Is the Lord Your Shepherd?: A Shepherd Looks at Psalm 23

A-Shepherd-looks-at-the-Psalm-23A Shepherd Looks at Psalm 23: An Inspiring and Insightful Guide to One of the Best-Loved Bible Passages by W. Phillip Keller

“It is no mere whim on God’s part to call us sheep. Our behavior patterns and life habits are so much like that of sheep it is well nigh embarrassing.”


In this little treasure of a book, Phillip Keller examines the best-known and most-beloved Psalm and relates it to the reader in ways he may never have thought of before. As one who grew up in East Africa among animal herders and who made his living for a period of time as a sheep owner, Keller truly understands the terminology and experiences of a shepherd as David did. He believes that many of us living in the modern, urban West misinterpret or at least do not fully understand and appreciate the metaphors and meaning David offers in the 23rd Psalm. Keller’s book adds depth to the psalm; after reading A Shepherd Looks at Psalm 23, you will never read it in the same way again. (If you are unfamiliar with the 23rd Psalm, please take a moment to read it now.) Continue reading “Is the Lord Your Shepherd?: A Shepherd Looks at Psalm 23”
