Item Description...
This world is no friend to grace. God has given us some resources, however. As we grow in character qualities like hope, patience, repentance and joy, we will grow in our ability to persevere. The biblical passages in these studies offer encouragement to continue in the path Christ has set forth for us.

Publishers Description
As a society, we are no less obsessed with the immediate than when Eugene Peterson first wrote this Christian classic. If anything, email and the Internet may have intensified our quest for the quick fix. But Peterson's time-tested prescription for discipleship remains the same--a long obedience in the same direction. // Tucked away in the Hebrew Psalter, Peterson discovered "an old dog-eared songbook," the Songs of Ascents that were sung by pilgrims on their way up to worship in Jerusalem. In these songs (Psalms 120-134) Peterson finds encouragement for modern pilgrims as we learn to grow in worship, service, joy, work, happiness, humility, community and blessing. // In addition to his widely acclaimed translation of the New Testament, The Message, Eugene Peterson is the author of numerous books, including Run with the Horses and Reversed Thunder.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Book  Oct 24, 2008
I order several copies of this book for a study group at church. We needed them in a hurry, and they came very quickly. They were in excellent condition.
Excellent!  Jun 27, 2008
An outstanding and thoughtful set of reflections on the Psalms of Ascent. Highly readable and most strongly recommended.
Not if you want a quick fix for spirituality  Apr 2, 2007
Peterson's work here is spectacular. In a society that wants everything fast--include the mature fruit of Christianity spent years in the making and gestating--one cannot biggy size this or get it while speeding through the window. There isn't even a toy surprise inside! However, these serious, thought provoking, careful reflections into the shape and heart of discipleship bear patient reading, perhaps only a page or two at a time, and then more patient reading, and thinking on--and then more. If you want a quick fix--this book ain't it (I'm by nurture a Southerner, so ain't is quite appropriate), but if you want something to sit for a spell with and chew on a while--read this book slowly and'll be the better for it.
Meat, not milk  Mar 15, 2007
Peterson is not just a pretty good paraphraser of Scripture in his "The Message", he is a powerful interpreter of Scripture, too. "A Long Obedience . . ." (a phrase from Nietsche, of all people) is a real meat and potatoes feast for hungry souls desiring to feed on the Word. Summarizing a single theme within the general context of discipleship in each of the Psalms of Ascent, Peterson provides an uplifting devotional for those ready and able to be inspired by it. His writing in this book is more Lewis than Lucado, so readers must be prepared (by spiritual training and maturity, not just emotionally) to dive in to the depths to derive the full delight from Peterson's expositions. I spent most of summer, '06 in "A Long Obedience . . ." and highly recommend it to others.
Long Obedience int the Same Direction  Mar 8, 2007
This book has the same kind of C.S. Lewis wisdom that makes you want to read, underline, and re-read the book. It is insightful, encouraging and full of new perspectives on life that are applicable to the world we live in today. His words challenged me as a disciple of Christ.
