From the author of the best-selling When Bad Things Happen to Good People and Living a Life That Mattersâ€“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. â€śThe Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.â€ť 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 â€śMy cup runneth overâ€ť 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 figuresâ€“from G. K. Chesterton to Martin Buber to Paul Tillichâ€“to further expand our understanding of this great psalm and help us benefit from its everyday spiritual wisdom.From the Hardcover edition.
