9780802429087: A Voice in the Wilderness: God's Presence in Your Desert Places

"The Bible is not a sterile book immaculately conceived in some sort of mystical, holy vacuum. Though God is the ultimate Author, He used human writers as His instruments. And to interpret properly His Word, we must enter their world. The bleating of sheep on barren hills, the mournful wail of a ram's horn trumpet on the temple steps, the harsh clang of sword hitting sword in epic battle hang like tapestries in the background of every page." — Charlie Dyer


Life's struggles can make us feel as if we're wandering in the desert, thirsty for hope and healing. Using Isaiah 40 as a backdrop, bestselling author Charles Dyer takes us on a journey through ancient Judea for a vivid reminder that others before us have known suffering. And just as God was present for them in their pain, He will walk with us through our wilderness.

About the Author:

In addition to his role as host of The Land and the Book radio program, Charlie is an Old Testament scholar and an authority on Middle Eastern history and geography.

His most recent book is The Isis Crisis. Charlie and his wife, Kathy, have been married for more than 40 years and have two grown children.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

We can become discouraged when we focus so intently on our problems that we forget God's presence by our side. Like Peter trying to walk on top of the wind-whipped waves on the Sea of Galilee, we can survive life's storms as long as we keep our focus on the Lord. But all too often we take our eyes off Him and find ourselves sinking into a sea of despair, discouragement, and doubt. Thankfully, Jesus reaches out His hand to us, just as He did to Peter, to catch us before we go completely under (see Matthew 14:28-31). No valley is too deep, no mountain too high-or no sea too tempestuous-to keep God from coming to our rescue. Are you burdened by problems that seem overwhelming? Perhaps you feel alone in life's harsh wilderness-hemmed in on all sides by mountainous problems and valleys of despair. Or perhaps you feel as if you are drowning in a sea of troubles, struggling helplessly against the doubt and discouragement that threaten to engulf you. Whichever metaphor describes your current struggles, you must realize now that you are not alone. God has promised to come to your aid, bringing comfort and hope.
