FOR DISTRIBUTION OUTSIDE THE USA. In The Land Between, author Jeff Manion uses the biblical story of the Israelite's journey through Sinai desert as a metaphor for being in undesired, transitional space. After enduring generations of slavery in Egypt, the descendants of Jacob travel through the desert (the land between) 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. The book provides fresh biblical insight for people traveling through undesired transitions (e.g. foreclosure, unemployment, parents in declining health, post-graduate uncertainty, business failure, etc.) who are looking for hope, guidance, and encouragement. While it is possible to move through transitions and learn little, they provide our greatest opportunity for spiritual growth. God desires to meet us in our chaos and emotional upheaval, and he intends for us to encounter his goodness and provision during these upsetting seasons.

When you're caught between what once was and what now is you're in the land between. In our case it was sudden and unexpected. Time seemed to come to a near standstill and even breathing seemed to require effort and thought.

My husband and I studied the book of Job. Not what might be high on the 'to do list' in the middle of being thrust into having most every aspect of your life turned upside down. But, we felt God leading us to study Job and we feel through it God prepared us for what was yet to come by studying Job.

We've dropped many cliches like, "Things can't get any worse." And, we aren't fond of hearing "How are you?" Because it's meant more as a greeting than truly concerned about how the person is doing. People expect the response to be "Good" or "I'm doing well" and typically not concerned about how you are doing. We were lying to answer it as people have come to expect. We resorted to, "We're hanging in there" because we felt making it through another minute, hour, day, etc. we truly were hanging in there. We've become mindful and that we mean it when we ask "How are you?"

Nearly 6 months into our situation a friend gave us THE LAND BETWEEN. This friend had also been through so much in the past 3+ years. Some of it very similar to our situation, with much more besides. She is an example of perseverance and through it all growing in her faith. We are so thankful for her friendship and how she came along side us in our struggle and sharing this book with us.

Our prayer is that God use us to help others as our friend helped for us. If, God places others in our path to help we will give them a copy of THE LAND BETWEEN and walk with them on their journey.

Jeff Manion does an amazing job guiding the reader through the story of the Isrealite's journey and how that relates to each of us today as we journey through life. Truly, God used Jeff Manion to deliver this lesson to each of us seeking to understand God in life's journey and life's difficult situations.

With my husband and I having experienced a sort of free-fall of disaster, despite the efforts of well-made plans, I sought counsel in redefining our lives. I found it here, and shared my readings with my husband. There is always a solid, underlying biblical message, but it is applied in such a way that we, as 21st century people, can relate. A year later, we are coming out of this difficulty, but I still often refer to the book. As Jeff Manion writes, you can read a thought-provoking book, but it is not until you are in the pain of transition that you transform permanently. The book provides an excellent guide. I believe the insights apply to those who are more open and spiritual, as well as those who are specifically Bible-based. If you feel that you need change as you are marking time in the metaphorical (or real) desert, this book will help clear your vision and offer perspective.

I've been in a place of transition for a few years now, so I could definitely appreciate the subject. Still, haven't we all heard about the Exodus as an illustration for our lives and heard these difficult times called being in the wilderness? I didn't think I'd find much new.

In one respect, I didn't. The author takes us through the Exodus and brings up key lessons along the way. Yet...there was something wonderful and new here. It wasn't just the usual points.

One thing he'd did excellently was to intersperse the journey of the Israelites with modern stories of people in transition.

I also appreciated how he emphasized that the wilderness can build our faith, but it can also destroy it. He talked about it being our choice. He also discussed the difference between complaining ABOUT God and complaining TO God, how it's okay to be honest about what we are going through as long as we are going to God to seek him in the midst of it.

Another important point was made early on: "For the story to work its intended transformation in our lives, we need to see ourselves as prone to the same weaknesses, capable of the same failings, and tempted by the same sins. It is imperative to associate with the characters in the story even when they are misbehaving, rather than placing ourselves above them." (location 216) We can only learn if we are willing to face our own weaknesses and sin, not if we think ourselves above it.

I definitely recommend this book.

When the Israelites escaped from slavery in Egypt and headed for the Promised Land, it took them a lot longer to get there than they had anticipated. Most people experience times in their lives where they get caught in the wilderness between what their lives used to be like and what they hope their lives might one day become. Jeff Manion has written this book about it.

The author has himself spent plenty of time in "the land between", with the book relating the story of how his family was thrown into chaos when his mother was killed in a car accident, and then the story of how his church struggled through a difficult period when plans to build a proper church building were delayed for several years.

The book is divided into five parts, labelled complaint, meltdown, provision, discipline and growth. Time spent in "the land between" can be an opportunity to grow closer to God or to grow further away from him; the author's advice is that you choose the former rather than the latter. In my view this book is likely to be helpful to Christians regardless of whether they are currently going through a difficult period, as everyone from time to time gets to visit "the land between".

I really enjoyed this book. Handling life difficulties when you are stuck in a "wilderness" is very inspiring. I started reading this book right after I broke my ankle and was waiting to go into surgery. It had been recommended by a pastor I heard some years ago. I found it refreshing. The author talks about life's difficulties without being all sugary sweet but also without being a Debbie downer. I really enjoyed it and it has helped me through this hard time in my life
