Enduring a crisis of faith is difficult, but it is doubly difficult for those in spiritual leadership. Not only must we face the bewildering challenges of our own relationship with God, but at the same time we must be mindful of those we serve.
In this study, we will look at the lives of several biblical characters who faced their own crises of faith. We will see that a crisis of faith is a normal part of the spiritual maturing process, and that we're not alone in our desert experience. We will also examine some of the possible reasons that we go through faith crises, and we will remind ourselves that though we may falter in our faith, our God remains faithful to us.
