A teacher and author, Bob Sorge has been walking in the crucible of a sustained personal trial for 22 years. Through the fire, God has burned into his soul a passionate message of God's ways and how He walks us through the darkness to the highest heights of grace. Before the trial, Bob wrote the book, EXPLORING WORSHIP (and its accompanying WORKBOOK), which has received international acclaim as a primer for worship ministries. During this 20-year trial, an additional 18 books have emerged from the intensity of the journey. Several of Bob's books address issues of suffering and deliverance (such as IN HIS FACE, THE FIRE OF DELAYED ANSWERS, PAIN PERPLEXITY & PROMOTION, and UNRELENTING PRAYER). Some of his books address issues he has had to confront in his own soul (such as ENVY, DEALING WITH THE REJECTION AND PRAISE OF MAN, and LOYALTY), while other books are for worship ministries and leaders (such as FOLLOWING THE RIVER, IT'S NOT BUSINESS IT'S PERSONAL, GLORY, and OPENED FROM THE INSIDE). His best-selling book is SECRETS OF THE SECRET PLACE (see the curriculum that is available along with the accompanying DVD series), and his latest release (winter 2012) is BETWEEN THE LINES: GOD IS WRITING A STORY WITH YOUR LIFE. Having served as a senior pastor for thirteen years, Bob is now traveling domestically and abroad to bring his message of hope to the body of Christ. Bob and his wife, Marci, live in Kansas City, Missouri with their three children and six grandchildren.
