Item description for The Allure of Hope: Gods Pursuit of a Womans Heart by Janice Meyers Proett...

Are You Afraid Of Hope?

Hope holds out the alluring promise of the good that is yet to come. But what happens when your longing is met with unrealized requests, disease, severed friendships, infertility, singleness, lost passion, wayward children, or the sheer repetition of life? Many women forego the promise of hope in order to avoid the pain that disappointment or loss often brings.

Hope can be painful, but without it, we cannot continue. And while refusing to dream may protect us from the harsh winds of reality that buffet our souls, it can also keep us from experiencing the beauty that God is creating in our lives. Where do we find the courage to keep an open heart focused on the sure future God has promised?

"We either respond to hope with our hearts," says Jan Meyers, "or we try to push it down. Responding to hope brings a deepened sense of thirst and ache, but it reminds us what it truly means to be a woman." Meyers? refreshingly honest and compassionate look at both sides of hope will help you find the courage to keep seeking - even in those places where hope seems to have been destroyed. And while hope is never without risk, its transcending power can make you more fully alive.

Reviews - What do customers think about Allure Of Hope?

Review - The Allure of Hope  Jul 3, 2008
Some great concepts in this book! Push through some of the analogies in the early chapters and you won't be sorry that you read it.
Worth reading  Jun 13, 2008
It is entirely possible (and biblical, most importantly) to yearn for something all the while, trusting the Lord for His provision of it in His time, if He wills. This was a refreshing book about the true heart of a woman created by God, one who feels deeply. It encouraged me to ache over lost things, desired things, missed things.

The author comes from her own heartache of a broken engagement in her past and knows how to be raw and real before the Lord.
A guy's view.  Sep 13, 2007
Beautifully written, poetic and thought provoking. Though it is geared toward a woman's perspective, I connected with Jan's message and found myself longing for more of God.
This book will lead you to keep your heart open  May 17, 2004
A must read for women in their 20's, 30's or 40's. Jan calls us to keep our hearts open in the deepest diappointment. Book studies on this book are popping up in all sorts of place, at my church, within christian ministries etc...A book that finally speaks to the true heart of a woman..
touching and inspiring  Jan 7, 2004
I found this book rather randomly one day while I was shopping for a gift. I searched for John Elderidge's book, Wild At Heart, and bought it for a growing Christian friend. Under recommended titles, I saw The Allure of Hope by Jan Meyers. Having read Wild at Heart, I had been wanting something similar that addressed the issues faced in a woman's life rather than a man's. John Elderidge actually wrote the introduction to this book and recommended it highly. So, respecting him as an author, I bought a copy.
I absolutely loved it and I have since given away copies to friends and family alike. I felt like it was relevant to events in my life and helped me to work through some problems that I have encountered as a developing Christian. Many Christian books that address lifestyles and relationships with God seem "preachy" to me, and I have a difficult time getting into them. I also feel like they dwell too heavily on discipline and abstinance, neglecting the source of discontent that leads people astray. Jan Meyers, however, does an excellent job by speaking to the reader as a peer. Her voice sounds like that of a friend and it conveys a sense of pain that she is experiencing and working through, much like her audience. Her writing, while it may lack the eloquence and development of John Elderidge, is powerful nonetheless because of its honesty, tenderness, and warmth.
This book is an excellent read for any woman searching for a closer and purer relationship with God. I plan on using it in a Bible study I am leading later this year.
