In this fallen world, even those who love God face unexpected trials and seemingly unsolvable problems - in a word, the wilderness. Brian and Candice Simmons share insights from their experience as missionaries, helping readers to understand God's way of bringing them from wilderness to miracle!
:"Why must I wait so long for your promise to be fulfilled?" We can all identify with those words for we all have
unresolved issues that surface in our journey with Christ.
In spite of what others will tell you, the Christian journey is not a life of endless bliss with a perfect marriage, perfect relationships, and a perfect financial portfolio. Perfection can only be found in Christ alone, for the world we live in is a fallen world. Even though life is sweet for the lovers of God, we all still face times of unexpected trials, unpredictable difficulties, and seemingly unsolvable problems. In a word, this is the wilderness.
Every child of God will have a wilderness experience, but not everyone has to have a wilderness wandering. The good news is you will make it through to the other side. The Wilderness will help you to understand God's ways of bringing His sons and daughters from the wilderness to a miracle! You will find the place where miracles are born - God's heart of love for His people!
Brian and Candice share with us some of the difficult seasons during their time as tribal missionaries in Central and South America. They encountered demonic powers, lost their possessions in a flooding river, and even experienced their daughter being bitten by a venomous snake. But the true story that unfolds in this book takes place in the many wilderness encounters that the people of Israel faced after leaving Egypt in the powerful miracle recorded in the book of Exodus. The backdrop of their stories give us insights into
understanding our own stories - challenges of faith, delayed answers to prayer, and miraculous interventions that display God's glory.
DR. BRIAN SIMMONS is the lead translator of The Passion Translation. The Passion Translation (TPT) is a heart-level translation that uses Hebrew, Greek, and Aramaic manuscripts to express God's fiery heart of love to this generation, merging the emotion and life-changing truth of God's Word. The hope for TPT is to trigger inside every reader an overwhelming response to the truth of the Bible and to reveal the deep mysteries of the Scriptures in the love language of God, the language of the heart. Brian is currently translating the Old Testament.
After a dramatic conversion to Christ in 1971, Brian and his wife, Candice, answered the call of God to leave everything behind and become missionaries to unreached peoples. Taking their three children to the tropical rain forest of Central America, they planted churches for many years with the Paya-Kuna people group. Dr. Simmons established leadership for the churches that Jesus birthed, and, having been trained in linguistics and Bible translation principles, assisted with the translation of the Paya-Kuna New Testament.
After their ministry overseas, Brian and Candice returned to North America, where Brian began to passionately work toward helping people encounter the risen Christ. He and his wife planted numerous ministries, including a dynamic church in New England (U.S.). They also established Passion & Fire Ministries, under which they travel full time as Bible teachers in service of local churches throughout the world.
Brian is the author of numerous books, Bible studies, and devotionals that help readers encounter God's heart and experience a deeper revelation of God as our Bridegroom King, including Throne Room Prayer, The Sacred Journey, Prayers on Fire, The Divine Romance, and The Vision.
Brian and Candice have been married since 1971 and have three children as well as precious grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Their passion is to live as loving examples of a spiritual father and mother to this generation.
DR. BRIAN & CANDICE SIMMONS, together with their three children, spent nearly eight years in the tropical rain forest of the Darien Province of Panama. Brian served as a church planter, translator, and consultant. Brian assisted in the Paya-Kuna New Testament translation project. He is the lead translator of The Passion Translation and is currently translating the Old Testament.
