Minister-turned-author signs copies of new book

PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT) – Neighbors can now read about a local minister's time spent as a child abuse investigator.

The Greene County Library hosted a book signing event Saturday for William "Chris" Shelton.

Shelton wrote a new book entitled, "It's Okay, You're With My Father: A Child Abuse Investigator's Call to the Church."

Shelton says the book took about a week to write, but he hopes that it can help break the cycle of abuse that he saw during his stint as a special agent.

"The biggest thing I hope people come away with this is that there is an opportunity for the church to be involved and make a difference not by judging people but by loving on them and providing an opportunity where God can heal," he said.

Shelton says the book is now available at most major retailers and online.

Each copy costs $10, but he has also donated copies to many of the local libraries.
