Waiting on God: What to Do When God Does Nothing by Wayne Stiles takes the reader into the depths of the life of Joseph. Both the recorded life and the gaps are unlocked as the pain and waiting and transformative work of the Lord is explored.
Rather than diving into fantasy and speculation, the author keeps grounded in the Scriptures while also emphasizing the power of God in the uncomfortable times of waiting that Joseph endured. More than just a Bible study, the book connects the life of Joseph, his brothers, and Jacob to the life of the reader.
Throughout the book, the power of God to transform us even when we don’t see or understand what is going on in and around us is revealed. The reminders in Waiting on God make it a book to keep on the shelf to pull out and reread in the future.
