Waiting For Life is a unique Christian “how-to”: instead of addressing the newly converted, it meets the discovering Christian early to midway on the journey of understanding what Christianity is all about. This isn’t “Christianity 101,” it’s more of a 200-level course, moving the reader past the first conversion and onward towards maturity. When the Spirit begins to whisper into a life that “there is more than this!” and the new Christian starts pushing into the depths of Christianity, it can be intimidating without help. Waiting For Life is the “trail guide” helping the reader through to a place of deeper and fuller understanding. It is structured in three parts: “Faith Fundamentals,” a “Life in Christ,” and “Back to Square One,” each with accessible, Bible-based chapters. “Faith Fundamentals” explores why life just seems so hard and why that frustration is part of God’s beckoning to us. It looks at how simple faith can be through the eyes of a new pet dog, and it explains what this “grace” business is about. It equips the reader for harder times, too, by exploring the reality of living in a battle between good and evil. It also explains Christmas, not from a Currier and Ives print but from what the Bible actually teaches. “Life in Christ” assembles those fundamentals into concrete lessons for living a new life, beginning by examining despair and what the promise of a new life means. Thoughts and lessons on forgiveness, on taking Christ’s light into the world, and on finding a good church all lead to living a passionate life and listening for God’s call in it. “Back to Square One” finishes the text with a raw and honest exploration of the challenges the maturing Christian will face. After exploring doubt and its role in our growth, it acknowledges there will be trials along the way and looks at the “final exam” we’ll all face.
