The End of Hope--The Beginning: Narratives of HOpe in the Face of Death and Trauma

Front Cover
Fortress Press, Apr 1, 2014 - Religion - 150 pages
0 Reviews

Our experiences of hope in the face of difficulties are as varied as our lives, and yet there has been very little examination of the ways we hope.

A skilled and compassionate storyteller, McCarroll introduces readers to five expressions of hope through detailed and poignant case studies. On that foundation she then builds a discussion of the possibilities, limitations, and value of each approach. The result is an engaging and optimistic exploration of hope in difficult times.
