Book Blurb

Bestselling author Rob Morgan explores the rich meaning and transcendent comfort of the world’s best-known and most-loved poem: Psalm 23.

At a time of great uncertainty for so many people, pastor and celebrated writer Rob Morgan offers the timeless solace of one of history’s most famous poems—six verses that comprise the most memorized passage in the Bible and that, as Morgan shows, provide a microcosm of God’s grace.

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want….Appearing in the middle of a trilogy of psalms, the twenty-third is a soul-soother, a powerful tranquilizer when anxiety robs us of sleep. While Psalm 22 reminds us that the Savior’s cross takes care of our past failures, and Psalm 24 relates how the Sovereign’s Crown ensures a joyful future, Psalm 23 reveals how the Shepherd’s crook delivers our present needs. Morgan teaches the psalm verse by verse, brilliantly illuminating its fascinating context and colorful background, and even shares his own charming, real-life stories of herding sheep. According to Morgan, in knowing the Good Shepherd, we are totally prepared to meet our internal, external, and eternal requirements. What emerges is more than biblical scholarship, offering a journey through simple truths that inspire and buoy the spirit in the most challenging of moments.

My Thoughts:  Robert Morgan peels apart the layers of the 23rd Psalm in this book. Some of this I knew as I did a Precepts study on the heart of David. In peeling back the layers he really shows the heart of God and His grace for us. Robert tells charming stories of his own family and their raising of sheep which really added to the book.
