This book is not limited to shepherds but is addressed to all sheep who share the blessings of God's great gift to mankind. All shepherds have, by necessity, been are still are sheep. The pageant of life itself can teach great lessons if personal ambition and ego don't prevent the learning process. We all stand accountable to God for our individual roles. Who is to say that one member's job is less important than that of another? There is sheer peril when an individual thinks his life is more valuable to God than another. "Servant" is the highest rank for any member. Together we are to join hearts and hold each other securely in the flock while beckoning to others who do not have Christ.

Praise for Return to Sender

Grady Troute's book offers inspiration, insight and information. This is a book to be read over and over. It will encourage the Christian to live with a greater zest for the faith and hope brought into this world through Jesus Christ. - Dr. Virgil Trout.
