Item description for Joshua and the Shepherd (Joshua Series V3) by Joseph Girzone...

From the author of Joshua, Joshua and the Children and Joshua and the City presents his latest addition ot the extraordinary Joshua series.

Publishers Description
With simple and profound prose, Joseph Girzone bringing to light incredible insights into modern Christianity and adds to his bestselling series with the story of the revolutionary Joshua in a contemporary setting.
It is the end of a bitter cold winter. A crowd of people files into a cathedral to celebrate the consecration of a new bishop--a good man, they think, strict in doctrine but capable of compassion. A man of tradition, not of reform. A "company man." His name is David Campbell.
And sitting in the last pew of the cathedral is a clean-shaven man of ordinary build, with gentle hazel eyes. His name is Joshua.
Within twenty-four hours of his first encounter with Joshua, David Campbell will propose the most far-reaching reforms in a millennium, reforms to destroy sectarian barriers, reforms to change the direction of the church, reforms to return Christianity to its founders with a simple message. With Joshua as his mentor, David Campbell--the Shepherd--preaches to Catholics, Protestants, Muslims, and Jews of the universal truth of God's love. It is a message that changes everyone it touches. And no one who reads "Joshua and the Shepherd" will ever forget it.

Reviews - What do customers think about Joshua and the Shepherd (Joshua Series V3)?

A Vision of Catholicism  Nov 13, 2005
Having read several of the other Joshua books, I can say this is the one I liked the least in the series. I disliked it not so much because of a poor story, because I did like the story. I was disappointed to see that Joshua does not make many appearances in this book. The book also seems more focused on changes Girzone sees as acceptable in the Catholic church. While I have little disagreement with anything the author promotes, the book just was not what I expected.

A hard-line dogmatic priest, David Campbell is elected to the status of bishop. Yet on the night of his installation into office, a dream in which Joshua appears encourages him to change his ways. The people are more important than the dogmatic views of the church. Rules can not always be applied because times changes the needs of the people and circumstances often require changes. Campbells sets out on an unlikely path that initiates radical change in the church with relative ease. Even more unlikely, Campbell attains the support of the pope. But even I could not believe the level of ascent the author puts David Campbell in as he ends this book.

Fans of this series will still enjoy this book. Truthfully, I enjoyed the book though I believe the author is far too idealistic in this book. I suppose this comes with the simple yet wonderful prose with which Joseph Girzone writes.
Another Great Book in the Joshua Series  Dec 10, 2002
I have read a few of these books and they never cease to surprise me! This book goes a little deeper into the social aspects of Catholicism, but still delivers it's message quite clearly! Joseph Girzone tells a wonderful story of a priest whose life is forever changed upon meeting Joshua. Perhaps the conclusion is a bit far-fetched and somewhat guessable, it is still a good read!
Joshua and the Shepherd  Apr 9, 2002
In short, I have read "Joshua" and now "Joshua & the Shepherd", and I was more inspired by "The Shepherd" than even "Joshua". It reinforced my own vision of what the Catholic Church can REALLY be like, and SHOULD be like, if only some things would change in the Church today. It has a wonderful ecumenical tone through it too. It was very hard to put down!
Strong ecumenical message  Mar 20, 2001
Like all of Joseph Girzone's books, Joshua and the Shepherd is extremely well written. It is easy to read (excellent prose), and Girzone weaves such a detailed story that it is hard not to get swept up in the flow of the story. This book is definitely a story about the universal love of Jesus (Joshua) for all of His creation. The book is definitely idealistic in its ecumenical storyline (different denominations establishing a strong single community), but Girzone does leave one with the impression that there is definitely hope for such a possibility if people truly listen to the Word. Overall, I liked the book. Being an advocate of ecumenism myself (though I must state that I would not want unity by sacrificing Truth) I could relate to this book and thougth the message was truly inspiring. My one problem with the book however was that at times, Girzone writes so simply, you feel as if the book was actually written for grade schoolers. Then again, perhaps it wouldn't be such a bad idea to expose children to this message (the one of ecumenism) anyways.
The BEST read  Nov 14, 1999
Joseph Girzone has written a fantistic story on how Jesus can, and does, touch each of our lives. We can all relate to the shepherd as he takes his journey through live. He goes from highs and lows, in and out of the desert. I thought it nearly impossible to write at story as good as the orginal Joshua. Girzone did it!
