A Powerful and Intimate Read
June 13, 2014
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.

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.
