More About the Author

A teacher and author, Bob Sorge has been walking in the crucible of a sustained personal trial for 21 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.

The author's own experiences make the insights of his book so very real and powerful.
Rudy Neufeld
It helped me have perspective on the painful parts of life and how much God really does love us in the midst of these terrible circumstances.
Telling the Truth
Answers don't always come in the way man expects it from God or to understand His ways...perplexing but satisfying.

Format: Paperback
Bob Sorge is pastoral and prophetic in his message about unanswered prayers and suffering. He truly imparts insight, understanding and hope. I highly recommend this book for anyone whose theological underpinnings have been blown out by circumstances. The author guides one out of the minefield of questions such as "Lord, what is happening in my life? Why is nothing working the way it used to work? Why have You seemingly abandoned me?" He leads us through the theological crises of several Biblical characters and encourages the soul with this Word of God. A must read for anyone waiting on God...

Format: Paperback
This book touches the heart of those who wonder whether God heard their prayers. It gives a reason to hope in our waiting. This author writes with such passion, as a man who is waiting on God for healing. This book has deepened my walk with God as I found reason to rejoice in my waiting. I finally understand that God is working and I can trust Him in the midst of circumstances I don't exactly care for. Solid biblical references to Moses, David, Paul, and Job are excellent. A great book for those who are sick of suffering and feel that God hasn't heard their cry!

Fantastic book! If you are looking for a resource to help take you deeper into understanding the word of God and the workings of God, then this it. So many times throughout the book, Mr. Sorge captures exactly what I am thinking and saying as I go through my own "fire" in life right now. His writing on God's purposes for broken faith and broken strength make sense and bring me peace that I am right where God wants me to be. It helps me to know that God is pouring out his mercy and love on me at this time in my life to prepare me for His works and blessings. In short, this book is helping me get where I wanted to go, which was to grow in intimacy with God.
The only caution I have is that this is a very meaty read. It is deep spiritual work and highly thought-provoking. I'm not sure I would recommend it to new Christians because I think you need to have a certain level of maturity in your Christian life to really comprehend and incorporate the teachings from this book into your spiritual walk.
Overall, just a fantastic book!

Format: Paperback
This is another exceedingly hopeful book on living through the periods of testing mature Christians are called to endure. Sorge is the only author I've read so far who emphasizes the "delay" or "waiting" piece of this and why waiting is like going through the fire. Throughout the book he offers pithy memorable hopeful "truths" to meditate upon when the world looks at your situation and calls you deluded. This is a "how to" book, as well as an encouragement to those going through the fire. Don't give up.

Format: Paperback
If you find yourself in the heat of the refiner's fire and have exhausted all your traditional sources of comfort and answers, this book will give you a ton to think about as you develop a new sense of perspective about your journey toward Christ-likness. If you are in the heat of it right now and crave Biblical insights and practical suggestions get this book NOW. Mr. Sorge writes in an accessible style from his own personal experiences and helps serious believers navigate the rough waters. In the end, you still have to work through your issues, but "Fire" will give you the encouragement you need to hang in there. Just outstanding!

Format: Paperback
Wonder why you are in such a tough place in your life? Well, here's your answer! God wants something from you and He will use your circumstances to get it. This book will change your life with its hopeful and reassuring revelations of the intent of God's heart toward His children. I could have stopped reading after the 1st chapter - it was so full of wonderful information - I took a week to let it sink in!! I was sad when I finished the book, but VERY EXCITED ABOUT THE FUTURE!! I recommend this book to every single Christian in search of God's purpose for their life.

The book was informative, well organized thoughts. It was direct with sensitivity. It took you to a place of total surrender and allow you to allow God to purge you. I have brought at least five and given them away. It is very biblical and insightful.

Format: Kindle Edition
Without the revelation and teaching I received through this book, I would not have made it through my extended trial of several years - I would have turned back because of not having the understanding I needed. I believe that this happens to many Christians because they have not had exposure or access to a biblical perspective on delayed answers and trials, as this book teaches on.
I unequivocally recommend this book to every Christian! I have an extensive library of Christian 'teaching' books and after several years since purchasing my own copy, this book is still Number 1 on my list, above all others.
I read it through 3 times over a 3 year period and that is really something because I almost never read a book more than once.
Every time I have read it, I have gotten more out of it and it has ministered to me in a fresh and deeper way than it did before. I truly experienced the anointing of the Holy Spirit each time. And many, many times it was to me as water to a man in the desert dying of thirst. Through the Word, it brings peace to panic, hopelessness and desperation. I have been so amazed that it is so accurate and spot on regarding what I have been going through, that while reading it, I felt it could have been written about me personally!
You will do yourself a huge disservice by not reading this book. It is essential reading for every believer and you will be abundantly blessed by it! I praise God for what He's done in Bob Sorge's life so that I too could be a recipient of the fruit resulting there from. I truly praise God for this book!
