    The perspective of Psalm 23 is brought forward so beautifully through the eyes of the author who was a former sheep farmer.

    A well written expose taking the reader out of the pulpit or pew and placing him or her within the flock. As a Pastor for nearly forty years, Phillip's descriptions and insights concerning sheep felt like Deja Vue. As he outlines a full year with the sheep, you'll learn about what is good pasture and bad, both here and in the high country

    Wow! Great book! Very insightful and thought provoking book examining the similarities between Jesus, our Good Shepherd, and we the sheep of His pasture.

    As an experienced shepherd, the author transports us into the role and mind of a loving shepherd to understand why David chose the words he did and how they relate to his sheep and how they parallel the love of our Great Shepherd, Jesus. I cannot say enough about this book, but if you want an in depth understanding of Psalm 23, I

    I gave this book a three, simply because the author , typical of most Christian religions in America, puts works righteousness ahead of Christ work for us. We are completely reliant upon Christ in all aspects of our life , including the faith that is put in us, and not created of ourselves. We live in this flesh, so sin clings to us, in this life. There is always forgiveness for those who are repentant and trust in the promises o

    The Lord's my shepherd, I'll not wantA lot of people throughout the English speaking world will be familiar with the 23rd Psalm, either from the Bible or from one of the many old hymns and modern choruses based upon it. The old King James Bible version of this psalm, set to the tune of Crimond, is still frequently used at memorial services. So, although this book is primarily aimed at the committed Christian, it poten

    It comes as no surprise that over 2 million of these have been sold, it is a gem of a book that should be beside every Christians bed. I cannot recommend this little book enough, it speaks right into the heart in a straightforward, unsentimental and compassionate way. Here is an paragraph from the last chapter:

    It is the sheep owner's presence that guarantees there will be no lack of any sort; that there

    Revisited this book which I read many years ago. It did not disappoint. Excellent picture of the intimate Shepherd. Recommend it.
