A Scar On The Face Of The Earth

Why does God call Abraham – the father of faith  into a life of journeying through the wilderness?

Why does God meet Moses, the former prince-of-Egypt, after forty years in the wilderness...

and call him to lead his people through the wilderness for a generation...

before giving them a land that is, for the most part, wilderness?

Why does David, the celebrated giant-slayer, spend some thirteen years in the wilderness?

Why does Paul, the most brilliant scholar of his generation, spend some fourteen years in the wilderness?

Why does Jesus – the author and perfector of our faith  spend forty days and nights in the wilderness?

Why is God so obsessed with the wilderness?

What is he looking for?

And why are we so reluctant to share his passion?
