Journey to Joy – Launch Week Special

“True happiness comes from within.” At least that’s what our culture tells us while beating the drum of self-esteem as the route to real joy.

But what if this is wrong? What if true joy comes not from within, but from without? What if it comes from God himself?

Embedded in the Bible is a little-known guidebook to the lasting joy we long for. The Psalms of Ascent—a set of 15 Psalms that share honestly about the heights and the depths of life while celebrating the faithfulness of God.

In Journey to Joy, pastor Josh Moody helps us to engage and explore Psalms 120 – 134, offering practical counsel, perceptive insights, and personal experience as a fellow pilgrim on the joy-filled journey to the father heart of God.

To celebrate the book’s release, we’re pleased to offer the digital edition for only $0.99 through Monday April 29. You will find the discounted ebook on Crossway.org and participating ebook distributors.

  1. Thank you for this book. I have struggled with Psalms my entire Christian life. OK maybe the more correct answer is, it is difficult for me to understand Psalms so I usually avoid them. But for this year, I have committed myself to reading and studying Psalms every day.

    After reading your excerpt, I immediately purchased the kindle edition. I finished reading the Psalms of Ascent last week; however, I will now go back and with the help of this book study them again.

  2. Richard,

    Thank you for your comments! I’m so thankful the Lord has used this excerpt to encourage your reading of the Psalms. I pray the rest of the book continues to be an encouragement as it points you to the Lord!

    Blessings brother,
