Wayne Stiles has a new book out: Waiting on God: What to Do When God Does Nothing. That might not sound like a book with a strong connection to biblical geography and history, but it is. The book released yesterday, but I’ve already read a large portion of a pre-release copy and it is outstanding.
Wayne looks at life through the lens of the story of Joseph, pulling in his extensive background knowledge to reveal aspects you’ve almost certainly never heard. I taught through Genesis twice this past year and didn’t expect to learn many new things, but I did.
Here’s a short endorsement I wrote:
Every page of Stiles’s book is characterized by practical wisdom, careful research, and vivid writing. I love his insights and personal stories and found I just wanted to keep reading. Best of all, I appreciate how we see from Scripture how we can trust God no matter what.
I highly recommend the book. It’s available for $11.66 at Amazon. And if you send Wayne your receipt before Monday, he has some great free bonuses worth a lot more than $11.66. Seriously, you can’t lose. And you might want to go ahead and pick up a few extra copies for upcoming Christmas or birthday gifts. The book’s message is relevant for all.
