Publishers Description When no hope is left, to whom should we turn? Through the words of Jesus as He was dying on the Cross, Jack Hayford unfolds the secret of triumphing over the ultimate season of suffering. Establishing a framework for dealing with hardship, "Hope for a Hopeless Day" challenges readers to examine the way they handle trials and encourages them to focus on the power that frees--the cross. Here are real-life stories of individuals who triumphed over their "hopeless days." Readers will be heartened by their stories of bravery and integrity--even while facing the anguish of marital infidelity or financial collapse. Although facing what seems like insurmountable odds, "we are called to hope just as surely as we are called to the Cross, for the Savior who speaks there is teaching us the way to live as surely as He is dying to give us life." "Hope for a Hopeless Day" does more than encourage you to endure; it inspires you to overcome.

Reviews - What do customers think about Hope For A Hopeless Day?
Optimism you can carry with you Sep 18, 2007
While this is a small, pocket-sized book that you can carry with you anywhere, its message is an important one. Hayford advises, "To find hope for a hopeless day, begin by forgiving everyone who seems to be trying to ruin your life." This is a not only a common theme for those who believe in Christ, but one that Alcoholic Anonymous espouses quite frequently. By praying for others who treat you unjustly, it frees you up to focus and pray for yourself.
Hayford goes on to say, after talking about Christ on the Cross, "When you're going through a bad day, don't neglect taking care of those who are near to you, for you may yet be the one who brings them hope." This powerful sentence is demonstrative of the excellent writing in Hope for a Hopeless Day. Littered with stories about marital infidelity, death, and illness along with biblical quotes, Christians are buoyed up with hope because they are called to it through Jesus, even in the midst of what may be insurmountable odds.
Every chapter ends with some questions and then a suggested reading from the Bible. This helps put the message of Hayford's imparted story into perspective and gives you some time for introspection.
A good little book that packs a lot of great stories and ideas into its 120-some odd pages.
Armchair Interviews says: Perfect to carry around with you for thought-provoking optimism.
