Publisher's Description

At one time or another, every Christian goes through a period which is referred to as a "desert experience"?a time when they feel forsaken by God, in doubt about what God would have them do, a period of darkness of the soul. Many, during those times, feel they are alone in this experience, but this thought-provoking book shows readers that they are not alone?that in fact, many well-known Christians have been there also. Featuring personal testimonies from each contributor, The Desert Experience offers readers encouragement and valuable lessons from those who have made it through the "desert"?lessons of hope, humility, goodwill, and the sovereignty of God?all lessons necessary for the maturing of a Christian.
