A SHEPHERD LOOKS AT PSALM 23

by Phillip Keller


A Shepherd Looks at Psalm 23 is absolutely fabulous! Written by a man of God that was a real sheep herder, he educates us about sheep habits and their needs. Mr. Keller helps us understand the true meaning in the Psalm 23 scriptures. Each verse in Psalm 23 is dissected and presented so that we, the non-sheep herders, understand what God was conveying to His people--that understood the needs and behavior of sheep. This book is a total eye opener for understanding this section of well-known scripture. "Storms may break about me, predators may attack, the rivers of reverses may threaten to inundate me. But because He is in the situation with me, I shall not fear. To live thus is to have taken some very long treks toward the high country of holy, calm, healthy living with God. Only the Christian who learns to live this way is able to encourage and inspire the weaker ones around him. Too many of us are shaken up, frightened and panicked by the storms of life. We claim to have confidence in Christ but when the first dark shadows sweep over us and the path we tread looks gloomy we go into a deep slump of despair. Sometimes we just feel like lying down to die. This is not as it should be. The person with a powerful confidence in Christ; the one who has proved by past experience that God is with him in adversity; the one who walks through life's dark valleys without fear, his head held high, is the one who in turn is a tower of strength and a source of inspiration to his companions. There are going to be some valleys in life for all of us. The Good Shepherd Himself assured us that 'in this world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.' [John 16:33] The basic question is not whether we have many or few valleys. It is not whether those valleys are dark or merely dim with shadows. The question is how do I react to them?" Mr. Keller is humorous in his presentation, as well as factual. I laughed, I cried, I had many "Aha" moments while reading this powerful and comforting book. Add this one to your library--you won't be disappointed!
