Description

Perhaps no psalm is more widely known than Psalm 23. Spoken by David during a time of great stress and difficulty, it summons us to lie down in green pastures and walk thru the valley of the shadow of death. Yet so often it seems we do just the reverse, lying down in the valley and fixating on the danger, fear, and uncertainty. We wonder where God has gone and why he doesn't make things right, never considering that perhaps what we perceive as a spiritual trial is actually an invitation from God.

In this inspirational examination of Psalm 23, Heath Adamson asks the provocative question: What if the green pasture and valley of the shadow of death is the same place? Uncovering the rich historical and spiritual context of the shepherd's psalm, he explores how God has provided a place of rest for each of us, even in the times of unrest, uncertainty, moral ambiguity, and fear.


About the Author

Heath Adamson's life was changed dramatically when, at the age of 17, he was saved out of a life steeped in drug abuse and the occult. Now a popular and powerful speaker at conferences, seminars, universities, and churches, Adamson seeks to bring audiences from simply knowing information about God to actually experiencing God in life-changing ways. His dramatic salvation experience has led him to serve in multiple leadership roles with global influence, including Empowered 21's Next Generation Network, and as the global chairman for the Next Gen Commission for the World Assemblies of God Fellowship. He serves at Convoy of Hope, a global nonprofit focused on God's compassion and justice, where loving the poor and needy is a privilege. He is currently a PhD candidate in religious studies at the University of London. He and his wife, Ali, love living God's dream together with their two daughters.
