Following Jesus Through the Holy Land

A six-session video Bible study by Max Lucado

Receive free access to the study videos and other Bible study resources when you join.

How do you trust God when you don't know all of the details?

Have you been there? Have you prayed or cried out - How long, Lord?

How long will my trials last? 

How long until you answer my prayers?

When will this pass? 

When will you reveal your plans for my future?

In The God of the How and When, the first in a four-part video Bible study series companion to the 2022 bestseller The God of the Way, we'll join Kathie Lee Gifford and Rabbi Jason Sobel for a journey into God's Word and the stories of Abraham, Sarah, Moses, Joshua, and Mary - five heroes of the faith who were called to wait on God. 

By studying their stories, we'll learn how to trust that the God of the How and When will fulfill his promises, and how, we, too, can step out in faith and obedience even when the future is uncertain.

"Thank you Allison Allen for speaking truth out loud in this culture of "I'm enough" and "I've got this"...He is enough and only by His grace are we able to have true joy in this life! ~ Susan M." 

Susan M, Verified Buyer

“If you've ever felt unseen and insignificant, this book is for you… it will affirm your worth and show you the overlooked value of hiddenness. I love the continuous nature metaphors of shells and the sea from the Carolina coast that Allison Allen records so beautifully in her lovely writing style...”

Sarah, GoodReads Review of Seen, Secure, Free

"WOW, this book really spoke to me. I am not one who needs praise and acknowledgement from others...I feel Allison Allen has a clear message to those reading this book: You are SECURE when you allow God to lead you and not the opinions of others. I HIGHLY recommend!

A note from Allison

As someone who has spent a good portion of her life as an actor, there is a terrible tendency in me to equate activity with authentic existence. Visibility with validity. Fame with favor. Though I am not proud of it, there are times I confuse making a name for myself (with all the spiritual bells and whistles attached, of course) with lifting high the name of Jesus. When others don’t seem to see me, I can struggle to remember my worth. When I surrender to the allure of shiny, worldly things, I can be infested with insecurity. 

I can allow my heart to be slyly twisted—focusing on lesser loves, valuing lesser things. I chase hard after them and then wonder why my tank is empty. Where’s the joy? The power, vision, and hope? The security and freedom?

But eventually—often after a storm—I stop, search God’s horizon, and see there the great call of the gospel rising afresh like the morning sun, and I remember:

Hide yourself in the finished work of the cross, heart.
Find joy in the hidden life, heart.

I’ve lived that journey this past year on the stormy beaches of my life. I’ve meandered through some of the lesser-known, concealed characters of Scripture and the lessons of Colossians and found myself in a place of surprising beauty and strength.

I’m ready to walk with you along this path. Let’s get sand between our toes. Let’s run the beach together and look to the One who is ever and always bringing deeper transformation and freedom.

With undying hope,

- Allison
