Ringgold Author Releases Old Western Novel

Wednesday, December 11, 2013

Author D. Keith Jones announced the release of his new Western fiction, “Sheriff Adonai,” the story of a young man, Misief (Mee-Sef), and his journey to stay one step ahead of a sheriff, a stranger and a broken past that is constantly pursuing him.

Set in the Old West, the story introduces readers to Misief, who struggles to survive in the unforgiving Western wilderness after losing it all as a young boy.

Later, he meets Nainsi, the girl of his dreams, who wonders if she can convince him to give up his old ways or whether will his past forever destroy any hope of a bright future. Will he surrender his fight, or will he follow in the footsteps of those before him? Readers will laugh, cry, cheer and ultimately answer the question, “is it worth it to surrender?” as Mr. Jones masterfully weaves the events in the Old West in his new novel, “Sherrif Adonai.”

Mr. Jones is a motivational speaker, author, and senior pastor at Rock Pointe church in Fort Oglethorpe. He served as assistant vice president at a Fortune 200 company before dedicating his life to full time ministry. Involved in prison ministry, he has taught leadership development to inmates in the Georgia Department of Corrections.
