In this dynamic new audiobook, New York pastor and best-selling author Tim Keller explores the biblical understanding of hope. A profound grasp of what we are hopeful for, he argues, can reenergise and transform us personally; can help us face death; can influence our community practices with regard to sex, money and power; and can even be applied globally to renew our culture.

With every earthquake and war, understanding the nature of evil and our response to it becomes more urgent. Evil is no longer the concern just of ministers and theologians but also of politicians and the media. We hear of child abuse, ethnic cleansing, AIDS, torture and terrorism, and rightfully we are shocked. N. T. Wright says that we should not be surprised. For too long we have naively believed in the modern idea of human progress.

A concise, scholarly but accessible book on an important peeps of church and social history. Only slightly spoilt by the occasionally dodgy American pronunciation of words like schism!
