Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Traveling light by Max Lucado"

    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.

    "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.

    "Nobody says the truth like Max Lucado"
    What made the experience of listening to Traveling Light the most enjoyable?

    The content, the narrator, and the gentle quiet manner.


    What does Ben Holland bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He reads in a way I wouldn't have interpreted

    "A new understanding of Psalm 23 ."

    I used to have a feeling that Psalm 23 was something you only heard at funerals, that the passages had to do with death . But I learned through this book about how much it has to do with life .
    Max Lucado lead me through various emotions on the way to the conclusion . I have an entirely different viewpoint of this psalm now , as it now leads to hope and joy, with the discarding of the baggage of this world .

    Story
    "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!

    Perhaps. It parallels this song: You Raise Me Up ! To more than I can be.

    "A timely word"

    So timely for so many bags I've been carrying unnecessarily. Practical, biblical truths about Psalm 23. So grateful that a friend recommend this book to me.

    Story
    "A good listen if you need repetition of a theme"
    What would have made Traveling Light better?

    The book would have been better served by moving beyond a few very simple Christian concepts that were repeated over and over with just a slightly different shade of description. Yeah. I "got it" after the first three or four tmies. There are much better books that center on the teachings of Psalm 23. This one was too elementary for anyone who has had more than a passing glance at Biblical study... even who might have only halfway paid attention in Sunday School.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Max Lucado again?

    No. I felt as if this was too much of an absolute beginners' book on living by Christian concepts. As "Chicken Soup" goes... this one was watered down too much for me to try another taste.


    Have you listened to any of Ben Holland’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not, yet I did enjoy his performance, even if the content was not to my liking. I would definitely listen to another book read by him, without prejudice.


    What character would you cut from Traveling Light?

    The condescending narrator? (The written narrator, NOT the performer.)


    Any additional comments?

    I will mark this one up to Lucado being such a great seller that it's worth listening to at least one of his books (I've never read one in print, either.) Unfortunately, I was not able to finish this one: it was just too Nursery School level of teaching for my own level of Christian/Biblical education. I suppose it would be nice to have these Inspirational type books come with some sort of "Spiritual Age of the Reader" warning. ;)

    "A look at Psalm 23"

    A wonderful way to study Psalm 23. Taking a chapter a day I found myself look at things differently. Created picture in my mind to calm my soul make some needed change in my life.
