Product Description

Details

Everyone is waiting for something - a bus; an appointment; improved health; a spouse; a place to belong; a chance to do what you're gifted at - a better life.

Waiting short-term is hard enough. For those who've been waiting for years, it can be utterly agonising.

This book is for those who are waiting, which is all of us. It is for those who find waiting hard, which is most of us.

How does the Bible tell us to wait? It's tempting to think it tells us to live stoic, uncomplaining lives, with compulsory inner joy.

But the Bible is a lot more honest than we are about the weight of waiting. Those Who Wait tells the stories of Sarah, Isaiah, John the Baptist and Mary in their own voices, immersing ourselves in their struggle with waiting. Through their lives we come face to face with ourselves - and the mysterious grace of God.

Ultimately, though we may not feel it, we are all engaged in the wait of the world - Christ's coming, and Christ's return. These stories invite us to lean in to the discomfort of waiting because it is there that we find purpose, perspective - and above all, God.

With outstanding storytelling plus reflection questions, creative exercises and six separate Bible studies, it is perfect for personal devotion or church group study.
