it was amazing
bookshelves: on-faith

Tim's review of another Peterson book reminded me of this so I'm adding it. I haven't read it in ages, but I loved it every time I read it right up until the day our good friends who are Bible translators for Wycliffe said it would be helpful in their translation of the Psalms and we sent it with them. I think this is Peterson at his best: lyrical, Biblical, pastoral. It's also quite difficult to get lost in it because it's sharply edited by IVP and broken into truly distinct chapters, each of which meditates on one of the Psalms of Ascent (including our Marriage verse, Psalm 126).
