The Lord Shepherding His SheepISBN: 9781783971442
This is an updated version of Jehovah Shepherding His Sheep.
'Through the simple words of Psalm 23, David revealed a glorious and comforting knowledge of his covenantal Lord, pictured vividly as his gracious Shepherd and Host. We easily recite this psalm, but it describes an experience nothing less than a spiritual Holy of Holies. Yet God calls sinners to enter here by faith and walk with Him through all of life. Joel Beeke's exposition of the psalm illuminates the riches of the Reformed experiential doctrines of salvation and sanctification. The book aims, by God's grace, to help readers to grow in their understanding of God's love for His elect people, their submissive embrace of His purposes, and their glad contentment through life's distressing journey until they dwell in the house of the Lord forever.'
Joel R. Beeke (Ph.D. Westminster Theological Seminary) is president and professor of systematic theology and homiletics at Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, pastor of the Heritage Netherlands Reformed Congregation in Grand Rapids, Michigan, editor of The Banner of Sovereign Grace Truth, and author of numerous books.
"In God's providential leading of His church, Psalm 23 has become undoubtedly the favorite psalm of believers. More than any other psalm, this portion of the Holy Psalter has been on the lips and in the hearts of God's people in all kinds of circumstances and trials and hardships. Joel Beeke's study of this text, originally a series of sermons, helps the reader understand why this is so. In fine, this psalm's depiction of the Lord Jesus as a shepherd, when seen in the light of the entire scope of the Bible, goes to the very heart of the Christian Faith. A tremendous, soul-enriching study of this favored text."
--Michael A.G. Haykin, Professor of Church History & Biblical Spirituality, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
"If there is a passage of the Bible that we would judge to be the most well-known of all Scripture, then many of us would choose Psalm 23. Let us be sure we understand and profit from its simple message. It is said that 'Scripture is old, yet ever new.' Proof of that adage is displayed here in The Lord Shepherding His Sheep. You will discover fresh light, comfort, hope and joy in these wonderfully familiar words as Joel Beeke opens them up and applies them to ourselves. Take and read!"
--Pastor Geoff Thomas
