Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristina | 2/14/2014

    " Offers a wealth of knowledge about sheep that only a shepherd would know, providing great depth of meaning to an already beautiful psalm. Opened my eyes so much more to my role as sheep and His role as Shepherd. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Abigail | 2/6/2014

    " Such an interesting look at this very familiar passage. I have never really understood what it means to be a shepherd or a sheep for that matter, but this is definitely an interesting take. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Charles Jr. | 1/26/2014

    " Although quoted by many, the familiarity of this text has caused many people to miss the power behind David's message. Keller shows this is a psalm of confidence/assurance of David that God watches over those whom belong to Him. In this book Keller does a great job of dissecting this psalm that we may digest it and gain spiritual growth. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristy | 1/22/2014

    " I was first introduced to this title in a Sunday School class a couple of years ago and it's been on my to-read list for a while. An in-depth look at Psalm 23 from a man who made a living as a shepherd. I love all of the insights that you would never had understood by just reading the text of the Psalm, i.e. "He anoints my head with oil" - shepherds in Biblical times would mix spices with oil and rub it on the sheep. This would keep away pests that could drive the sheep to ram their heads against trees. There's also a beautiful home-away-home theme. "

    " So, so good . . . "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jocelin | 12/5/2013

    " I loved this look at the 23rd Psalm. Keller gives great insight into working with sheep and really brings Psalm 23 to light in a new and vivid way. It was a great book to use for service leader at church and I plan on using it with my teen Sunday School class as well. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen | 11/27/2013

    " An inspiring read ... taken verse by verse through 23rd Psalm. The reader should read slowly and thoroughly for a life changing experience. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lloyd Winburn | 11/25/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer Honeycutt | 11/24/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mark | 8/10/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Monika | 7/31/2013

    " Amazing how God can write the Bible to speak straight to the heart of a shepherd who takes the time to share what God revealed to him. This dumb sheep can learn alot from my Shepherd. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Catherine | 3/25/2012

    " I was just beginning to understand literature and the difference between what is really good and what isn't. There is a lot of style in this book. It was written beautifully! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris Comis | 10/28/2011

    " Some decent insights into Psalm 23 from someone who was a real life shepherd. Helps make more sense of certain elements of this Psalm. Kind of got repetitive at points though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jim Behringer | 9/8/2011

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sylvia | 1/2/2011

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aubrey | 6/24/2010

    " Honestly, not normally my type of book. But I actually enjoyed his comparisons between people and sheep and why David used sheep as our representation in Psalm 23. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie | 2/24/2010

    " Great book if you can get passed the author's "know it all, self-righteous" tone. I love his insights on shepherding as it relates to the Bible, but was VERY put-off by almost everything else he wrote...even when I agreed with him. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristina | 2/20/2010

    " Offers a wealth of knowledge about sheep that only a shepherd would know, providing great depth of meaning to an already beautiful psalm. Opened my eyes so much more to my role as sheep and His role as Shepherd. "

About the Author

W. Phillip Keller (1920–1997) always loved wildlife and the outdoors. Born in Kenya to missonary parents, he spent many years in agriculture research, land management, and ranch development in British Columbia. He later pursued careers in conservation, wildlife photography, and journalism. His experiences as a shepherd equipped him with the insights that are the basis for A Shepherd Looks at Psalm 23

About the Narrator

Maurice England moved to the Chicago area in the fall of 2006, after a twelve year run as a long-haul trucker, to continue the cultivation of his lifelong interest in the expressive arts and oral interpretation. A veteran audiophile, Maurice listened to well over one thousand audiobooks while on the road and fell in love with the genre. From his past experience in broadcasting, community theater, music performance, and ministry he saw narrating as a means to merge his love for books, ideas, learning, and spiritual evolution with his interest in artistic expression. While his narration experience has primarily been nonfiction, personal development, and spiritual-growth titles, Maurice anticipates using his authentically warm and folksy southern style to entertain and inspire through storytelling. Inspired most by the behind-the-scenes artists who engineer, direct, edit, and master the audiobook productions we hear, Maurice has become an absorbed student and participant in the process.
