Wandering the Wilderness is a guidebook for individuals who are unsure of their path or are questioning the trails they were taught in the past. Author Ray Friesen is a former pastor and at the same time a life-long "believing skeptic." He's an advocate for "abundant living" and the guideposts that mark it, as outlined by "Wholehearted Living" researching Dr. Brené Brown (The Gifts of Imperfection). This informs Friesen's thoughtful submission for a renewed approach to finding meaning in a life informed by the Bible in a time when the relevance of those Ancient Writings is often thrown into question.

In Wandering the Wilderness, Friesen has us stop, listen, and learn at thirteen "trail posts" along life's pilgrimage. In addition to Brown, he draws on the Ancient Writings (Bible) with the help of scholars like Walter Brueggemann, Eugene Peterson, and Peter Enns. All of this is shaped in the context of his personal life experiences, including his journey with cancer and chemotherapy. The result is a book for all who are looking for a path in their old wilderness. He invites the reader to understand that developing a Chrisitan faith and spirituality can help re-energize a life at times burdened with difficulty or plagued with aimlessness, even, maybe especially, in this post-modern age.

Here is a thoughtful, informed guide for wanderers weary from the journey and skeptics wondering where or if faith still matters. Whether you read it along or with fellow wanderers and/or skeptics wishing to believe, Wandering the Wilderness has the potential to transform your wandering.
