n fifteen days, Derek Thomas takes us through the Psalms of Ascent (120 to 134) with a simple aim: to present a Biblical view of discipleship. The writer suggests that taking a Psalm a day, we are provided with just over two weeks to get into spiritual shape! The idea is to read the Psalm, pray over it and take notes on it to see what God is teaching. Each chapter finishes with some questions to 'stir the juices' and recharge the batteries. In a world that has a penchant for 'spirituality', this book is very welcome. Spirituality, like everything else, needs to be evaluated in the light of the Scriptures, what God has written. This book portrays biblical spirituality as believers in the God of the Bible express it. Regarding the keeping of a journal. Donald Whitney has written, 'A journal is one of the best places for charting your progress in the Spiritual Disciplines and for holding yourself accountable to your goals'.

About the Author:

Dr. Derek Thomas is the John E. Richards Professor of Systematic and Practical Theology at Reformed Theological Seminary, Jackson, Mississippi. After pastoring for 17 years in Belfast, Northern Ireland, Dr Thomas returned to the USA in 1996 where, in addition to his work at the seminary, he serves as the Minister of Teaching at First Presbyterian Church in Jackson.

Review:

In this book, Derek Thomas works with the eye of a theologian and the heart of a pastor, to bring them to bear on the lives of every believer. Here one will find a realistic understanding of life in this world, with its pain, frustrations, and passing joys, and a deep vision of the Lord Jesus Christ and his coming kingdom. -- Carl Trueman "Professor of Historical Theology and Church History, Westminster Theological Seminary"

'If you have ever wondered what it means to "be spiritual," you're not alone. And the answer is simpler than you might expect: Christian spirituality is a lifelong immersion in the gospel-God's disclosure of himself in Christ. -- C. J. Mahaney "Sovereign Grace Ministries"
