Product Description

What is possibly the most exquisite single group of psalms - 120-134 - describe themselves as 'songs of ascents'. They recall the journeys of pilgrims from all over the land 'up' to Jerusalem to keep the feasts of the Lord. And as the people walked, they

5.0 out of 5 stars An outstanding and refreshing book 3 Mar 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I cannot praise this book highly enough.

For a down-to-earth, wise, insightful, devotional book that helps us pray the psalms into everyday life today, this really could not be bettered.

Refreshing, encouraging, practical, down-to-earth and yet scholarly and informed at the same time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another masterpiece from Dr Motyer 30 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Once again Dr Alec Motyer has presented us with a 'must have' among Christian books. A renowned scholar, he can always speak to us all, academics and non-academics, in clear understandable language and interestingly. In my opinion Journey is a book which should be in the hands of every Christian. Questioners, also, would find it informative.
This journey of the 'songs of ascent' does take each reader on our own journey . It should be a jewel for years to come. This is a small book with a helpfulness way beyond than size. For me, it will be a joy and help over the years to come.
Dr Motyer never disappoints in any of his writings and always brings clarity. One may well be encouraged from this book to explore his books on Isaiah, and on Psalms, and perhaps others further from his pen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Psalms for Pilgrim People 22 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book to help prepare a choir pilgrimage at the church, where I am organist and choir director, during Lent, the Pilgrim Psalms being part of our choir's Spiritual Pilgrimage.
Reading this book brought the 'Psalms of the Ascents' alive and supplied many intriguing facts including the triadic arrangement: Now that has answered a lot of questions!
The physical 'ascents' described in the psalms are an allegorical picture of the spiritual ascents taken by Christians.
A truly informative and devotional book, delightful to read and 'heart warming'. As the people walked, they sang...
