About the book

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 – and in doing so, often lose sight of our destination.

In Longing for Home, Stephen Yuille directs our attention to the help God has given us in the Psalms of Ascent. In this collection of Psalms 120-134, we walk with our brothers and sisters through life’s many ups and downs on our way to Zion, the city of God. The Psalms guide us into the path of God-glorifying desires, God-magnifying emotions, and God-honoring thoughts. They shape our perspectives, equip us to pray in faith, regulate our feelings, inform our judgments and beckon us to fix our eyes heavenward as we journey homeward.


There is a psalm for every experience in life, for every sigh of the soul. No other section of the Book of Psalms demonstrates those deep emotions better than the “Psalms of Ascent.” In Longing for Home  Stephen Yuille guides us on a journey through this collection of psalmsand shows how these ancient texts express the sighs of believers in Christ who are longing for their heavenly home.
—Donald S. Whitney, Professor of Biblical Spirituality and Associate Dean, SBTS

Longing for Home is a useful expositional study of Psalms 120-134… Useful for sermon preparation, various Bible Study formats or devotionally for the feeding of one’s own soul. I am delighted to give it my enthusiastic commendation.
—Daniel L. Akin, President, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary

A timeless resource for developing deeper spiritual convictions in our relationship to God. Stephen Yuille continues this heritage with a exposition of the eternal truths of the Psalms of Ascent for the twenty-first century.
—Josh Moody, Senior Pastor, College Church in Wheaton
