In a nutshell do not waste your time with this book.

While there are a few good things in this book such as the analysis of the word "want", Mr. Morgan's personal accounts of shepherding, how God "restores" (please note the present tense of the verb), and "The Seven C's of Divine Guidance", they are just outweighed by so many other negative points.

First is the errant claim of a Triune God when "The Crucifixion" and "The Ascension" clearly show that there is no Triune God.

Secondly is the errant claim that Abraham moved around a lot because he was a shepherd and this was common in shepherding. This claim is just made worse when Mr. Morgan refers the reader to the book of Genesis to check for themselves without providing any further concrete proof. Well in Genesis chapters 12 to 14 and chapter 20 it is shown that circumstances such God telling Abraham to leave his father's country (e.g. Haran), Abraham getting kicked out of Egypt by the pharaoh at that time, having to rescue Lot, and being kicked out of Gerar all predicated Abraham's moves and not the normal course of shepherding as Mr. Morgan claims.

Thirdly is the errant implication that Esau and Jacob were rival ranchers. Mr. Morgan does refer to a specific set of Scriptures in this instance. However, it clearly shows that Esau was a skilled hunter, Jacob was more of a homebody that liked cooking meals, and nothing about being ranchers.

Fourth was the repeated poor usage of Scriptures in referencing certain points.

Fifth were taking Scriptures way out of context in an attempt to make a point on a repeated basis.

Sixth (and finally) was that Mr. Morgan relied very heavily on the works and accounts of others to the point that I came to the opinions that he did not have many original thoughts in this book and that this book was for all intent and purposes pretty much written by many various people with a contribution here and there from Mr. Morgan.

While the subject of this book (e.g. The Twenty-Third Psalm) is good, unfortunately the same can not be said for this book.
