Publisher's Description

In The Land Between, author Jeff Manion uses the biblical story of the Israelite’s journey through Sinai desert as a metaphor for being in undesired, transitional space. After enduring generations of slavery in Egypt, the descendants of Jacob travel through the desert (the land between) toward their new home in Canaan. They crave the food of their former home in Egypt and despise their present environment. They are unable to go back and incapable of moving forward. The Land Between explores the way in which their reactions can provide insight and guidance on how to respond to God during our own seasons of difficult transition. The book provides fresh biblical insight for people traveling through undesired transitions (e.g. foreclosure, unemployment, parents in declining health, post-graduate uncertainty, business failure, etc.) who are looking for hope, guidance, and encouragement. While it is possible to move through transitions and learn little, they provide our greatest opportunity for spiritual growth. God desires to meet us in our chaos and emotional upheaval, and he intends for us to encounter his goodness and provision during these upsetting seasons.

Publisher's Description

This book provides hope, guidance, and encouragement for people during their toughest times of transition, whether it is foreclosure, health issues, or fear of an uncertain future.

According to Manion, one of the most difficult times to trust God is during one of life's undesired transitions. It's during these times that people firget the Lord is present as they walk through these moments. He asks readers: What if life's transitions are there to remind us that God is present before, during, and after these periods? While it is possible to move through transitions and learn little, they provide the greatest opportunity for spiritual growth. God desires to meet people in their chaos and emotional upheaval, and he intends for them to encounter his goodness and provision during these upsetting seasons.

    Our choice of this study was because one of our members was teminally ill. Many of our study group were also going through difficult times individualy. This study helped us to keep things in perspective and to realize the promises of going beyond the personal desert into the promised land.

    This is a wonderful book that supports and helps one understand the travel we all will make sometime in our lives. The book reminds us that the only way through the " land between" is walking hand in hand with our Lord and trusting in His every plan for us.

    The symbolism that this author uses between the desert experience of God's people under Moses and our trials we are facing today is wonderful. The book is very easy to read and understand. I highly recommend this book for anyone going through their "land between" - whether it be a death, divorce, financial struggle, job loss, etc. How we react to our situation will determine how much closer we will draw near to God and how much deeper our relationship will become with Him.

    this a great book. It offers encouragement during those times of waiting when you can't see what God is up to. It encourages readers to keep trusting God during those 'wilderness' experiences.
