The perspective of Psalm 23 is brought forward so beautifully through the eyes of the author who was a former sheep farmer. Never before have I had such a detailed understanding of what God is saying to His people and there is really no way to fully grasp the meaning of this Scripture unless you know what is entailed taking care of sheep as their shepherd. The author has assigned a chapter to each verse and gives a very insightful lesson of his perspective as the role of a shepherd.
This book has changed my life and my understanding concerning the role of the pastor and his congregation. I read to a group of residents at a local nursing home each weekday and recently took a train trip across country and a couple of the residents took care of the reading to the group while I was away. A visitor shared this book with the group, which they were well into when I returned. We read through the book twice, my husband read through it twice, and we bought four new books to share with others. I'm so glad to have found this beautiful little book.
Do yourself a favor and buy a new hardcover. The mass production paperback is very small print and harder to read. Enjoy!
