Item description for The Hopeful Heart by John R. Claypool...

Overview
Hope is to the human spirit what breath is to the physical body-the very fuel that animates our being. So says best-selling author John Claypool. But with hopefulness comes the possibility of disappointment. How can we hope and yet be realistic about what we hope for? What is a hope that doesn't disappoint? In his inimitable pastoral and gentle way, Claypool explores biblically based avenues to hopefulness. Beginning with what we can and cannot know of God's promises, he discusses the value of humility in the face of the Great Mystery that is God. Claypool then examines what we can expect by letting God be God, and he looks at the place of forgiveness and second chances in seeking hope. His conclusion addresses the greatest hope, that of the life to come beyond the grave. This very personal book, written without theological jargon, will be a welcome companion to anyone who is struggling with disappointment, fear, or loss.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Hopeful Heart?

The Hopeful Heart  Apr 21, 2008
John had a unique manner of using the language. In reading this book, as in all of his others, I found myself getting lost in the text, and imagining that I was sitting in a pew listening to him preach.
 
The Hopeful Heart  Sep 12, 2007
Anyone who knew John Claypool, or has read any of his works will find this another inspiring gem. This is a message of hope - what it is and what it is not. This book will not disappoint.
 
The Hopefull Heart  Jan 30, 2006
John Claypool is one of my favorite theologians and this is a short collection from some of his best seminar and sermon topics.
 
A breath of freshness often follows suffering - New Edition  Aug 20, 2003
For my usual visit to the local bookstore I searched for a new Brueggemann, Claypool, Craddock or B. B. Taylor. Lo and Behold! I find there the latest of John Claypool's THE HOPEFUL HEART! Barbara Brown calls this John's best "cumulative wisdom of years to all whose hearts hunger for hope." The accolade by Barbaba C. Crafton urges one to take any chance to hear him preach or to sit with him! I heartily agree.

My reading OPENING BLIND EYES & MENDING THE HEART enriched me to see John's continual search in chapters entitled, "The Avenues to Authenic Hope, "What Can We Expect of God? "Hope and the Life to Come!" What picturesque chapter headings!

Two good friends in later years have experienced Chemotherapy... Both read this book after C S Lewis' GRIEF OBSERVED. They each commented... "We received that Freshness of deep help from John Claypool's book!"

Reading his books while I audited class of "Preaching Genesis," permitted us valuable time of relating to former Professors were gifts! Enjoying person-centered stories of Frederick Buechner, Sam Keen, Tony DeMello, CS Lewis & Madeleine L'Engle were gifts.
"Whenever the word Hope, arises in any conversation, thoughts instinctively turn toward the future. Hope is surely a positive expectation in relation to the Great-Not-Yet."

None can understand interminable grief compared to "his beloved wife, Ann." Our best encounter came at his Book-signing in First Presbyterian Church, even as he was not up-to preaching. She commented to us: "John really does love you."

Thankfully from one who knows John's home in his Great-Not-Yet. Retired Chaplain Fred W Hood
