Completely revised more than fifteen years after its first printing, To Walk and Not Faint is Marva J. Dawn's popular first book. Her devotional reflections examine the fortieth chapter of Isaiah as it deals with many of the critical issues of daily life. The structure of the book bridges head and heart: it offers both exegetical depth and personal involvement for a month of devotional reflection. Each meditation observes the text carefully, considers some of the nuances and implications of the original Hebrew, and identifies how our lives fit into the bigger story of the biblical narrative. Thus, the book both supplies skills for biblical meditation and invites readers to contemplate God's relation to all the cries of human existence, to realize how a relationship with the Trinity gives us the unusual ability to handle all the dimensions of life.
