We see Jesus, we believe in Jesus and we wait for Jesus, yet still we suffer. This book offers real and rugged answers in life’s dark places. Discover how to live with hope in a fallen, messed- up, "wild" world, and be encouraged.

Walking through Genesis 3, Dan DeWitt shows us how we can look at this world realistically but without despairing, as we wait for God to keep his promise to bring us out of the wild and into his new creation. It’s the contrast between Eden, where everything reflects God’s perfection, and exile, where everything is spoiled by sin. The book helps us survive living in exile - Life in the Wild - until “the glorious day when God will welcome us home, out of the wild”.

This book holds dark and light in balance. It shows how we are living with the effects of the fall (we are messed-up people living in a messed-up place) - but God’s promise, made in Eden, serves as a beacon of light to guide our steps in this fallen world.

Living in our broken world, full of pain and disappointment and sin, is difficult for all of us. In Life in the Wild, Dan DeWitt reminds us that the mess we live in is, like us, awaiting a future redemption. Read along as Dan teaches us to navigate these challenges and anticipate the arrival of our perfect hope, Jesus, who will make an end of death and make his blessings flow far as the curse is found.

This is a fresh and urgent field guide to life in the real world — the world of brokenness, tragedy and disappointment. Dan DeWitt gives us not only clarity and realism, but also wonderful hope as he consistently and carefully points us to Christ. It did me good to read it!

Life is wild, and by wild I don't mean awesome and fun. Life can be wildly tough. In Life in the Wild, Dan DeWitt teaches us why life is terrible at times and where to turn. But there's hope and you'll find our Hope shared in these pages!

Independent reviews

Accessible, short, written to engage

Benjamin Vrbicek, Fan & Flame, January 25th 2018

The book is accessible, short, written to engage someone skeptical or new to Christianity, and full of hope. Like the Bible, it’s book-ended with a discussion of Eden, as it was and as it will be when God restores this world. In the final chapter, which is on death, he writes, “God’s final enemy, death itself, has to die. . . . [T]he Bible makes it certain: one day death will be placed in a coffin. In the last act of human history, we will read death’s obituary”... continue reading
