Readers will experience the rush of real life adventure, the pure joy that comes with personal discovery, and the confidence that results from a biblical worldview
Longwood, FL (Vocus) September 3, 2010
In 2010, the book of Exodus sounds more like breaking news than history. Nations are pounded by one disaster after another: a pandemic, pollution, devastating storms, and other unprecedented calamities. The economy has gone south with no financial rebound in sight, and leaders in government seem helpless and out of touch. Author Tim Floyd’s Treasure in the Sand: Exodus & the Desert Road to Worship ($18.99, paperback, 978-1-60957-255-6) transports anxious Americans to a distant time and a desperate place where the sky is literally falling. It is a 12-week Bible study that recaptures the awe and mystery of Exodus for 21st century readers. Using the tools of biblical context, historical insight, and personal questions, it dusts off the timeless truths of God and allows readers to apply them up close and personal.
“Readers will experience the rush of real life adventure, the pure joy that comes with personal discovery, and the confidence that results from a biblical worldview,” the author says of his book. “They will come home with tools for unlocking and enjoying the Word of God like never before. They will discover the freedom to walk confidently with Christ every day, even when the world is falling apart.”
Floyd says the research alone for this project consumed 18 months of his life. “To shed new light on the Exodus, I studied the environment of the desert, the skills of desert survival, the history and geography of Egypt, the history of Israel, the Hebrew language, and even the writings of saints who have lived in the desert,” he explains. It is his hope that this study will resonate with readers who seek to thrive even amid life’s deserts.
