Over 3,000 years ago, Israel's King David wrote what has become the most popular song in the entire history of the world. It is known as the 23rd Psalm. Its words have brought more comfort and courage to more people at more times at more places than any other words ever written.
Ken Curtis, Ph. D, founder of Gateway Films, was diagnosed with advanced cancer with little prospect for survival. He pursued a combination of traditional and alternative medicine, undergirded by a strong spiritual dimension and prayer support team. Psalm 23 was a vital part of his spiritual component, and for this film Curtis went to film in Israel, home of David and the Psalm, to be with the shepherds, travel "through the valley of the shadow of death," and explore and enjoy the healing powers of the green pastures and still waters. The resulting 13 meditations, about 8 minutes each, provide an inspiring combination of candid personal experience of what it means to battle cancer and some of the powerful spiritual resources available through this time-honored Psalm.
