Is the Bible able to provide answers to the struggles and difficulties facing Christians at the beginning of the twenty-first century? Does it have anything realistic and genuinely helpful to say to those who are feeling jaded in their spiritual lives as a result of the stresses and pressures of life in a modern world? Derek Thomas gives a resounding ‘yes’ in response to these questions. By leading his readers through fifteen meditations on the Psalms of Ascent ( Psalms 120-134), Dr Thomas shows them that the Word of God is a rich resource, full of the practical wisdom needed to meet the challenges of life in the home, at work, in the community and at worship. This book will assist Christians in restoring a vital relationship of worship and communion with God; establishing the daily discipline of reading the Scriptures; developing the habit of meditating on the Word of God and prayer; keeping a journal which helps to apply the teaching of Scripture and records one’s spiritual progress. In these pages you will find a carefully researched two-week program designed to help you reshape and re-discipline a daily time of Bible study, meditation and prayer.
