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.

    " Good book for those going through a time of grieving. The author puts real-world meaning behind the words of the 23rd Psalm that can be applied to life today. It encourages people to live a life full of purpose and cling to God when life lets them down. Great ideas, explanations, and exaxmples. "

    " i will fear no evil when i die, i will be in the lords hands. i only ask that my brothers (remeber this alan and edward) and children say kaddish. saying kaddish is not for my soul or the dead; it is too expand the name of the lord as one of his good people has passed on "

    " Did you ever have a bad day? Did ever feel alone or lonely? Have you ever felt blue? Read the Lord is my Shepard. Rabbi Kushner takes the 23rd Palsm and breaks apart so the reader can feel the depth of the passages. He shows us what each reference, sentence, passage can mean to us. It is a quick read. I keep it as a reference book for this is my most favorite palsm. Reach out!! Feel better! (For the record, I am a baptist!) Enjoy! "
