Publishers Description Who wants to merely go through the motions of religion? We long for something authentic--something worth opening our hearts to, filling our minds with, and giving our lives for. We hope for something better than the "churchianity" of our parents and the vague spirituality of our neighbors, something better than guilt-induced, holier-than-thou morality, better than here-and-now, health-and-wealth promises. In her thought-provoking and authentic style, Nancy Guthrie shows that Jesus himself offers the something better we've been looking for, applying the truths of Hebrews to real-life issues such as guilt, shame, disappointment, hardship, unhealthy obsessions, personal ambition, and fear of death.

Reviews - What do customers think about Hoping for Something Better: Refusing to Settle for Life as Usual?
one of the best books on hebrews!! Nov 9, 2009
We used Nancy Guthrie's book, 'Hoping for something better' - a study on the book of Hebrews - in my Ladies Sunday School Class. Hebrews is not your usual layman's choice for study being an exergetical book on the person of Christ. Many of the ladies have been Christians for years, yet they all agreed that this is one of the best-most thought provoking and encouraging books they have ever read. Our classes have been wonderful. So much that we are now led to use it with our large Ladies' Bible Study. Exciting to see all that God has for us out of Hebrews.
Great Study of Hebrews Mar 16, 2008
A group of women at my church read Nancy's book, Hoping For Something Better, and found it to be very insightful. We enjoyed the fact that Nancy wrote in a way that we could relate to as women and as people living in an age where we are constantly bombarded by the worlds ways. Some of the ladies in our group looked deep into their lifestyles and had to decide if they were living a life that pleased God. I loved the book and even though Hebrews is a difficult book for some to interpret, Nancy broke it down into pieces that made sense. I highly recommend the book for a small group study.
Christ is definitely something better Mar 13, 2008
Our ladies' ministry study took on this book as our guide for studying Hebrews and for discussion. Nancy's writing is extremely easy to follow, totally scriptural and each chapter has thought provoking questions. We each take a turn facilitating the discussion which encourages us to dig even deeper. Every member has expressed how this book has helped her and how easy it is to follow.
wonderful study on the book of Hebrews Mar 10, 2008
I came across this book by Nancy Guthrie last fall, and have since presented it to several of my dearest loved ones. On the surfcace, it's a simple study... not extremely time-consuming or difficult questions, but before you know it, you're realizing truths out of this wonderful book of Hebrews you may have never recognized before! Her format for the study part is different from any other I've done, but it really works. She suggests that you start out by heading to the back, reading the recommended scripture portion for that day, answering her questions on your own and then turning back to the coordinating chapter in the book where she explains it even more deeply and brings for the relativity to her own life. I would highly recommend this study book to anyone - from the beginner just getting his/her 'feet wet' to the more studied bible scholars.
