There was once a Shakespearean actor who was known everywhere for his one-man show of reading and recitation from the classics.He would always end his performance with the dramatic reading of Psalm23. Each night ,with out exception, as the actor began his recitation ---"The Lord is my Shepherd. I shall not want---"the crowd would listen attentively, and would rise in a thunderous applause in appreciation of the actor's incredible ability to bring the verses to life!
But one night just before the actor was to offer his customary recital of Psalm23, a young man from the  audience spoke up,"Sir, do you mind if tonight I recite Psalm23?.
   The actor was quite taken a back by this unusual request, but he allowed him to recite the Psalm, knowing the ability of this unskilled youth would be no match for his own talent.
With a soft voice,  the young man began to recite the Psalm. When he finished, there was no applause, no standing ovation as on other nights. All that could be heard was the sound
of weeping. The audience had been so moved by the young man's recitation that every eye was full of tears!
Amazed by what he had heard, the actor said to the youth, "I don't understand, though I have a lifetime experience and training, I have never been able to move an audience as you have tonight.Tell me your secret?".
The young man humbly replied," Well Sir, You know the PSALM - but I know the SHEPHERD".
It is not enough just to know the content of the Bible - it's stories, it's sayings and it's teachings. Unless you know the AUTHOR, the Bible is nothing more than just another book. The Bible truly becomes ALIVE and ACTIVE when you know the AUTHOR
