The Lord Is My Shepherd: Healing Wisdom of the Twenty-Third Psalm

The Lord Is My Shepherd: Healing Wisdom of the Twenty-Third Psalm Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the author of the best-selling When Bad Things Happen to Good People and Living a Life That Matters-a new book of practical spirituality, of inspiration and encouragement gleaned from what may be the best-known and best-loved chapter in the Bible: the Twenty-third Psalm.

“The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.” So begins the psalm that, for millennia, has been a source of comfort in grief and of courage in fear. Now Harold Kushner discovers what it has to teach us about living our day-to-day lives. Each chapter discusses one line of the psalm in the context of both the time when it was written and the present day, and illuminates the life lessons contained within it. For example, Kushner shows us that the phrase “My cup runneth over” is a declaration of our gratitude for what life has given us and a rejection of the envy we may feel for what others have. And he draws on the ideas and thoughts of various spiritual figures-from G. K. Chesterton to Martin Buber to Paul Tillich-to further expand our understanding of this great psalm and help us benefit from its everyday spiritual wisdom.

Review:

"Kushner writes well and engagingly, and his tone will make readers feel personally welcomed into the rabbi's study for a comforting one-on-one chat." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"[A] nonsectarian, approachable meditation on religious themes....Kushner's work is as effective as ever." Library Journal

Synopsis:

From the author of When Bad Things Happen to Good People comes an exposition on the healing power of the 23rd Psalm. Each chapter discusses one line of the psalm in the context of both the time it was written and the present day.
