Publisher's Summary

Weary travelers. You've seen them - everything they own crammed into their luggage. Staggering through terminals and hotel lobbies with overstuffed suitcases, trunks, duffels, and backpacks. Backs ache. Feet burn. Eyelids droop. We've all seen people like that. At times we are people like that - if not with our physical luggage then at least with our spiritual load. We all lug loads we were never intended to carry. Fear. Worry. Discontent. No wonder we get so weary. We're worn out from carrying that excess baggage. Wouldn't it be nice to lose some of those bags?

That's the invitation of Max Lucado. With the Twenty-Third Psalm as our guide, let's release some of the burdens we were never intended to bear. Using these verses as a guide, Max Lucado walks us through a helpful inventory of our burdens. May God use this psalm to remind you to release the burdens you were never meant to bear.

Excellent thoughts on Psalm 23!

I had forgotten how much I enjoyed Max Lucado years ago and now with audio books I am delving back into his works and getting caught up. He has a way of giving understandable examples from life to explain some of the deeper truths in scripture. I plan to try to get my wife and son to read this book now too.

Nobody says the truth like Max Lucado

What made the experience of listening to Traveling Light the most enjoyable?

The content, the narrator, and the gentle quiet manner.

What does Ben Holland bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He reads in a way I wouldn't have interpreted

Great Book and Great Listen

I always thought Psalm 23 was a calming psalm and I often say it before I go to bed at night, after the Lord's prayer. After reading this book, Traveling Light, my eyes have been opened to Psalm 23 being a psalm that is meant to lead you through day to day life. Mr. Lucado uses each verse of Psalm 23 and applies it to day to day struggles to show you how you can use this Psalm to address day to day worries, concerns. Showing you that David wrote this to honor God in his life and thank Him for shepherding him. David is thanking God for being his shepherd. The narration is wonderful.

A new understanding of Psalm 23 .

I used to have a feeling that Psalm 23 was something you only heard at funerals, that the passages had to do with death . But I learned through this book about how much it has to do with life .
Max Lucado lead me through various emotions on the way to the conclusion . I have an entirely different viewpoint of this psalm now , as it now leads to hope and joy, with the discarding of the baggage of this world .

extremely encouraging and inspirational

First of all, the narrator was excellent at reading the story. The narrator kept you on edge, always wanting more and because of the books encouraging and inspirational tone and message... I found a thrill and yarning to really look back at myself and see all the baggage that I carried and still carry. I examined my issues and saw new ways that God is working in my life.

And one of my favorite parts of this book... (was close to the end) when the author wrote as you prepare to leave this world, due to sickness etc. The angels grow excited preparing you place in heaven and say "There's another one coming home".

Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful read and example of: Faith, Encouragement and Hope, written and read with a whole lot of LOVE!

Perhaps......

Perhaps. It parallels this song: You Raise Me Up ! To more than I can be.

Eye Opening

While listening to Traveling Light I had a couple "Aha" moments. So very worth the price. I will be reading this book again.

Traveling light by Max Lucado

I find this a very interesting and encouraging book based on the 23rd Psalm. Max Lucado explains how our personal Christian life relates to each verse experiencing our relationshionship with God, the Good Sheperd.
