Why “The Andromeda Evolution” is a Must Read for 2020!

  In 1969, Michael Crichton published a techno-thriller entitled The Andromeda Strain. The novel, which became a worldwide hit, featured an alien virus which behaved in unexpected ways and threatened the existence of life itself on Planet Earth.

Blessings to you, my fellow shepherds!

“I am the Good Shepherd, and I know my own, and my own know me.” – John 10:14
