New Xulon Book Shares True, Astonishing Stories that Point to God

Shephard coaches readers on remaining spiritually grounded when facing trials

MAITLAND, Fla., Jan. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Within the pages of Keith Shephard's new book, FAITH: From Apostolic Into True Hope ($9.99, paperback, 9781625094704; $4.99, e-book, 9781625094711) the author writes in a conversational, simple and down-to-earth style. He describes his journey from a traditional church upbringing, within a specific denomination, and how he eventually graduated from ordinary spiritual roots into coming to know Jesus Christ as personal Savior. Shephard emphasizes, "It's not where you came from, but its about where are you headed," referring to the various Christian and non-Christian denominations and doctrines that the majority of people have been raised in. Additionally, this book is the author's way of encouraging anyone who is facing adversity and introducing readers to the "true hope" that he has personally discovered in Christ.


"There are things in your life that you will never be able to change. But with God's grace and help, things can change," states the author. "The world needs to know that the emptiness in us all can only be filled and [be made] complete by Jesus."

Keith Shephard was born the second out of six children. He grew up in a Christian home and had two hardworking parents. God has been the center of the author's life ever since he could remember. He adds, "What makes me sad is when I see people [that] I love and grew up with, they don't serve God or attend church. Why? Because they were hurt, confused, betrayed, by [those] whom they thought was his or her closest friend. This is what inspired me to write this book; to encourage, strengthen, help and reconfirm that God is faithful and just, to heal the pain that so many people have. This [book] is a must-read for everyone!"
