DENVER, Colo., November 20 /Christian Newswire/ -- Christmas is little more than a month away! Shoppers are already preparing to find the best savings on gifts for Christmas. Yet often so many do so little to prepare their hearts for the birth of The Savior. A new Free Advent Study Guide, in conjunction with author Richard Barry's book The Shepherds' Prayer, is sure to help keep Christ the focus this Christmas.

The Shepherds' Prayer is a story about a young man orphaned as a baby who sets off to discover the truth about the circumstances of his birth, the fate of his parents and his heritage. Having been raised in a culture where bloodlines mean everything, he seems forever condemned to live as an outsider on the fringes of society until he discovers his true heritage. His only clue is a cryptic message on a lambskin blanket about a child born in a stable in Bethlehem. Who is this mysterious child? And what could such a child have to do with his own birth and destiny? The answers will change his life forever…and maybe yours.

The Shepherds' Prayer four-week study guide offers the opportunity to quiet our busy lives and dwell on the events of that first Blessed Night more than 2,000 years ago. Those to first hear the Good News of the Birth of Christ were the Shepherds – those with the lowliest jobs of tending to the sheep in the fields. How did that one night impact the rest of their lives? Search for Christ this season and see how finding Him can change your life!

Perfect for families who want to spend special time together during Advent and church and bible study groups looking for a seasonal reflection. The Advent study guides are author Richard Barry's gift to you. Visit www.ChristmasBook.com to download your FREE study guide. You can also purchase extra copies of The Shepherds' Prayer. Special bulk rates available for parish groups.
