Shepherd’s Salvation - Rise of Humanity

Category: Books

Living on his family’s farm in Nebraska, John Shepherd and his wife Jackie know humanity’s days are numbered. Despite battling with depression and the tragic end of his military career, John’s fighter-pilot spirit is strong, and he can’t afford to stand by and watch an unbelieving world as they face a global disaster that is less than three years away. With dreams haunted by images of war, and now by a divine calling, he knows that his Maker is counting on him to build a colossal craft capable of carrying its passengers through space on an uncertain trek in search of a new home. Failure at any stage will lead to cataclysmic death, but John can’t give in to fear, with the horrors of Earth’s destruction hurtling toward mankind with inescapable vengeance. Travel with John as he sets out on an unpopular, righteous path to build a lifeboat for a select few—human, plant, and animal—to journey through space on an epic pilgrimage. Will he be able to convince a blind world that he can offer salvation from the apocalypse? Rise of Humanity is the first book in the Shepherd’s Salvation saga.
