Known is a 10–week Bible study with a strong exegetical bent and a touch of devotion. In it, the reader is taken on a journey to encounter our great Shepherd by using the framework of Psalm 23, layered with other passages of scripture that reveal the Lord as our Shepherd. The reader studies the text to first discover what it tells us about the Lord through observation and interpretation. The goal of the study is for the reader to be able to discover what the Biblical text means to her own life, in light of who God is and what He has done, with application coming after sound observation and interpretation.

Through a carefully prepared study, employing thoughtful and insightful questions, Lisa guides us to discover for ourselves the beauty of our great shepherd and the impactful privilege of being known by him. Beginning in Psalm 23, she takes us on a journey through various passages of Scripture which illuminate and illustrate in God’s own words, what it means to be shepherded by him. Lisa’s own experience with these passages, her faithfulness to the inspired Word, and her commitment to transformative application make this study one that is sure to encourage, change, and stir in all of us a deeper love for the Good Shepherd!

It stirs my heart to hear the words of the good shepherd call out to me that I am known, this book can help us gaze afresh on the wonder it is that the God of the Universe knows us more intimately than anyone else and what satisfaction and fulfilment that brings.

This is a much needed word for our anxious souls in these anxious times. I was stirred to simultaneously dig deep and simply delight in this wonderful Psalm.
