Book Study of A Long Obedience in the Same Direction
by Eugene Peterson
The Psalms of Ascent (Psalms 120-134) were psalms that the Jewish pilgrims would’ve sung as they travelled up (or ascended) Mount Zion on their way to Jerusalem for the holy festival days. As the book’s author, Eugene Peterson, writes, “The ascent was not only literal, it was also a metaphor: the trip to Jerusalem acted out a life lived upward toward, God, an existence that advanced from one level to another in developing maturity.”
We will examine each of these psalms and how they each embody a virtue of life-long Christian discipleship. You are welcome to read along in Peterson’s book if you’d like but that is not necessary to participate in the study.
Each week, Pastor Jason will teach on a chapter from the book and will engage us in conversation about the correlating psalm and Christian virtue.
