The Land Between (Jeff Manion)
Study of a Book of the Bible: Exodus
Jeff Manion uses the biblical story of the Israelite’s journey through the Sinai desert as a metaphor for being in an undesired transition. After enduring generations of slavery in Egypt, the descendants of Jacob travel through the desert 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. God desires to meet us in our chaos and emotional upheaval to encounter his goodness and provision.
