Excellent Title on Psalm 23 Sep 30, 2005
Reading this gem of a book reminded me of the privilege of being a student in one of Dr. Town's classes a few years ago. His writing style is just like his teaching style.
Among the important points covered in the book include:
1. Sometimes it is best to flee instead of fighting. 2. We have no spiritual direction on our own. 3. Rest in the Lord and He will restore your soul. 4. Character is doing the right thing in the right way. 5. Too often we depend on ourselves instead of the Shepherd to defend us. 6. Most people do not comfort others because we are too busy seeking it for ourselves. 7. There are people in this world who hate us simply because we belong to the Shepherd. 8. God wants you to have your own cup to drink from. The Lord wants to give you more than you can drink.
The Bible uses the analogy of people being like sheep who need a shepherd. Therefore, the book is a fitting and accurate description of what we are like when we try to live life on our own. Read, be encouraged, and remember that there is a Shepherd who loves you so much that He sent His Son to die for you and is willing to guide you like the Good Shepherd!
It moved my concepts of God toward a relationship with God. Aug 8, 1999
Why am I lonely when surrounded by friends? Why am I restless, when I have so much to do? Why do I feel so sad when I have so much - family, friends, things, activities, and more? This book reminded me that "every desire, every aspiration, every hunger and thirst, every longing of our nature is nothing less than desire for God." David Roper offers a warm, "used-friendly," yet soul-searing glimpse of God as a Shepherd who is the source of our longing - and the answer for it. A simple and personally revealing little book that gave me something to look forward to each morning as I faced another day - and that kept my eyes on God until my head hit the pillow each night. Read it if you're depressed, or just have that small voice inside telling you, "there must be something more."
