Item description for The Lord Our Shepherd by J. Douglas MacMillan...
Overview This best selling work is an inspiring study of Psalm 23. The strength of its appeal is due in part to the fact that here we have the Shepherd Psalm expounded by one who was himself a shepherd for twelve years before his call to the ministry. The author enriches our understanding of this well-known and much-loved Psalm with a feast of personal and practical illustrations. This new edition includes the author's personal testimony.
Publishers Description All who attended the conference at which these addresses were delivered were immediately conscious that they were present at a unique occasion...Not only was the speaker a gifted preacher and an able expositor of the Word of God; prior to his call to the Christian ministry he had been a shepherd for 12 years. And he had taken Psalm 23 as his theme Expectations were aroused. And they were not to be disappointed. It is a great joy to see these addresses...appearing in print. Christian doctrine must be translated into Christian experience, else it is arid and barren. That is the challenge, but also the comforting possibility, that the author holds before us in these addresses...all who read cannot but be helped and inspired.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Lord Our Shepherd?
Warmly doctrinal and intelligently devotional Oct 9, 2009
This book started its life as a series of four talks given by the late author in 1979. Since that time it has provided immense comfort and instruction to believers all over the world. It is an exposition of Psalm 23, and that psalm is explained with integrity and insight.
MacMillan was eminently qualified to write this book. He worked as a shepherd for twelve years before he commenced study for the ministry. Throughout the book his knowledge of shepherding is of great help in explaining the psalm. For example, in speaking on the words, "He makes me to lie down," MacMillan explains that four things will prevent a sheep from lying down: fear, antagonism, annoyance and hunger. He then masterfully applies these to the Christian life.
Most importantly, however, the author writes with a pastor's heart. He is both warmly doctrinal and intelligently devotional. This new edition includes his personal testimony, and the account of his conversion is wonderfully encouraging.
