I had a copy I continued to loan, then purchased paperback to give. I've purchased a second hardcover just in case something happens to one. This is one book (along with the Bible) to never be without out. Lessons from a Sheep Dog by same author is a great companion book to have also.
I purchased 11 copies for my ladies bible study group because the study we are doing keeps refering to it. The women have raved about it with comments like, "It has thoroughly changed how I understand the 23rd Psalm."
