The Good Shepherd

Full Product Description

Kenneth E. Bailey's The Good Shepherd brings new light and life to your understanding of one of the most beloved and central images of the Christian faith.

" The Lord is my shepherd. " Thus begins the most beloved of all Psalms and thus begins a thousand-year journey through the Bible. Prophets, apostles and Jesus himself took up this image from David, reshaping it, developing it and applying it to their own situations and needs.

Kenneth Bailey uses his celebrated insights into Middle Eastern culture and especially his familiarity with Middle Eastern shepherding customs to bring new light and life to our understanding of this central image of the Christian faith.

With each of nine major Old and New Testament passages, Bailey reveals the literary artistry of the biblical writers and summarizes their key theological features. His work is also enriched by his unique access to very early Middle Eastern commentaries on these passages, bringing fresh understanding from within the mindset of these ancient worlds. The Good Shepherd invites us to experience a rich, biblical feast of ethical, theological and artistic delights.

The Good Shepherd by Kenneth E. Bailey was published by SPCK Publishing in February 2015 and is our 6079th best seller. The ISBN for The Good Shepherd is 9780281073504.
