Psalm Twenty-Three

Through poignant, heart-warming images of an urban African-American family, children experience the comfort and encouragement this favorite psalm still offers — the powerful message that they can rely on the Lord as they thread their way through the risk-filled maze of daily life in the city.

City houses jammed together, streets filled with risk and danger--yet in this setting are helpful people who can be trusted and a home with an abundance of love. Through poignant images of an urban family's daily life, children experience the comfort and encouragement of this favorite Psalm in a contemporary setting. Full color.

Through this powerful series of illustrations, artist Tim Ladwig delivers the inspirational message of hope and rebirth found in the Twenty-Third Psalm. The words of the ancient psalm seem even more relevant against the backdrop of the inner city.

Written by Tim Ladwig


Notable for Ladwig's glowing, realistic paintings of two African American children who are part of a warm, extended family in a bleak, urban neighborhood. . . The pictures express the fears of everyday life and the love and faith of one of the most beautiful psalms.
Ladwig's beautiful illustrations depict God's grace in the day-to-day activities of the members of a loving African-American family amid the ever-present dangers of an inner-city neighborhood.
