Seasons of Waiting

Full Product Description

We're all waiting for something.

For some of us, it's a spouse. For others, it's children. For still others, it's physical healing.

Unfortunately, when things don't go as planned and we end up having to wait, it's often hard to trust God's timing. But while there will always be delays and disappointments in this life, there is still hope; God has a purpose and a plan for every season of our lives, even when it feels like he just keeps saying no.

In Seasons of Waiting, Betsy Childs Howard points us to examples of waiting from Scripture that teach us to understand our waiting as a parable of God's unfolding kingdom.

In the process, she shows us how the gospel informs our response to unmet longings and delayed dreams--directing our attention to the day when Christ will return and all our waiting will be over.

Seasons of Waiting by Childs Howard, Betsy was published by Crossway in May 2016 and is our 11292nd best seller. The ISBN for Seasons of Waiting is 9781433549496.

"The Bible and the history of the church are full of stories of God revealing incredible dreams and rescuing men and women in dramatic settings, such as Moses, Mary, John Wesley, and Pascal. But of course, it does not always happen that way--as Hannah, Elizabeth, Jeremiah, and countless other believers through the ages can testify. In Seasons of Waiting, Betsy Childs Howard offers hope for the weary traveler wrestling with this tension. Through her own story and others, she demonstrates how to wait well upon the faithful One who knows us and loves us and has a plan and purpose for each of us--and who often surprises us with gifts of which we may have never dreamed."

Ravi Zacharias, Founder and President, Ravi Zacharias International Ministries; author, Jesus Among Other Gods

"The thesis of this book is simple but profound: God does not leave us alone in the many 'waiting rooms' of life, but uses seasons of pain, absence, and longing to draw us unto himself. Deeply personal and biblically wise, this is a book every Christian should read."

Timothy George, Founding Dean, Beeson Divinity School; General Editor, Reformation Commentary on Scripture

"We are all in a season of waiting, even in the moments when we think we have arrived. Betsy Childs Howard speaks comforting truth to our anxious hearts, especially when we worry that our waiting will never end. What are you waiting for? Get a copy of this book and ask a friend to read with you!"

Gloria Furman, pastor's wife, Redeemer Church of Dubai; author, The Pastor's Wife and Missional Motherhood
