" A unique and essential feature of “To Curse the Root” is Rev. Sheppard''s anointed teaching gift that simplistically unfolds her spiritual scholarship to the average Christian layman, in such a way as to stir up a hunger for the word of God, causing the scriptures in the Bible to come alive. Those who have sat under her ministry or who have heard her audio messages on the website can attest to this truth about her anointing to teach. As both a preacher, a teacher, a pastor, a counselor and since 1996 an author, Rev. Sheppard boldly explores a theme rarely touched upon in Christiandom: the invisible conflict which is fought daily in the spiritual realm.
In this the second edition of her first book on the subject, Rev. Sheppard explores an area of biblical truth for many readers who may never have considered the invisible forces, --- God, Satan, angels, and demons----fully at work in their everyday struggles to be set free from strongholds and bondages of all kinds.
In this, her first book on the subject, emphasis is centered on how these invisible spiritual forces impact upon bondages of the soul in general, and the addictions, in particular.
Never minimizing nor negating the value of the sobriety that 12 Step Programs have provided to those who were in a lifeline, Rev. Sheppard presents an alternative model,---Recovery In Christ (the RIC Program)---
for those who have truly become “born again” and who look to Jesus Christ as their Savior, their Lord and their God and not as “a higher power” among other powers. Not only for the addict, within these pages, the reader in search of spiritual growth will also find answers to questions concerning personal trials, tribulations and troubles, with helpful insights and strategies for victorious Christian living.
Other books by Rev. Sheppard include “The Making of a Prophet: A Spiritual Indictment to the Organized Church” published by Author House in June, 2005 and her soon to be released third book called “Faces of the Religious Demon.”"
