Publisher's Summary

"The Lord is my shepherd."

Thus begins the most beloved of all Psalms - and thus begins a thousand-year journey through the Bible. Prophets, apostles, and Jesus himself took up this image from David, reshaping it, developing it, and applying it to their own situations and needs. Kenneth Bailey uses his celebrated insights into Middle Eastern culture, especially his familiarity with Middle Eastern shepherding customs, to bring new light and life to our understanding of this central image of the Christian faith. With each of nine major Old and New Testament passages, Bailey reveals the literary artistry of the biblical writers and summarizes their key theological features. His work is also enriched by his unique access to very early Middle Eastern commentaries on these passages, bringing fresh understanding from within the mind-set of these ancient worlds. The Good Shepherd invites us to experience a rich, biblical feast of ethical, theological, and artistic delights.

    "Thought Provoking"

    Exceptional Scholarship yet not difficult to follow and understand. An important book for stimulating growth of mind and heart.

    "Not a good audio book"

    This could have been done much better. Seemed more like a syllabus than a book. Cameo descriptions were meaningless without visuals.

    Story
    "Gravitas and glory"

    An informative educational study of the good shepherd tradition. The final discussion of the relationship between glory and gravitas was especially moving and helpful. Scholarly without being pedantic.
