it was amazing
Read from January 27 to 29, 2010

I enjoyed this book even more than the other two books I've read of Lucado's, He Still Moves Stones and Cast of Characters. In this one, he takes the well-known 23rd Psalm and dissects each verse. Then he illustrates why we're to give our burdens (worry,guilt,weariness,etc.)to God to carry for us. Not only was it an excellent book for reminder lessons (like advice to "ponder your success and count your money in a cemetary") but I learned new lessons as well (like how much God really hates arrogance).

Another aspect of the book I liked was how he analyzed in detail the analogy of God as our shepherd and we as His sheep to real shepherds and sheep. Other than the obvious parallel, I was amazed at just how perfect that analogy is to describe the characteristics of and relationship between God and His people.

Lastly, this book is quick, easy reading. A plus in my book!
