The sheer busyness of life in the twenty-first century can leave us feeling tired and disconnected, stressed and fed up. We can get to the point where we feel that life is just t worth living. In The Shepherd God Simon Lucas reflects on Psalm 23, one of the best-loved of Old Testament texts. He carefully considers the lessons that we might draw from the Psalmist's powerful words. Alongside a challenging and thought-provoking analysis of the Psalm Simon shares his own powerful testimony of how the Shepherd God helped him to beat his own depression. This inspirational and refreshing book is ideal for both personal reflection or for group study.
