Book Description

Why are so many Christians missing out on life?

They know the truth. They understand the scriptures. They trust Jesus as their Savior. Yet the struggles continue. It’s not what God intended.

Like so many followers of Jesus, Luis Palau spent years doing everything he knew he should to live the victorious Christian life he had heard so much about. Yet, in spite of his best efforts, his life felt completely dry—like an endless trek through the worst of deserts.

Through the years of struggle, God revealed himself to Luis in profound ways. And gradually, Luis came to discover four powerful truths that led to a complete renewal of faith.

Just like Luis, these simple, profound truths from scripture are sure to revolutionize your own walk with God. They will help you find the answers to your struggles and discouragement. They will point you toward deep intimacy with God. And most of all, they will help you discover the life God fully intended you to live.

Editorial Reviews

- Billy Graham, Evangelist and Author

"It s obvious God has used Luis in a great way to fulfill His purposes for the Kingdom. I thank him for modeling that which matters most transforming our world by changing lives through the abundant life found in Christ."
- Rick Warren, New York Times bestselling author of Purpose Driven Life

"This book is as simple and invigorating as truth itself. That s because it is truth. It s the truth of the Gospel communicated in the winning, winsome, and wise voice of Luis Palau. Who doesn t desperately need to hear this? Who doesn t want the victorious life promised to us in Scripture? But how to get it? Here s how."
- Eric Metaxas, New York Times bestselling author of Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy

"I remember the first time I saw Luis...what struck me was his genuine sense of concern for every person he came in touch with. It s something you can t fake. He s real."

"One of the great joys of my life ministry has been to be a part of Luis Palau Festivals. I love so much the man...and the passion of the man...Luis Palau."
- Steven Curtis Chapman, Grammy-award winning recording artist

"Luis s faithful commitment to the Gospel, and to the ongoing work of His Kingdom, has been exemplary. I praise God for the impact of his life."
- Anne Graham Lotz, Evangelist and award-winning author of Just Give Me Jesus

"A listing of his campaigns reads like a world atlas: Jakarta, Kiev, Buenos Aires, San Antonio. He has preached on every continent except Antarctica. From Aberdeen, Scotland, to Zurich, Switzerland, Palau has tried to awaken cities to their need for God."
- --Associated Press

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovin it! June 30, 2012
I love Christian fiction, so I don't always find it easy to get into nonfiction. (Except for the Bible!) Even though Out of the Desert is really thought provoking, it remains a quick, easy read. You'll really enjoy Luis' honest, open story of his struggles with victorious Christian living. Through the Spirit's leading & the scriptures, Luis will show you how to live the joy filled, holy, "not perfect but pressing on" Philippians 3:12 life. If you don't struggle with this, you will definitely know Christians who do that you'll want to give this book to! Thank you Luis for sharing your struggles with the world!

5.0 out of 5 stars Title fits the book June 29, 2012
By Doug T
The title of books sums it up well. Many people feel like they are walking around in a desert. Wondering is there more to life than this. Luis' book hits home the simple points to go from dry to springs of joy.

4.0 out of 5 stars A other fine book by a great Christian evangelist June 8, 2012
I have just finished reading Out Of The Desert, the latest book by world renowned evangelist, Luis Palau. The style of Palau, like his preaching, is direct and simple to understand. I found myself reading this book with my Bible open alongside, flipping to passages in Scripture that Palau references as he goes along with his narrative. This is not a complex book, but it is every bit as good a read for someone seeking the Lord as it is for the committed Christian who struggles with his faith and is looking for help and guidance to turn away from the damaging effects of sin. The truth rings loud and clear as you read this book since that is a hallmark of Palau's writing style and his personality. He is a humble servant of the Lord and his words reflect that humility.
