Do you feel abandoned by God?
Does your prayer life seem dry and pointless?
Are you driven by restlessness of besieged by temptations?
If so, you may be in the wilderness, a place most Christians will visit at some point on their journey, Like the “Slough of Despond” in Pilgrim’s Progress, the wilderness is fraught with dangers and pitfalls. You will fight battles with yourself, with the devil and with God. In this bold, candid book, Brad Long details his own struggles in the wilderness and tells how he emerged with new insight into himself and, more important, God. The result of the wilderness journey can be deeper intimacy with Jesus and empowerment for your ministry.
“For those of you who are happy with your lives and are experiencing usefulness and fulfillment in ministry, this book is probably not for you,” writes the author. “It is an extreme book, written for times of extremity in our spiritual journeys.”
“How many of us in the kingdom callings have endured prolonged, lonely seasons of darkness, self-doubt and disturbing hiddenness from God, and had no freedom to talk openly about it? Brad Long has broken an unnecessary silence. He provides a painfully accurate transparency that touches where many have walked…adeptly leads us out of the ‘black hole’ and into a fresh reconnection with the unceasing grace of God.”
