Rather than looking ahead to spring, The Promise of Winter explores the signs of promise and presence found in the winter of the soul. For all who experience the disappointments, frustrations, doubts, and despair that are a part of daily life, this beautiful volume holds up the presence and promise of God. It is this presence and promise that provide spiritual strength to help people live during ordinary days and fallow seasons. Through its striking photographs of winter and reflective meditations on psalms, this volume leads readers on a journey through the heart's winter to the discovery of the God of all seasons.
