The Christian life isn't always a walk in the park. Children of Christian parents do die. Christian businessmen do lose their jobs. And husbands of Christian wives do cheat. Being a Christian doesn't protect you from the tough punches life throws. Taking 14 strategies from the biblical account of the Israelite journey, this book offers real help to those on an unexpected, difficult journey. For 40 years the Israelites wandered through a devastating wilderness, suffering many losses, and yet learning some timeless lessons. These lessons, presented here as strategies for modern believers, are simply stated, clearly explained, and beautifully illustrated with dramatic and inspiring stories.

Walking with God
What can we take with us to the Kingdom of God?Bestselling author, pastor, and consummate storyteller John Ortberg tells us we can take pretty much only what we brought to the game. Everything else goes back in the box--the cash atop the corporate ladder, the vacation home at the lake, and the status vehicle in between.All the tokens, game pieces, and prizes are left behind when we walk away from the table. The only real "winnings" we claim and keep are our own souls and the love we have for Christ and each other.If you think you might need a better game plan--one that offers an eternal perspective--this strategy-filled playbook walks you through what it takes to really win big at the game of life.Product InformationFormat: PaperbackNumber of Pages: 256Vendor: ZondervanPublication Date: 2009Dimensions: 8.50 X 5.50 (inches)ISBN: 0310325056ISBN-13: 9780310325055I'm a product detail.
