Description

2016 Christian Book Award finalist (Bibles category)Stories of Scripture are often portrayed two-dimensionally, making people in the Bible seem familiar, predictable, even flat. We don't always read their stories with much awareness of the pressures they faced, the doubts they had, the assumptions they made, or the alternatives they have chosen.The Dancing in the Desert Devotional Bible in the New Living Translation encourages readers to take an honest look at the people in the Bible. Chris Tiegreen, author of many popular devotionals for both men and women, has written 270 devotionals that explore the lives of people in the Bible and how they faced their own life's wilderness and found meaning, significance, and purpose with God. When we keep our gaze fixed on a story bigger than our own lives, we, too, can learn to dance in even the driest of our deserts.

Back cover copy

Scripture begins with a rich tapestry of human personalities and their experiences with God. Throughout history and in our own lives, we return to these characters to see what it means to believe God, follow him, and participate in his plans. We learn about how to relate to an invisible God--to live a life of faith, to be guided and directed by him, and to participate in his mission in this world.Stories of scripture are often portrayed two-dimensionally, making people in the Bible seem familiar, flat, or predictable. Of course, we know they aren't. But we often read their stories as simple tales. We forget the pressures they faced and the doubts they had. Even though they are far removed from our lives in time and culture, the people of the Bible faced the same kinds of tensions we face: faith versus doubt, right versus wrong, good versus evil. Like us, these men and women wandered through the wildernesses of life in search of meaning, significance, and purpose. By faith, they were able to remember God and his purposes when the darkness closed in around them. In the end, these important individuals not only survived their deserts; they learned how to dance in them.
