This book is by far one of the best, spiritually life changing books I have ever read. It challenged me that as God provided daily Manna to Israel in the desert, so too do I need to feast on the daily spiritual nourishment of the Word of God. I highly recommend this book. I am already planning to read it again, it is that rich with truth.

Steve Farrar breaks Scripture down to everyday living with practical and applicable lessons for everyday life. This is a great read teaching about God’s provision in life.
I'd give this 4.5 stars.
I knew nothing about this book or the author when I picked this off the shelf at the library. It just spoke to me. I ignored it. Then I went back and got it. It is just what I needed right now.

Manna = well-timed help from the Lord. I like how Farrar couched this discussion within the context of the children of Israel wandering in the wilderness. I am grateful for his emphasis on spending time in the scriptures every day. I have a renewed desire to do that more

This was a good book about God's provision for us when we are in a wilderness in our lives, and we all go through it at some point (and often more than once). Here are a few quotes to think about:

Regarding the Israelites in the wilderness, "Manna was God's supernatural provision that came down from heaven just in the nick of time every single day for forty years. It was a daily, sufficient, constant supply of God's provision. And it told every day of His limitless power and perfect

This book is full of Biblical encouragement that has some very practical reminders and challenges that God is aware and will provide. At times some of his stories might venture to a place where you wonder if that would happen to you, but his honesty and vulnerability outshine that. I read this book at a unique time in my personal life, so the truth in it really spoke to my soul and heart in a needed and major way. I'm reminded that if God can provide manna for over 2 million people daily for 40 ...more

3.5 Stars - interesting book - some very good points. Some sections that were repeated, but still well a read. The part the hit home the most - the section on the sin of complaining...

This book was amazing. I didn't agree with every word in it, but it was truly "manna" for my soul (no pun intended). Even though it was directed towards men, almost everything in it applies to both men and women. The chapter, "His Time, His Timing" was incredibly rich for me, but the whole thing is worth reading from cover to cover.

Here's on of my favorite quotes:

"So often we are waiting and wondering why God hasn’t answered our pressing need. God never sends us a deliverance that is green.
