9780830822577: A Long Obedience in the Same Direction: Discipleship in an Instant Society

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. This 20th anniversary edition of A Long Obedience in the Same Direction features these Psalms in Peterson's widely acclaimed paraphrase, The Message. He also includes an epilogue in which he reflects on the themes of this book and his ministry during the twenty years since its original publication.

About the Author:

Peterson, now retired, was for many years James M. Houston Professor of Spiritual Theology at Regent College in Vancouver, British Columbia. He also served as founding pastor of Christ Our King Presbyterian Church in Bel Air, Maryland. In addition to his widely acclaimed paraphrase of the Bible, The Message (NavPress), he has written many other books.

Review:

"All of the marks of a classic--profound, timeless, life-impacting." -- —Leith Anderson, author of Leadership That Works

"I've never read a book by Eugene Peterson that didn't stir and challenge me." -- —Max Lucado, author of In the Grip of Grace

"Wonderful book, one of the very best guides to the Psalms! Peterson's combination of passion and insight match the psalmists" -- —Tim Stafford, author of Knowing the Face of God
