Champions in the Wilderness: Fifty-Two Devotions to Guide and Strengthen Emerging Overcomers By Bob Santos

Champions In The Wilderness is a wonderful devotional that leads the reader through the difficult stages in their life and into a deeper relationship with the Father, helping us to overcome the many challenges we face and emerge victorious in our Christian faith.

Well-written and simple to follow, this book helps the reader to rely on God and His promises in every situation. Some of the many topics covered include seeking wisdom, having a proper spiritual foundation, learning to hear God’s voice, and planting our faith firmly on our hope in Christ’s salvation. It also deals with the issue of doubt and double-mindedness, explains the difference between faith and wishful thinking, shows the importance of forgiveness, and teaches the reader how to find rest, purpose and security in their life.

Perfectly designed for a bible study group, each devotional begins with a relevant quote, scripture, and ends with probing questions, an action step, closing prayer, and further scripture reading.

I really enjoyed this book, and found the layout to be perfect for our home bible-study group. Bob Santos writes from the heart with love and humility and a realistic approach to life that makes this book both relevant and usable for everyday life. Highly recommended!

About the Author

Bob Santos burns with a passion to help form and equip a generation of world changers for Christ.

After graduating from Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP) in 1982 with a bachelor of science degree in chemistry, Bob went on to spend 15+ years working as an analytical chemist. Longing to make a more significant impact in our world, he took a major step of faith to serve as a campus minister at IUP. While challenging in many regards, the years spent learning how to reach and grow disciples of Christ through college ministry proved to be extremely meaningful.

In the spring of 2006, Bob and his wife, Debi, founded Search for Me Ministries, Inc. (SfMe Ministries) with a vision to reach a broader audience than what they could through campus ministry. At the heart of SfMe Ministries is an emphasis on investing in those who desire to invest in the lives of others.

In addition to serving as the President of SfMe Ministries, Bob is currently the Southwest Pennsylvania Area Representative for Elim Fellowship. He likes to fish, hunt, and garden as time allows.
