The Land Between: Finding God in Difficult Transitions
“After fourteen years of friendship, I’m consistently amazed with the largeness of Jeff’s heart---you begin to wonder if the whole world can fit in there. You’ll feel and sense and hear that heart in these pages.” ---Rob Bell, author of Drops Like Stars and Velvet Elvis -- Rob Bell, Author“If the many tear stains on my copy of this book could speak, they’d tell you how very deeply I connected with Jeff’s words. Jeff is a dear friend and an amazing pastor, and he writes with the eloquence and depth I’ve come to appreciate in both his sermons and the conversations our families have shared around the dinner table. When you find yourself in the land between, and at some point you will, read this book.” ---Shauna Niequist, author of Cold Tangerines and Bittersweet -- Shauna Niequist, Author“Plant your feet on the soil of The Land Between and one thought comes to mind: ‘This place will either kill my faith, or make it stronger.’ Jeff Manion’s insights into the biblical narrative will guide you through the land between on a path away from resentment and into gratitude and growth.” ---Dr. Mark Beeson, senior pastor, Granger Community Church -- Dr. Mark Beeson, Senior Pastor 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.
