A fresh new update to the beloved classic A Shepherd Looks at Psalm 23.
A Shepherd Looks at Psalm 23 will join Serenity and The Creeds as a beautiful new entry into the Zondervan Gift Timeless Faith Classics line. Combining sophisticated, timeless designs with the sage wisdom of Scripture will make this line a favorite with readers interested in the classic tenants of our faith.
W. Phillip Keller writes of the loving Shepherd of Psalm 23 who leads his sheep to the green pastures and cool waters. The Lord is My Shepherd, I Shall Not Want. The truth and comfort of these familiar words spring to life in this gift edition of W. Phillip Keller's classic work, A Shepherd Looks at Psalm 23. Based on his years as a keeper of sheep, Keller infuses new hope and meaning into our relationship with Christ, the Good Shepherd. As we lie down in green pastures or walk through the shadowy valley, we're assured that whatever our path, whatever our stumbling, the Shepherd will lovingly guide, carry, and protect us. We can depend on His goodness and mercy all the days of our lives.
This timeless passage of Scripture has been the topic of countless books, articles, and gift products. Keller’s classic book lends itself seamlessly to the Timeless Faith Classics line with its simple but poignant text, beautiful 4-color photographs, and an updated cover.
Beautiful metaphors! Interesting facts. I’m gifting this book to my Catholic friends for Christmas.
New Perspective at Psalm 23
At first glance this book seems like a simple overview of one of the most famous and quotes passages in the Bible. Yet within the first few pages all expectations shatter. Psalm 23 becomes alive, because you’re able to see where David was when he wrote it. Everything has meaning, and it all points to the LORD. Keller does a wonderful job of bringing life and meaning to each thought David had. I HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone who is wanting to understand the LORD’s heart for His sheep.
A guiding force..
When I first got this book I would casually read through the journey of this Shepard. As I progressed I felt the spirit. I’m a 29 year old relearning how to have a relationship with God, and this book is great. It’s a guiding force that shares the parallels between the responsibilities of a Shepard, and how our current affairs in society impact our relationship with God. From the minuscule tasks of sheering a sheep and how that affects the body, and balance of a sheep to how our own bodies and understanding effect our relationship with God. Sheeesh. Now that I’ve completely finished the book. I can’t wait to reference my bookmarks as I travel through the hills sides.
Great for beginners in The Word, and anyone who might be seeking or understanding their rocky relationship with the living Word.
