A Voyage of Discovery: The Ups and Downs of the Christian Life
In his latest book Derek Thomas invites us not just read but engage, or better, be engaged by God's powerful Word. Specifically, Dr. Thomas, like a faithful pastor, takes the reader deep into 15 "Psalms of Ascent" (Psalms 120-134). This helpful volume is also a journal inviting the reader to write down observations and applications.
"The psalms, with their kaleidoscopic expression of human emotions, their deep roots in Christ, and their confidence in God even amidst the suffering of the fallen world, have been central to the lives of Christians for centuries. In this book, Derek Thomas works with the eye of a theologian and the heart of a pastor, to bring them to bear on the lives of every believer. Here one will find a realistic understanding of life in this world, with its pain, frustrations, and passing joys, and a deep vision of the Lord Jesus Christ and his coming kingdom. A book that should re-energise all who read it."
