"Releasing the burdens you were never intended to bear: The promise of Psalm 23."

The chapters talk about emotional burdens so many of us carry. Lucado breaks Psalm 23 down into small phrases and spends a chapter discussing each phrase and the particular burden it can help us release.

Very enjoyable reading. Not deep, which can be either a positive and a negative. Also contains a 50 page study guide.

Awesome! If you like Max Lucado this book is for you! Has some highlighting in it.
Feel the need to throw off the cumbersome burdens that weigh you down? Certainly, responsible adults learn to adjust to tremendous stresses and equip themselves to carry the heavy weights of self-reliance, weariness, worry and hopelessness over the long haul. In Psalm 23, God counters the misconception that burden-bearing signals Christian maturity and admonishes followers to leave their loads at Christ's feet, as he is the only one truly equipped to handle the weight. Lucado dissects Psalm 23 while recounting tender tales of men and women who have overcome crushing circumstances with Christ's support. In keeping with Lucado's typical homespun style, humorous anecdotes often precede powerful punches of biblical truth. Rounding out this collection of essays is a study guide encapsulating each chapter's topic. Readers will travel back, up and on as they reread key excerpts, study pertinent Bible verses and allow the lessons to take root. This insightful collection not only measures up to the high standard of Lucado's own previous works, but his profound perspective on life and spirituality frequently exceeds expectations.

I laughed at loud while reading this one -- much more humorous than Max's normal writing. However, so "right on" reading for anyone who carries burdens that seem unshakeable. I read each chapter, and then reread it before going on to the next. I haven't been so refreshed and unburdened!!

This was my first Max Lucado book. I was very well pleased with this one. He is a very fine author with a easy to understand and quite humorus, down to earth style. I really enjoyed the way he took the 23rd Psalm verse by verse and related them to our everyday lives. He is an inspirational speaker and author too as I have found out with this book! I would rate this book on a scale of 1 to 10 a solid 9 for Biblical content, easy to understand, and personal connection as to how "this relates to you".

Excellent book...so insightful. Page 32 "You have a God who hears you, the power of love behind you, the Holy Spirit within you, and all heaven ahead of you. If you have the Shepherd, you have grace for every sin, direction for every turn, a candle for every corner, and an anchor in every storm. You have everything you need."

I love everything Max Lucado writes. This book is wonderful. Everyone carries unnecessary "baggage," and this book has taught me how to leave it behind.
