Item Description...
Do you feel lost in the desert?
Are you resting in life?s green pastures?
Do you long for a mountaintop experience?

In this inspiring book, Beth Booram helps us to identify the landscapes of our lives?periods when our spiritual surroundings shift, and we find ourselves relating to God and the world in a different way. She gives us language for framing our experiences and talking about the varied, surprising, confusing, rewarding, and dissonant intervals of our spiritual lives.

Each chapter contains a description of the landscape, an overview of the biblical story and how it relates to that landscape, life skills we develop as we travel through this particular terrain, and personal stories from others who have traversed the landscape.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Thoughtful, Creative and Practical  Jan 28, 2008
I really resonated with Beth Booram's concept that life's ups and downs place us in various landscapes (i.e. the desert, the deep waters, the land between). As she goes through each of 8 possible landscapes (although she says the number is unlimited), she shows us how God uses the various terrains of each to enlarge and transform us. They don't come in any specific order and don't last for any predetermined amount of time. We can move in and out of them, we can repeat landscapes, we may never even experience some of them. With each landscape, she describes its geography and tells us what we can learn about God and what we can learn about ourselves as we experience it. Each landscape has the ability to transform us if we let it.

I enjoyed Beth's poetic way of expressing herself and describing these landscapes of life. Her use of personal examples makes her ideas more accessible and real, and her honest, developing relationship with God is inspiring. This is the sort of book we continually return to for inspiration as life twists and turns us.

The concluding paragraph of the book sums it up well..."Our search is not simply to find God. Nor is it to find ourselves. Rather, it is to be present to God and ourselves through the varied landscapes of life." I long to live my life in this manner.
A great read and a lasting reference  Jan 20, 2008
The Wide Open Spaces of God is an excellent book. The author uses the metaphor of landscapes to describe the various stages and scenarios of life. But it's not the analogies that make this such a wonderful book, it's the prescriptive advice the author provides which help make this a fantastic read and an even better, lasting reference.

For example, one of the landscapes is called "The Valley of Darkness." It's just what you'd expect, namely, a period of deep turmoil or unexpected/unexplained difficulty. Beth talks about our knee-jerk tendencies where we want to "light our own torches" and move away from the darkness; without giving away too much of the story here, the author advises against moving away from the darkness and her argument is quite compelling.

I read this book on a recent cross-country flight and found myself stopping and thinking about the various stages of my own life, how I reacted then and how the author's insights challenged me to react and respond differently going forward. I learned a lot about myself along the way and I'll bet you will too. Highly recommended.
"Wide Open Spaces of God" excellent reading!  Nov 29, 2007
Beth Booram's book is both deep and practical in guiding us toward a closer experience of God. It is soul searching for my personal devotional use as well as an excellent tool for small group interaction. Great questions. Beth seems to speak from her personal insights and experiences as well as from accurate study of The Bible. I would highly recommend it.
inventive, insightful and eloquent  Sep 27, 2007
The author captures our walk with God in new and interesting ways. She shares much of herself in the pages and takes the reader along on her journey. The book has bible study qualities as she shares scripture to illustrate each point. I have much to reflect on after my read.
