A Long Obedience in the Same Direction

Eugene H Peterson

Since Eugene Peterson wrote this spiritual formation classic more than 40 years ago, hundreds of thousands of Christians have been inspired by it’s call to deeper discipleship. Our society is still obsessed with quick fixes. But Peterson’s time tested prescription for discipleship remains the same – a long obedience in the same direction. Following Jesus requires a deepening life of prayer, and throughout history Christians have learned to pray from the Psalms. Peterson find particular encouragement for todays prilgrims in the Song’s of Ascents ( Psalms 120-134). With prophetic and pastoral wisdom, he shows how the psalms teach us to grow in worship, service, joy, work, humility, community and blessing.
