Upper Room Turn Toward Promise: The Prophets and Spiritual Renewal

When we face a crisis of faith, how can we find hope and promise?

Spiritual renewal involves change and redirection. In Turn Toward Promise, Indermark draws on the stories of Isaiah, Jeremiah, and Ezekiel to take readers on a journey of spiritual renewal that's relevant today.

These prophets disrupted the cozy culture and false well-being of Israel during their day. In fact, Isaiah, Jeremiah, and Ezekiel provoked much crisis in their pronouncements of God's judgment on Israel. Then, as now, religious self-assuredness results in stiff resistance to transformation and change.

"Making connections between modern-day conditions and ancient prophetic works involves acknowledging that God is and will be sovereign in history and in life," Indermark writes. "God even may be at work when long-standing institutions are shaken, including those that routinely invoke the name of God."

Follow the turning points of Israel and push beyond your comfort zones with the provocative daily scripture-based meditations, spiritual exercises, and prayers included in this book. Turn Toward Promise may be used over a period of six weeks for personal reflection or as a small-group resource on spiritual renewal. A Leader's Guide is incorporated in the book.
