In an age of thirty-second commercials, thirty page abridgments and instant banking, it is not difficult to get a person interested in the gospel. It is terrifically difficult to sustain the interest.^^What we need is not another prescription for quick success, but encouragement to persevere as disciples and pilgrims. Above all, we need to learn to pursue a long obedience in the same direction.^^Tucked away in the Hebrew Psalter, Eugene Peterson has discovered "an old dog-eared songbook" which challenges and encourages modern pilgrims. Psalms 120-134, the Songs of Ascents, were sung by Hebrew pilgrims on their way up to worship in Jerusalem. The author focuses a chapter on each psalm and expounds its theme, including worship, service, joy, work, happiness, humility, community and blessing. Peterson shares with fellow travelers his warm, mature reflections on these psalms of faith.^th.^
