Weary travelers. You've seen them - everything they own crammed into their luggage. Staggering through terminals and hotel lobbies with overstuffed suitcases, trunks, duffels, and backpacks. Backs ache. Feet burn. Eyelids droop. We've all seen people like that. At times we are people like that - if not with our physical luggage then at least with our spiritual load. We all lug loads we were never intended to carry. Fear. Worry. Discontent. No wonder we get so weary. We're worn out from carrying that excess baggage. Wouldn't it be nice to lose some of those bags?
That's the invitation of Max Lucado. With the Twenty-Third Psalm as our guide, let's release some of the burdens we were never intended to bear. Using these verses as a guide, Max Lucado walks us through a helpful inventory of our burdens. May God use this psalm to remind you to release the burdens you were never meant to bear.

I find this a very interesting and encouraging book based on the 23rd Psalm. Max Lucado explains how our personal Christian life relates to each verse experiencing our relationshionship with God, the Good Sheperd.
"Nobody says the truth like Max Lucado"
The content, the narrator, and the gentle quiet manner.
He reads in a way I wouldn't have interpreted
"Excellent thoughts on Psalm 23!"
I had forgotten how much I enjoyed Max Lucado years ago and now with audio books I am delving back into his works and getting caught up. He has a way of giving understandable examples from life to explain some of the deeper truths in scripture. I plan to try to get my wife and son to read this book now too.
"Enjoyed the book"
I enjoyed the wisdom teaching and humor. This was my first Max Lucado book and I learned new things in an insightful way.
Perhaps. It parallels this song: You Raise Me Up ! To more than I can be.
"A must read for discovering the peace of the Lord"
A friend recommended this book to me and it was just what I needed. I highly recommend it to anyone searching for how to access the peace and joy of the Lord in their lives.
"extremely encouraging and inspirational"
First of all, the narrator was excellent at reading the story. The narrator kept you on edge, always wanting more and because of the books encouraging and inspirational tone and message... I found a thrill and yarning to really look back at myself and see all the baggage that I carried and still carry. I examined my issues and saw new ways that God is working in my life.
And one of my favorite parts of this book... (was close to the end) when the author wrote as you prepare to leave this world, due to sickness etc. The angels grow excited preparing you place in heaven and say "There's another one coming home".
Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful read and example of: Faith, Encouragement and Hope, written and read with a whole lot of LOVE!
