The Exodus story is your story.
The Israelites' liberation from Egypt and journey to the promised land is one the Bible's most compelling narratives. But the Exodus isn't just a long-ago Bible story. We each find ourselves enslaved: to work, to destructive relationships, to food, to spending . . . but beyond our personal Egypt lies God's promised land.
Chuck DeGroat shows how our wilderness journey helps us face our fears, receive our new identity, experience transformation, and live into our newfound freedom. Discussion questions follow each chapter.

In the best of ways, this is not a quick fix
Church DeGroat's "Leaving Egypt" has transformed my life. As most books written by counsellors/therapists do, it brought me to places in my past and present that I didn't realize existed, and I am slowly learning to deal with those things today. What stood out about "Leaving Egypt" was the inter-weaving of Chick's story, the stories of his clients, and a heavy focus on how their lives (and the reader's) have a haunting resemblance to the Exodus journey of the Bible. I've read other books about how to achieve the victorious Christian life, but they fall short compared to "Leaving Egypt" simply because they lack the honesty to admit that Christians must suffer in order to see God. It doesn't mean it has to be a 24/7 hell, but it does mean that we have been invited to share in Christ's sufferings, and by doing so we become more like Him.

God's grace in the desert
A blessing of a book written in a spirit of humility and vulnerability. It is a loving reminder to head straight into the pain in our lives and know that there is where we will find God on a true, deeper and more genuine relationship than we have ever had.
