Wherever we live, we are not immune to the tensions, fears, regrets, hopes and dreams of the world as it is. We face these human realities within our communities, our families and even in our own hearts. In this book, we trace the heartbeat of hope throughout the Old Testament, the pulse of longing for God’s Messiah. We join our faith with the people of God who, over three millennia, have longed and lived for the world as it could be … Gods kingdom of reconciliation, justice and peace. We shall explore the way hope and trust are interchangeable in Hebrew Scripture and think about our own approach to these words in the light of the Gospels.
Each of this book’s 31 sessions comprises of a Scripture reference, a comment and a prayer, followed by questions for reflection and personal application. Each week then ends with a group study page.
