J. Douglas MacMillan ministered at Aberdeen and Glasgow. He was a professor at the Free Church College, Edinburgh. He died in 1991. These messages are taken from his addresses at the Evangelical Movement of Wales Conference, Aberystwyth, 1979.Review:
In God's providential leading of His church, Psalm 23 has become undoubtedly the favorite psalm of believers. More than any other psalm, this portion of the Holy Psalter has been on the lips and in the hearts of God's people in all kinds of circumstances and trials and hardships. Joel Beeke's study of this text, originally a series of sermons, helps the reader understand why this is so. In fine, this psalm's depiction of the Lord Jesus as a shepherd, when seen in the light of the entire scope of the Bible, goes to the very heart of the Christian Faith. A tremendous, soul- enriching study of this favored text.--Michael A G Haykin
If there is a passage of the Bible that we would judge to be the most well-known of all Scripture, then many of us would choose Psalm 23. Let us be sure we understand and profit from its simple message. It is said that 'Scripture is old, yet ever new.' Proof of that adage is displayed here in The Lord Shepherding His People. You will discover fresh light, comfort, hope and joy in these wonderfully familiar words as Joel Beeke opens them up and applies them to ourselves. Take and read!--Pastor Geoff Thomas, Aberystwyth, UK
These addresses are the fruit of careful exegesis and sound theology, but they are also messages of life to Christian people.--Hywel R. Jones
