We are currently reading Those Who Wait by Tanya Marlow. We will be discussing this book at our next meeting, on 3 February 2018. Here’s how the author describes her book:
“Everyone is waiting for something – a bus; an appointment; better health; a spouse; a space you can call your own; the time to do what you want to do, not just what you have to do. Ultimately we are all engaged in the longest wait of the world – Christ’s coming, and Christ’s return.
Yet waiting is hard – awkward, irritating at best. For those waiting for decades, it can be agonising, bringing the perfect storm of disappointment, doubt, frustration and isolation.
This book is for those who are waiting, which is all of us. It is for those who find waiting hard, which is most of us.
How does the Bible tell us to wait? It’s tempting to think it tells us to live stoic, uncomplaining lives, with compulsory inner joy.
But the Bible is a lot more honest about the weight of waiting. As it turns out, the Bible characters were humans who battled with waiting, just as we do. Those Who Wait tells the stories of Sarah, Isaiah, John the Baptist and Mary in their own voices, immersing ourselves in their world. Through their lives we come face to face with ourselves – and the mysterious grace of God.
Those Who Wait will comfort the despondent and unsettle the comfortable.”
