Book of the Month: A Shepherd Looks At Psalm 23

Well, a new month means a new book to read here at More Than Just Reading, and I’m excited about our book for March. It’s a book I’ve wanted to read for awhile, or rather reread since I did read it as a school assignment when I was in my early teens.

But first, it’s time to see who our readers are from February:



Thank you for joining the February challenge, and I hope you enjoyed The Robber’s Cave as much as I did.

A Bible and a copy of A Shepherd Looks At Psalm 23 by Philip Keller

If you’re new to the monthly reading challenge, the first of the month I choose a book for us to read together. It might be a biography, fiction story, or non-fiction work.

The book for March is A Shepherd Looks At Psalm 23 by Phillip Keller. It goes verse by verse through Psalm 23, giving an in-depth look at what it means for a shepherd and his sheep and comparing it to the Christian life.

In the Gospel of John, Jesus says that He is the Good Shepherd, and His followers are the sheep. Spiritually, we do many of the same things that sheep do and have to be cared for just as they are cared for.

This book was one of the first non-fiction books I read that wasn’t a biography or wasn’t written in story form. I enjoyed reading it then and I’m looking forward to re-reading it now since I don’t remember much about it.

About all I remember is something about the sheep falling and landing on their back and having to be rescued by the shepherd. So I’m excited to revisit the book and see what God teaches me through it. I hope you will join me.

Psalm 23

The book is available for sale online, and you can also borrow and download a pdf of the book from the Internet Archive. An audio-book option is also available from Amazon and possibly other audio-book websites.

If you want to participate, just leave a comment and let me know. Sometime around the middle of the month, I will do a post where I discuss the book, sharing what has stood out to me. You can share your thoughts then, too. If you join the challenge and complete it, let me know because the first of every month, when I tell what our new book is, I will be telling who completed the previous month’s reading challenge.

If you’re finding this post and it’s not the beginning of the month, feel free to go ahead and jump in! Or you can subscribe to the blog by email and get notified when next month’s reading challenge rolls around.

  1. Hi Hannah!!!! Hoping to join in on this challenge!!!! I tried so hard to complete the last two, but I couldn’t find hard copies of the books you chose for either of those, and it’s a bit harder for me to read eBook…. For some reason it’s harder for me to focus on reading off of the screen than off of paper from a real book. But, I’m pretty sure our library has this book, so I think I’ll be able to finish reading in time for this one!!! ? Looking forward to reading this book, sounds like a really good one!

    1. Oh, I hope you can find a hard copy, Anna! I understand it being difficult to read from a screen. I have the same problem. I hope you enjoy the book as much as I have!
