What would you expect in the desert? Parched, cracked soil? Barren wastelands? Coyotes and rattlesnakes? Yes, that's about right. No one anticipates much growth or change here. It's dry, desolate, and barren.
Unless ... the desert is transformed by the presence of God.
This book is the true story of God's incredible work in desert places. It tells of real people--unlikely people--who saw God transform their desert by His grace. These stories tell of the numerous works God does in desert places. He multiplies. He mends. He binds wounds. He restores relationships. He gives new life. He offers solitude and refreshment. In short, He does the unlikely--the impossible--in desert places.
But more than reading the stories of others, this book is an encouragement to all desert travelers. Through these pages, you will step into a desert classroom. Here, surrounded by sand and tumbleweeds, you will learn the timeless principles of God's work in desert places.
Many of the greatest men in Scripture found themselves in desert places--Moses, Philip, John the Baptist, David, Jeremiah, even Christ Himself. In this book, you will discover what they learned in the desert.
Perhaps you are in a desert place. Whether you are a pastor or layperson, if you long to see God transform your desert, this book holds good news for you: God delights in working desert miracles!
Even in desert places--especially in desert places--God still moves.
