As "pits of despair" go, I hope you never have one as severe as any of these, but if you do, the same God that comforted and rescused them is available to do. The story summaries are written in first person, which help us feel closer to each of the five biblical characters whose life experiences in desperate conditions affirm that God take personal interest in us. The chapter titles are:
1. "I'll Be Fed by a Bird" (Elijah)
2. "The Woman Says: 'We'll Eat and Die' " (The widow at Zarephath)
3. "This Is a Plan?" (Joshua)
4. "Me, of all People!" (Rahab)
5. "This Is an Army?" (Gideon)
6. "Desperate Shouting" (Bartimaeus)
7. (summary) God Promises: I've Got You Covered

NOTE: This volume of the Vitality Bible Study Series is still in pre-publication testing. It is possible that little tweaks may be made before we get a quantity printed. (We're also trying to accumulate the money to do that.) You can help us with that by using this with a group--any kind of group--and telling us about your experience. These books are 8.5 x 11", in full color, wire bound. They cost far more to make than our selling price, our way of letting you help us make this study better.
