Psalm 23 can mistakenly be considered a funeral Psalm, but John Zehring illuminates how it is an everyday Psalm. The Psalm affirms God's comfort in the valleys of life but also guides the follower into a daily refreshment of the spirit. As one of the world's greatest works of literature, the Psalm has the power to lead the reader into the very presence of the Divine. The book provides a verse-by-verse interpretation to bring illustrations about sheep and shepherds into the 21st century. Many translations are employed although the basis used is the poetically beautiful King James Version. "Psalm 23: An Everyday Psalm" lifts up each verse as a treasure to be employed on a daily basis by the person who chooses to own the credo "The Lord is my shepherd."

We learn the 23rd Psalm often as children, but do we really understand what it means? This book is easy to read, understand, and clearly makes a good impression. Many thanks to the author, John Zehring.
