Item description for Gettin' There: A Passage Through the Psalms by Steve Farrar...
Overview In Gettin' There, bestselling author Steve Farrar delves into the book of Psalms to give men a new sense of continuity, direction, purpose, and perspective. The Psalms are like a marked trail through life, showing that others have walked ahead and faced many of the challenges, temptations, heartaches, and perplexities that men will encounter on their journeys. Farrar shows that when a man begins to understand that the strong and caring hand of God is sovereign over everything in his life -- including his trials and heartaches -- his confidence, hope, and joy will increase dramatically in the God who created him and desires to use him.

Reviews - What do customers think about Gettin' There: A Passage Through the Psalms?
Both Timeless and Contemporary Issues Addressed Nov 15, 2008
In "Gettin' There", Steve Farrar states that the Psalms provide a trail, the path of wisdom, that men can use to traverse life successfully. The author stresses the importance of not taking shortcuts and of staying on the right path. There is good advice in the book about how to come to terms with one's past.
Farrar also takes a look at several topics that have been hotly debated in the church in this decade, including predestination (the author takes the Reformed view on the topic), marital roles, open theism, and evolution.
The author has a warm, somewhat folksy writing style, and this is a great book on contemporary Christian living.
A man's walk in life May 31, 2008
This is a fantastic book for any man, but especially a man who desires to please God with his life. It is basically a devotional from the book of Psalms which uses the word "path" many times. The author uses a western theme and relates this to be like a "trail" that you take. He has great stories to illustrate the choices of trails that have been taken by those who have gone before us, good and bad. It is a must read for young men just graduating, men in their prime, and even older men who would like to salvage what is left. I just wish it was still in print and easier to obtain a copy.
The Brilliance Of Biblical Manhood Sep 22, 2007
It was such a pleasure to read this book! Farrar uniquely bolsters men in their walk. He places failure and fear in the correct biblical perspective and provides us with biblical examples.
Men need to be strong. They are called to protect and lead. Yet, this book is not solely about leadership. It is not about doing it 'my way'. It is not about being autonomous. It is not about denying the unique role God has given to women.
References to Lloyd-Jones and MacArthur marks this book distinctive and re-assuring in contrast with 'Finishing Strong'. Definitely a huge theological improvement, and one that I found a blessing to Christian men.
Hopefully you may already know that biblical manhood is about guts, and not the glory.
'Male headship is about as popular in our day as the military was with the flower children. But unpopular as it may be, it is absolutely essential.' pg 123
There's more to Psalms through Farrar's minds eye Nov 7, 2005
We attended the Fall couples retreat at the Hume Lake Christian Camp in Sequoia Nat'l Park last month. Steve Farrar was our speaker. We were not familiar with Steve's work. Steve announced his weekend topic as simply Psalms 23 ... line by line ... for three days. First note to self ... this could get tedious.
A wonderful surprise ... it was dynamite! Steve grabs your attention with a treble hook. These rote verses came alive, brilliantly decrypted and positioned in the relatable context. The 6 verses, in Steve's macro/microscopic delivery brought Psalms 23 into the 21st century ... all brand spankin' new.
We wanted more. I've now read "Gettin' There". Each chapter is a WOW of cogitative discovery. There's so much more to Psalms than I had been equipped to absorb before reading "Gettin' There".
Steve's a big man, an impossing orator, a critical thinker of Gospel origins and here and now evangelistic thought. I was able to see his style and delivery in every word of "Gettin' There". Picture a large, animated, humble, X-ray eyed Puritan vanguard transported to 2005 to share the continuity of Biblical insight.

A Breath Of Fresh Air!!! Jan 28, 2005
This book is one of the most down to earth reflections on Psalms and how they deal with our lives as men. Steve Farrar is one of the best writers of Christian literature today because of his approach to the scriptures and how they relate to men. I have read several of his books and each and every one is as enlightening as the first. Thank you Steve!
