"Behold, I will allure her, and bring her into the wilderness, and speak to her heart . . ." (Hos 2:14)
Hope in the Wilderness urges you to consider that your wilderness experiences--places where you suffer deeply, places where you can't find or feel God anymore, places of transition and upending of the life you used to know--are the very places where God speaks to your heart. As Noel Forlini Burt invites you into her own season of wilderness wandering, she enfolds the story of biblical characters who also wandered in wilderness, gently beckoning you to open yourself to the heart of God in your own story. Not merely a book to read, Hope in the Wilderness beckons you to lament your losses honestly, to be allured by the God who loves you, and to discover hope in the midst of your own wilderness.
