This is the PDF digital download version of this companion study guide.
Erwin Raphael McManus' highly creative series Signs, explores the contrast between spiritual barrenness and Gods promise that He is doing a new thing for His creation; uses the metaphor of wind to explore the ideas of breath, life, and Gods Holy Spirit, who is the source of all life; portrays a hunter sprinting through a lush jungle, trees whipping past him as he searches for a path. The man eventually comes to a symbolic tree of life and faces a choice of his own. We discover that love is a choice, faith is a choice, and in fact, choice can be a creative and deeply spiritual act. A barren field. A stark landscape. As the poet Solomon said, 'There is nothing new under the sun.' McManus once resonated with the loneliness of Solomons words. He wondered what good could come from the emptiness of the world. Then he looked more closely. He saw sprouts cracking dirt. He saw God breathing warmth into dust. And he saw earth transform from darkness to a source of life.
