a peaceful but self satisfied culture under attack by a ruthless foe bent on enslaving them. The people had made the mistake of trusting a dazzling leader who pleased himself first; his people last. The tale reacts angrily to the spirit if the present age whose monumental conceit has never been equaled in history; an age dangerously close to catastrophe. The book calls for rescue from a Source outside our conceit and closed systems. It is aimed at the present problems of our time.

He lives on the West Coast of Vancouver Island in the forests and ocean that inspired his book. He still builds and sails boats and participates in the ‘faith families’ you will find in his story.
