Rob Morgan, bestselling author of Then My Soul Sings, explores the rich meaning behind the world’s best-known and most-loved poem—Psalm 23. The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters… These are the opening lines to one of the most memorized, inspirational, and comforting passages in the Bible—and one of the greatest poems of all time. In six verses, it provides a microcosm of God’s grace. When anxiety robs us of sleep, our most powerful “tranquilizer” is Psalm 23. It’s a soul-soother. It appears in the middle of a trilogy of psalms dealing with our past, our present, and our future needs. In The Lord is My Shepherd, Morgan teaches Psalm 23 verse-by-verse, explaining its extraordinary power to change lives and ease our troubles. He shares its fascinating context and colorful background, as well as his own charming, real-life stories of herding sheep. You’ll find encouragement to enjoy the “green pastures” of life while becoming strengthened by the “dark valleys.” Furthermore, Morgan maintains that some of the Bible’s richest truths are summarized in these six simple verses of Psalm 23. In knowing the Good Shepherd, we have total resources for all our internal, external, and eternal needs. Through this clear explanation of the biblical text and great stories that illustrate the love and care of the shepherd, The Lord is My Shepherd will help you rediscover the joy, inspiration, and peace in the green pastures of this beloved psalm.

Cindy’s church is getting ready to celebrate Easter, and Jeremiah’s Temple is preparing for Passover when Cindy literally stumbles over the body of an unknown man lying dead in the sanctuary. The church was locked, and a bloody cross necklace on the floor seems to be the only clue. The killer is likely a member of the congregation, but there are hints that similar deaths have happened in the past. Are Cindy and Jeremiah dealing with a serial killer? They have to unravel the clues before Easter Sunday arrives and more people die. Cindy and Jeremiah come from two different worlds, even though they work right next door to each other. Cindy is a strong Christian who lives a normal but somewhat dull life, working as a church secretary. Jeremiah is a Reformed rabbi with a mysterious past full of danger and excitement. But one eventful Easter/Passover week, the two find themselves working together to solve a murder and stop a serial killer from striking again. Solving the mystery should put an end to their alliance, but the church secretary and the rabbi quickly find themselves enmeshed in another mystery. Soon the two form a friendly alliance and friendship, exploring personal history and faith and growing closer with each passing adventure. Despite their differences Cindy and Jeremiah find a lot of common ground.

Timeless and inspiring, the shepherd metaphor addresses the fundamental relationship between God and man, speaking directly to questions raised by centuries of persecution. What is the nature of suffering in a just universe? How does suffering alter our perceptions of God? Rabbi Samuel explores questions of faith that are as old as the story of Job and as modern as the Holocaust. The image of God as a shepherd caring for his flock is well-known from the Twenty-third Psalm, "The Lord is My Shepherd." However, the concept of a God who nurtures and watches over people is often difficult to accept for those who have endured great tragedy, particularly for Jews living after the Holocaust. In this groundbreaking book, The Lord Is My Shepherd: The Theology of a Caring God, Rabbi Michael Samuel examines the image of God as a shepherd in Jewish tradition, contending that this image is essential to Jewish theology. By illuminating the challenges of modernity, and suggesting that the key to reawakening our sense of spiritual life lies in the ability to grasp the images that inspired our ancestors, The Lord Is My Shepherd offers contemporary seekers a great deal to ponder.

There are many good books written about Psalms 23, so why another one? I answer, why not. I believe you cannot have enough of a good thing. This Psalm appears the favorite of many Psalm lovers and seeing it has blessed so many why not add one more blessing. @page { margin: 0.79in } h1 { margin-bottom: 0.08in } h1.western { font-family: "Liberation Serif", serif } h1.cjk { font-family: "Noto Sans CJK SC Regular"; font-size: 24pt } h1.ctl { font-family: "FreeSans"; font-size: 24pt } p { margin-bottom: 0.1in; line-height: 120% } a:link { so-language: zxx } There is a bulletin board in a park where people post different things like upcoming events, and things people are trying to sell, or places for rent. Well, one day someone wrote in big letters, "HELP." Maybe it was just a joke, but again maybe it was a cry for help. I guess if there is a reason for me writing this book, it would be in case someone is in need of Help. Aid in understanding this Psalm, or encouragement in their walk with the Lord. Help in understanding what God wants for their life. Whatever be the case I hope this writing helps you where you need help. Let me just set the stage to Psalms 23 before even introducing you to this book. The Bible says about King David; the author of this Psalm, that he was a man after God's own heart. With that thought in mind, I want you to imagine this great man and king of Israel, one night going into his bedchamber, maybe even after a great battle, and even after a tiring day. Before resting his head on the pillow, his thoughts are with God, the High and Lofty One who inhabits eternity. The one who has so many times delivered him from the hands of his enemy. The candles are lit the quill is in his hand as he writes the first thoughts on his mind. "The Lord is my Shepherd." And yes, David knew what a shepherd was because as a youth he learns the trade well. Defending the flock against all the perils, delivering them out of the clutch of the lion and bear. All this might have been on his mind as he compared His God with the care of a quiet, unseen shepherd guarding his flock, and maybe looking over him as one cares for a sheep. I thought this might be the best way to start with these thoughts. If our hearts are like David's heart and it seeks after God, I ask you to take a fresh look at what this Psalm is all about. Introduction It was in 2002 and 2003 when we had an in-depth study in Psalms 23 given by Jerry McMillin at the small chapel I attend. This Psalm has only six short verses so that I will cover them in 6 chapters. Out of all the Psalms, I believe this one is the best known. We hear it at many funerals. Many have memorized this one including myself. The thought might be on your mind, how can you get so much out of something so small? A chapter for each verse. I can answer that by saying that God's Word goes deep and sometimes you have to dig deep to find the precious Gems that the Spirit of God buried deep from those that just look on the surface and pass right by them. This book is not replacing this Psalm, but It will help you in understanding it. Think of it as a flashlight as you go into an underground mine filled with treasures that you might overlook. With flashlight in hand let us go in search of these treasures. When writing about spiritual things it takes much meditation because it is hard to write about things you can see, feel, touch, smell, hear, or taste but by comparing all the physical things to spiritual we can start to understand things we cannot see. We live in two parallel worlds, the physical and spiritual. The seen and the unseen. We are walking in both simultaneously, but sometimes we don't even realize it.
