Hope, Phil Pringle’s latest book, is one that inspires and pumps life into whoever lays hands on it and turns its pages. The creativity and truth portrayed in this volume captivates the reader throughout this 130-page journey of hope.
In 11 short chapters, the book covers a wide range of information and instructions pertaining to hope. Have you ever wondered how hope functions, exactly? How do you reach for hope in the most hopeless situation? How real is that hope that you are encouraged to embrace—is it just a figment of our imagination that really leads to nothing? You will find enlightening answers to these questions and more.
Pringle, the senior pastor of Christian City Church in Oxford Falls, Sydney, clearly illustrates and explains the biblical perception of hope and how it opens the door to success in one’s life.
The weaving of Bible stories and real life examples into this book makes it easy for readers to relate to, creating visible platforms for them to step on and progressively draw near to hope. Pringle brings ancient Bible stories alive, allowing readers to visualize the transformations that took place in the lives of those characters. He vividly illustrates key points to expand understanding and deepen the reader’s revelation of them. For example, he explains our thoughts to be like a gateway, which determines the entrance of the types of spirits and intentions that can influence our lives.
Hope will definitely transform your life as it draws you ultimately to the Giver of all hope, Jesus Christ. As Pringle writes, “Hope is a person and His name is Jesus.”
