Overview Written by an excellent storyteller, this collection features stories of ordinary people trying to find hope in the midst of chaos, challenging times, and everyday living. Told in a simple and charming voice, it will provide inspiration--and a few giggles--for its readers. (Christian)
Snapshots of Hope is a series of reflections on hope, a timely subject in today's world. Written by an excellent storyteller, this collection features stories of ordinary people trying to find hope in the midst of chaos, challenging times, and everyday living. A little girl, a crossing guard at school, gets a spot where no one ever needs help, so she turns her job into one of waving all at the cars and welcoming everyone as they come to school. An old man who stubbornly sits on a rocking chair in his driveway in the midst of a flooded town gives the rest of the town's residents the courage to come home and start cleaning up. Hope, it would seem, is everywhere, even in the most unlikely places.
Told in a simple and charming voice, Snapshots of Hope will provide inspiration and a few giggles for its readers. "

Snapshots of Hope Sep 20, 2006
Webster's "Snapshots" is a masterpiece in ecumenical writing. It draws you in with stories that we all recognize as familiar and comfortable, and without changing gears, it frames and presents difficult theological questions in a familiar and accessible way.
As a youth director in a southern Episcopal church, I was looking for a text around which to build my Senior High youth program. I picked up "Snapshots," and after reading the introduction, I knew I had struck gold. Upon reading through the introduction one Sunday night with my Senior High group, these teenagers were discussing the relevance of the Bible in a technologically advanced, scientifically oriented society. Keep in mind, these were the same kids, who just minutes before, were throwing pillows at each other and ridiculing their friends' Facebook profiles.
If Webster can inspire a roomful of adolescent kids to dig deep into theological questions, such as debating the Bible's relevance as a rulebook, or an "owner's manual," or a history book, or a science book, or a church's bylaws, or merely a scrapbook of snapshots from our collective spiritual past, then just think where it will lead you.
