Pilgrim Songs


Meditations on the Psalms of Ascent


Edward Dennett



Product Description:

'Song of Ascent' is the title given to each of the fifteen psalms from 120 to 134. Also known as the songs of degrees, they cover a wide range of subjects, but are also notable for what they have in common: the beauty of their poetry, their focus on the Temple, and the hope that they all express. This classic discussion of these Psalms emphasises their historical significance and the precious prophetic truth that they contain, but also highlights their relevance for pilgrim believers today. Dennett's clear and concise exposition of these precious passages of Scripture is a delightful and edifying work that directs the reader to Christ as the fulfilment of prophecy, and the hope of God's people in every age.

Edward Dennett (1841-1914) was born at Bembridge in the Isle of Wright. He served as a Baptist minister in Greenwich, but following a serious illness, and a period of recuperation in Switzerland, he abandoned his denominational ties and gathered to the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. He laboured in England, Scotland, and Ireland, and visited Norway, Sweden, and America. He edited The Christian Friend from 1874 to 1899, and wrote a number of books and articles.
