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.
