barrenness

“The large question is that the promise does delay, even to the point of doubt. It is part of the destiny of our common faith that those who believe the promise and hope against barrenness nevertheless must live with the barrenness.”

– Walter Brueggemann, excerpt from commentary on Genesis 15: 1-21
