Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

'The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want ...' Travel the shepherd's path to the green pastures and cool, refreshing waters of Psalm 23. As a shepherd, Phillip Keller shares his insights into the life and character of sheep---and of the Good Shepherd who loves and cares for them. This beloved classic will give new meaning to the ageless Shepherd Psalm, enriching your trust in and love for the Lord who watches closely over you.

About the Author

W. Phillip Keller, born in East Africa, always loved wildlife and the outdoors. Having spent many years in agriculture research, land management, and ranch development in British Columbia, he later pursued careers in conservation, wildlife photography, and journalism. His experiences as a shepherd equipped him with the insights that are the basis for A Shepherd Looks at Psalm 23.

Here is a book that expounds Psalm 23 like you won't likely find elsewhere. Who else could explain Psalm 23 but a shepherd who also is born again? who understands the shepherding concept of God in the Bible? This book will get you thinking "out of the box" of typical interpretation (as sincere as many Bible interpreters are) and bring you into the realm of sheperding reality as it applies to the believer's life. When God wrote about shepherds and shepherding, He used a lifestyle that the Hebrews would understand. Did you know that the shadow of death is not about dying? Did you know that, while this Psalm is useful for deathbed circumstances, it is most applicable to the living and their daily circumstances? Phillip Keller has done a wonderful job. Even when one reads Charles Spurgeon's "The Treasury of David" as he and numerous other commentators address Psalm 23, they miss the mark noticeably because they aren't shepherds. Whether you are going to teach Psalm 23 or use it for prayer, or song worship (for which it is intended), you probably won't find a better book written than this one. You won't believe what you've been missing in this Psalm. You can't read it just once, almost just like the Psalm itself.

This is an abridged version of what is already a short book. I bought it on Amazon by mistakte thinking it was the original. The full version of the book is wonderful, and part of what makes it so are the author's descriptions of his own experiences. Those are largely missing in the abridged version.

I was very disappointed to receive this book in the mail and see that it was not the entire book by Phillip Keller, but merely excerpts from it. Nowhere on the description page was this VITAL information given. I was led to believe that this edition was a beautifully illustrated and presented issue of the entire publication. At least Amazon has a hassle-free return system.

Mr. Keller is very good at bringing to life the shepherd's view as expressed in the 23rd Psalm. He is personally aquainted with the Eastern way of sheep ranching, which of couse is the method employed and understood by David, the psalm's writer. More than just being insightful into the shepherd's mind-set and references, he takes us beyond the physical realm to the spiritual applications that were intended by the the Lord, who inspired David to write it. Herein lies the real worth of this book, because we are brought to see the Great Shepherd, Jesus Christ, and how He is caring for the sheep of His pasture. It brings great comfort to know the love and care that My Shepherd exhibits for me. I recommend it to read by all those who have called upon the Lord and have let Him be their Shepherd. As they read this book they'll understand in a far deeper way the psalms' opening line, "The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want." I also recommend it to those who ! ! are seeking such an encounter with the Lord God. He is patiently waiting your surrender. God bless you and brother Keller.

This little book provides a deeper, richer vision of the Good Shepherd in the context of Psalm 23.
The role of the Shepherd in the lives of sheep; leader, comforter, caregiver, provider, protector, and owner brings rich spiritual insights to Jesus' role in the life of the believer. The parallels are insightful, moving, and profoundly relevant to the Christian experience.
Using personal stories from life as a shepherd accompanied by illustrations drawn from the scripture, Keller provides concerete, specific narrative about being a sheep as well as being a shepherd!
This is a sweet gem of a book bringing to life a favorite passage of scripture.

This is the best book. If you are looking for a Bible study for Psalm 23, look no further. This is awesome. Phillip Keller was a real shepherd, and he thoroughly explains some of the things about sheep that explains the 23rd Psalm in so much more depth. Being that I'm not a shepherd, I didn't totally understand some of the reasoning behind the 23rd Psalm. But after reading some of the explanations of sheep and the things that they do, it brings newer meaning and insight to the 23rd Psalm. This is an older version of the book. The newer versions that are on sale now are only excerpts from the book. This is the actual book itself. Wish he would re-publish this one in its entirety so that more people could study this. This was definitely worth finding a used copy of to study. I have enjoyed it so very much.
