As Christians, we're on a journey fraught with joys and sorrows, pleasant valleys and perilous mountains, encouraging gains and crippling losses. Whenever we feel besieged on our journey, we tend to turn to whatever we think can help us another program, seminar, or counselor. In Longing for Home, Stephen Yuille directs our attention to the help God has given us the Psalms of Ascent. These psalms take us on a journey through life s many ups and downs. In so doing, they shape our perspectives, regulate our feelings, and inform our judgments. They guide us into the path of God-glorifying desires, God- magnifying emotions, and God-honoring thoughts. They equip us to pray in faith, as they beckon us to fix our eyes heavenward. If we listen carefully, they teach us how to look to God in every circumstance of life, thereby strengthening our faith and enlarging our hope as we journey homeward.
