Item description for Hope in Troubled Times: A New Vision for Confronting Global Crises by Bob Goudzwaard, Mark Vander Vennen & David Van Heemst...

Provides hope for real-world solutions to life-threatening problems such as global poverty, environmental destruction, and terrorism.

Publishers Description
We want to have it all: financial strength, secure homes, clean air and water for our children. With the latest technological advances available, we deserve to have every dilemma resolved. Isn't that the way it's supposed to work? "Hope in Troubled Times" dares to say "no."
Poverty, terrorism, and overtaxed land are planetary problems that make even believers despair. But the authors point to Christ as the source of hope. Our choice is obvious. We work together, learning to live unselfishly, or we watch civilization sink further into the abyss. With a foreword by renowned human rights activist Archbishop Desmond Tutu, "Hope in Troubled Times" provides real-world solutions to life-threatening problems. The authors show that with God's guidance we can knock down the idols that stunt clear thinking.

Reviews - What do customers think about Hope in Troubled Times: A New Vision for Confronting Global Crises?

You may stop have found the BEST book on the market!!!  Mar 1, 2008
A Must Have!! Amazing, Powerful, Encouraging TRUTH. "Hope In Troubled Times" is one of the BEST books I have ever read concerning the crises of our world today. It is amazing how these authors examine worldwide poverty, environmental degradation, and widespread terrorism and present a "new vision" for these crises. It analyzes the ideologies of the past and weighs them against present societies.

The book suggests we've looked within ourselves long enough to try and solve these problems. Perhaps now, through Scripture's lens, it is time to reevaluate. They recognize how great the crises we face are and encourage each of us to "open our deepest convictions for examinations and review by others...locate areas of common ground, and explore genuine partnership around steps for concrete action." With God, we can turn away from the destructive path we are on.

Look for the analogies on the fruit tree and the circle and cross - what an eye opener! You will truly be inspired!
