This innovative book unlocks the secrets of the desert crossing. Each chapter guides and encourages us across a different desert common to all human suffering. Inspiring stories and penetrating insights make each page an essential model to understanding our own crossings. Desert Crossings is a thinking person’s devotional – not for the faint of heart – but for those eager to become more like Christ and to view suffering as a pathway to improvement.
The theater of angels
Dr. Bob takes the reader on a breath-taking journey into unseen realms, pulling back the curtain to reveal a vast, unseen theater of dazzling celestials. Here fire angels fly on silent wings. Fallen angels escape wastelands to take their places. In this intriguing book, we are transported to the mysterious land of Uz to our front-row seats to one of the most glorious dramas ever written: Job’s victory over his ash heap of sufferings. We are also led to another ash heap in the outskirts of Jerusalem to experience the cosmic triumph of the greatest story ever told. In these and other inspirational stories, we discover penetrating insights to apply to our own redemption and afflictions. We leave the theater with renewed encouragement equipped to soar triumphantly over our own travails.
