In this third book of John DeVries' easy to read devotionals,(see also Why Pray? and Why Give?) the author develops the six verses of Psalm 23 into 42 daily devotions. The comforting themes of this very familiar psalm are presented in a fresh and relevant way targeting our fear-filled world. The book is divided into six thematic sections; belonging, provision, restoraton, protection, victory, and security, and within each section, Devries gives seven practical ways to daily apply and meditate upon each verse. Each daily meditation is followed by a reflection question to consider or discuss with others. There are also six "wrap-up" exercises after every section that can be used for small-group discussions or family devotions around the kitchen table. This litle booklet is a perfect gift for people facing fearful times in their lives or even as an evangelism tool for churches and individual Christians who minister to broken and fear-filled people.
