Publisher's Description

Bestselling author Robert J. Morgan explores the rich meaning and transcendent comfort of 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.
He restores my soul;
He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil;
For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.


You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life.
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.


Let these gentle words soak into your soul and fill you with the peace you long for.

Editorial Reviews

“I rarely read the introduction to a book, much less a prologue. But when asked to review Rob’s latest book, I wanted to be responsible and read every page, so I dutifully began with the prologue and introduction. By the time I finished, I was quite surprised by how much of a deeper understanding I had gained about a very familiar Psalm. And that paled in comparison to what I received from the rest of the book! Not only do I know Psalm 23 better, but I better know the Lord as my shepherd.”
“In this medicinal book, Rob Morgan offers an alternative to anti-anxiety medications. Even if your life is not stressful, The Lord Is My Shepherd brings soothing peace.”
“Robert Morgan has chronicled an insightful and inspirational journey through the 23rd Psalm. His personal accounts, meaningful illustrations, and biblical references provide a unique and enriching approach to this well-known Psalm. The work gives a fresh, heartfelt interpretation of the text and truths of Psalm 23. He has skillfully shown how Psalm 23 can be applied to our everyday lives. Robert Morgan has given the Christian community a great treasure which I will use often.”
“Through his powerful and evocative weaving of words, Rob has gifted the global church with a treasure. His insight into this most popular passage is compelling, clear and concise. His personal stories appropriately give a robust understanding of the most loved and quoted psalm. This book invites you back to your heart’s true home . . . where you will be welcomed, embraced, comforted, and celebrated by the Good Shepherd. Not only will I read and give copies of this book away, I will recommend it to my Ethiopian friends and mission colleagues around the world.”
The Lord Is My Shepherd by Robert Morgan is a phenomenal book and will be a great comfort to people who are walking through valleys. This in-depth look at Psalm 23 sheds new light on the familiar passage. Having raised several sheep, Morgan has plenty of insight. Every phrase is an illustration from the life of the shepherd and the life of the sheep. It is an extremely encouraging read!”
“Rob uses Psalm 22, 23, and 24 to show a triad picture of how the Great Shepherd of the sheep wants to take care of our past, present, and future needs. Rob’s insight into Psalm 23 is spot on, because of his relationship with the Sovereign Shepherd and his experience both shepherding and sheepherding. His personal stories will have you gripping your heart, weeping, rejoicing and ultimately ruminating upon Psalm 23.”

    I loved this book from beginning to end, in fact didn't want it to end. Robert J. Morgan is a masterful author and anointed by his Father. From the insight shared as to shepherding in Israel, to his own experience and that of others who raise sheep, Pastor Morgan takes us line by line through this wonderful psalm. It is warm, inviting, and very moving. Psalm 23 is so much more intimate and powerful than I knew! I was overwhelmed and amazed as I learned the fullness of this truth of this scripture. Thank you, Pastor Morgan, for another fantastic book.

    Have you ever wanted to look into the face of the Good Shepherd and understand why Jesus used the analogy of the Shepherd when He was King?

    Morgan has his reader's heart and mind from the very first page. A composition of stories, linguistic background to terms, words and ideological background all the while blending a ministry to the heart and the mind of the reader.

    If you are looking for a book that increases your understanding of shepherding in ancient Israel to understand the Emmanuel Shepherd who walks with you today, you will do that in the confident, bold simplicity of this book that looks unashamedly at who this good shepherd is.

    Robert J. Morgan in his new book "The Lord Is My Shepherd" published by Howard Books gives us Resting in the Peace and Power of Psalm 23.

    From the back cover: Serenity...peace...calm...rest...

    Do you long for these?

    Are the stresses of life wearing you down? Are you anxious, afraid, worried? Are you simply not resting, unable to find peace? Through the timeless words of Psalm 23 you can be instantly transported to green pastures, still waters, and a restored soul.

    The Twenty-third Psalm is the world's best-known and most-beloved poem. It's been engraved on the hearts of every generation from antiquity to modernity. It's been quoted across the centuries and through the millennia, and its enduring message is for you...today.

    As both a sheep owner and a pastor, author Robert Morgan knows a thing or two about shepherding, and brings that understanding to this beautiful book. Verse-by-verse explanations of the psalm uncover the rich blessings of the time-tested promises, and intriguing stories of men and women who have lived the psalm in the difficulties of life offer invaluable insights into your own life.

    Take a journey through the simple truths of this life-giving psalm and enjoy the restoration and calm that are waiting for you.

    Psalm 23 is exactly twelve lines long but it is densely packed with meaning. Robert J. Morgan is both a pastor and a sheep owner so he understands about sheep, therefore he understands a lot of the meaning of this wonderful psalm. The book is broken down into two parts: Part One, "The Lord Is My Shepherd" and Part Two, "I Shall Not Want". Pastor Morgan does not give us a dry analysis of these verses he goes into an almost word by word visual exploration of what David was talking about when he wrote this psalm. In addition, Pastor Morgan gives lots of stories about how this psalm was used by lots of individuals across the planet. Why do we need this book? We get cluttered with stress, worry, cares that draw our attention, "The Lord Is My Shepherd" re-focuses our attention on our Shepherd and away from those things so that we can be renewed and refreshed. It won't take you long to read this whole book through. The real fun is when you come back to it to read each Part and each chapter within each part to savor all the richness within its pages. This is one book you will be returning to over and over again.
