Dave, I tried several years ago to help shelfari look at something more dynamic to get it into the schools more but there was no interest. Someone has come along and figured out something for kids along the line that I was trying to persuade shelfari to take.
Hi, Dave. I’m the author of The Sandal Maker, a new novel about the public ministry of Jesus from a unique point of view, a little controversial at times. It’s a story that will take you on a fascinating journey in first century Galilee. A “must read” for those on a spiritual quest. You can read reviews at Amazon.com. I’m including here the publisher's notes. Let me know what you think.
In 70 A.D., a father and daughter risk their lives traveling through a war torn, Galilean countryside on a mission to reach Jerusalem, a fascinating journey that will change their destinies forever. Caleb, an elderly Jew, leaves the safety of his home in Cana on a mission to find a man he believes is in Jerusalem. Miriam, Caleb's only remaining child, accompanies him disguised as a boy. In the desolation of the war struck Galilean countryside, father and daughter risk their lives to journey south on the Jordan River trail. As they walk, Caleb intrigues Miriam with a captivating story of his youth that will change her future destiny. A story of a time forty years prior when he became a sandal maker in order to observe a man some called the Miracle Worker. Caleb secretly kept notes of the events he saw and heard as he followed the crowds. With his objective, skeptical point of view, he reveals the fascinating ministry of the one he called the "Master." Heart pounding perils and the threat of death endanger the two travelers, but nothing could foretell the fate awaiting them in Jerusalem!
From the Publisher
A. Michaelson's new novel, The Sandal Maker, takes the reader on a fascinating journey back to the year 70 A.D. in worn torn Palestine. The author creatively weaves two stories together, one in the present, the other in the past. Heartwarming, enlightening and tragic, The Sandal Maker paints a portrait of one man's life and his involvement in how the gospel came to be.
Yes, I was logged in to Shelfari, I have Internet Explorer, not sure which version, but it is 2 years old and 4.00 KB. Earlier today when I tried again, there was a step with buttons for the various blog sites of which one was Blogger. I clicked it--it took me to the step to select the books I wanted displayed--and there I stayed no matter how many times I clicked on continue. Now when I try it again, I do not get that screen with the Blog sites at all. I am about to give up. Library Thing loaded immediately. I will probably go back to them.
Thanks for posting on my blog! I also got an e-mail from Amanda Sshauffer. She said the widget developer is working on the problem. I tried again this evening to do this and the problem persists. I am following the instructions and trying to add from the "my widgets" under "My Profile". I still get stuck on the same step. When I first tried this evening, there was a new screen that let me indicate which blog service I was using. I chose blogger, but still got stuck on that second step. In short: problem not solved!
