Adventures in the English countryside and beyond with the Yorkshire veterinarian and #1 New York Times–bestselling author of All Creatures Great and Small. When World War II ends and James Herriot returns to his wife and new family in the English countryside, he dreams mostly of Sunday roasts and Yorkshire puddings, but new adventure has a way of tracking him down. Soon Herriot finds himself escorting a large number of sheep on a steamer to Russia, puzzling through the trials of fatherhood, and finding creative ways to earn the trust of suspicious neighbors who rely on him for the wellbeing of their beloved animals. Herriot’s winning humor and self-deprecating humanity shine through every page, and his remarkable storytelling has captivated readers for generations. “This is Herriot at his best,” said the Washington Post of this New York Times bestseller by the author of All Things Bright and Beautiful and Every Living Thing. The Lord God Made Them All is a true story of postwar England that, according to the Columbus Dispatch, “just explodes with the joy of living and loving and caring.”

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Book Preview: #1 I recalled the last time I had visited the Ripleys, which was to nip some calves. It was always a safari to visit Anson Hall because the old house lay at the end of a ridged and rutted track that twisted across the fields through seven gates. #2 I visited Mr. Ripley to nip some calves. The farmer had promised me faithfully that he would get a new gate, but when I arrived he had eight shaggy heads in a box. They were not calves, but bulls. Mr. Ripley said that time gets on, and he was right. #3 The last animal was the biggest of all. I had to open the arms of the Burdizzo beyond right angles to grip the great fleshy scrotum, and then close them again. It was difficult, and the farmer didn’t manage to close them. But he understood what I had been explaining. #4 I was reintegrating into civilian life after the war, and I was enjoying my wife’s cooking. But when the phone rang and I had to go to a farm to help a farmer with his cow, I was dreading it.

In this final volume of his series on preaching Christ from the Old Testament, Sidney Greidanus offers expert guidance for busy pastors on preaching Christ from Psalms. Beginning with a general introduction on how pastors can interpret and preach from the biblical psalms -- and why they should -- Greidanus proceeds by discussing twenty-two psalms in the Revised Common Lectionary, Year A, supplying the building blocks necessary to preach from Psalms at Christmas, Easter, Pentecost, and other major days and seasons of the church year. In addition to laying out basic homiletical-theological approaches suitable for each selected psalm, these chapters also provide verse-by-verse exposition, bridges to Christ in the New Testament, and ideas for placing the psalmist's words into contemporary context.
