Though David, the shepherd-king, wrote it thousands of years ago, it is still relevant today. Numerous people have rephrased this familiar passage to fit their own ideas, life situations, jobs, or nationalities. A few examples are The American Indian Psalm, a Gardeners Psalm, a Childs Psalm, the Seamans Psalm, the Japanese Psalm, the Teachers Psalm... This book contains a collection of those paraphrases, gathered by the author over a long period of years, many of them illustrated by dramatic black and white photographs. A second section, Stories of My Shepherd, is a devotional commentary on the rewards the author has found in her own life under the watch care of the Shepherd, rewards such as redemption, joy, love, hope. Each story is based on a different phrase of Psalm 23. Only when we place our trust in Jesus the Good Shepherd, she said, can we claim the promise, I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. The reader will find a fresh and deeper glimpse of Gods love and care and concern for him. This inspiring book, suitable reading for all ages, would be an excellent gift for any occasion.
