Sacred Waiting - Book Review

Sacred Waiting by David Timms

In a world that waits for nothing, we've forgotten how to wait on God.

Our culture today thrives on the immediate and instantaneous. As a consequence, the vital spiritual discipline of waiting on God is neglected, misunderstood--even lost. The good news is that waiting on God is much more than waiting on the clock.

In the tradition of A.W. Tozer and Andrew Murray, pastor and Bible professor David Timms explores the biblical concept of waiting. Along with his thoughtful, transforming insights, he'll help you discover the hidden treasures of waiting on God: joy, abundance, and peace.
My review:
This book is one of those books that gets your attention early on and never lets go.  Mr. Timms has a very easy to read writing style.  He is able to show how the "heroes" of the Old Testament (Noah, Abraham, Moses and David) had to learn to wait on what God had planned for them and how those lessons apply to us today.  Each chapter starts with a prayer and ends with a group discussion.  This book can be used by an individual just wanting to learn to be still and wait on God on his own or in a group setting.  I would recommend reading this book if you're trying to learn to be still and wait.
