From the Back cover: The Lord is my Shepherd; I Shall Not Want.
Psalm 23 is more than just a lovely poem; it is a profound description of the relationship God offers you. In this refreshing, exhilarating book by Tony Evans, you will discover anew one of the most beloved passages of Scripture--and the Shepherd who is more than enough to meet all your needs.
When your spiritual energy is drained, He'll lead you to refreshment.
When you're confused by the world around you, God will guide you onto the right path.
When your life seems threatened by forces outside your control, God promises His protection.
No matter how things appear, your Good Shepherd is constantly at work on your behalf, and you can rely fully on His goodness and mercy all the days of your life.
Psalm 23 begins, "The Lord is my Shepherd". Pastor Evans challenges us by asking if we really believe that. If we really believe that the Lord is our Shepherd then the rest of the Psalm falls right into place. Verse by verse we are told exactly what our Shepherd does for us. In six chapters Pastor Evans does a verse by verse analysis of how our God is more than enough. "God Is More Than Enough" is inspirational, thought-provoking and challenging. There is a strong possibility that you will come back to this book many times to refresh when you are feeling low. I recommend reading this book and giving it as a gift to friends and family.

This short little book by Tony Evans offers an deeper look into
This short little book by Tony Evans offers an deeper look into King David's most popular Psalm: Psalm 23. Tony Evans goes verse by verse, phrase by phrase, through the Psalm and gives thoughts and insight. The whole passage hinges on the first verse: "The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want." (Some verses say "...I lack nothing.") The Twenty-Third Psalm, according to Evans, is and attack on our self-suffiency and believing that we need things apart from Christ, the Good Shepherd.Was this review helpful?

As I mentioned above, this is a short, sweet little book. Only about 90 pages, so you can easily read it in a couple of hours at the most. Tony Evans style of writing is easy to understand-you feel as if he's sitting there talking to you. I enjoyed reading this book and the overall message it provides: God is enough. In each chapter, while expounding on each phrase of the Psalm, Evans shows how God is enough to meet any needs we may have: spiritual, directional, emotional, physical, and eternal needs. He shares a variety of stories and illustrations through out the book that keeps it very interesting and entertaining. You will easily read this is one setting. He also quotes a variety of other Scripture passages and ties them in; I think that is the most important aspect.
If you're looking for a good little devotional that encourages you to look at an old, familiar Psalm in a new light, then I recommend this book. It would also make a great gift or party favor! :)
