Publisher's Description

Through every turn of the biblical story, God's people are a wandering people. When they are rescued from slavery in Egypt, God sends them into the desert, where they wander for a generation. Jesus and his disciples wander from town to town. In fact, some of God's most important truths are imparted to people with dusty feet as they travel on the road.

With his trademark thoughtful introspection, A. J. Swoboda boldly suggests that wandering is not an absence of faith but a central component of faith. In The Dusty Ones, he leads the restless, the frustrated, and the curious on a spiritual journey to uncover the answers to questions like

- Do I wander because I'm failing or because God has left me?
- Is the desert something I can overcome?
- Why is God sometimes "hidden" in the Bible?
- What do I do when the end seems nowhere in sight?

This compassionate and contemplative book offers hope and peace to Christians and seekers alike as they make their way down the winding road of faith.

    If youre looking for a great book that weaves how God has been shaping and cultivating Gods people throughout scripture with the honesty and realness of one who is right smack in the middle of that journey, then youve found it in A.J. and his new book, The Dusty Ones. A.J. looks at the theme of wandering throughout scripture and then allows you to sit in them as he wanders down another facet of our faith journey only to reconnect you back to where you were previously sitting. The style of this book along with the others I have read are like sitting down and having a conversation with an old friend. There is not a outline, merely an invitation to be a part of the conversation which is rich with truth and honesty. I found myself at times having to put the book down and let my mind be in the moment of the last sentence.

    I highly recommend this book to anyone who feels like their own desert experience is not going anywhere, or to those who may have tried to avoid a desert experience all together. This was a highly enjoyable book to sit with.
