Still Waters and Skyscrapers

Dave Tomlinson

$31.99

Paperback
Despite widespread biblical illiteracy, many people--Christians and the non-religious alike--can still recite Psalm 23. Frequently heard at funerals and in movies, it is a source of comfort in times of grief or fear. But there is more to it than that, asserts author Dave Tomlinson. In Still Waters and Skyscrapers, Tomlinson creatively reintroduces us to a passage of Scripture we only thought we knew. Far more than just words to speak during trials, Psalm 23 is a song of life that "teaches us about the nature of faith in every situation."This fresh take on the best-known psalm takes biblical study, personal stories and anecdotes, and links to popular culture and weaves them together to give readers a new perspective.
