When looking for a background for a novel on leaders, followers, human groups, manipulation and especially on opportunities to make a fresh start I found my background was in the Evangelical church and groups in Argentina. As I made a soul search of my good and bad experiences there I found there was abundant material that I could also relate to my life as a citizen of this country. I started without a plot in mind and found in an eerie way that the characters took life and led me down their pathways. During my review I found the story is based on parallels and contrasts, especially considering the two protagonists, pastors Terrero and Cristante. The idea of a second chance is critical, both for leaders and followers but especially for the relationship between both and this naturally extends to all human groups.
Although it would appear to be a Christian book addressed to Christians, I believe it can be just as interesting and thought-provoking for non-Christians since much of what happens in churches and religious groups has more to do with our common humanness than with faith or religion as such.
- The book was launched simultaneously in English and Spanish (Pastor Pastor - Apacienta mis ovejas)
