Let Hope In by Pete Wilson book review

Tuesday, November 5, 2013

"Hope changes everything. It can disarm guilt, shatter shame, and put your past in its place. All you have to do is make the choice to let it in. It won’t be easy. It won’t be quick. But it is possible and we serve a God who promises over and over again that anything is possible.”

The world we live in today needs hope. Hope for today and hope for a better tomorrow. Hope that even in the midst of the storm we can count on a rainbow to shine through very soon. Pete Wilson does a fabulous job of helping his readers understand and realize this amazing hope in his new book Let Hope In. Wilson lays out 4 choices throughout the book that each of us can make every day to help continue to let hope in. He doesn’t sugarcoat the hard times, nor does he minimize the pain we may go through, but he does present a unique and biblical view of how we can choose to hope even in the toughest of situations.

My copy of is now dog eared throughout. I had many “aha” moments where Wilson somehow was able to articulate and expound on some amazing biblical truths. He is able to look at a passage of Scripture and really analyze the text in a new but contextually accurate way. The nuggets of wisdom I gleaned from this book are many. Wilson is an awesome teacher and knows how to illustrate what a life of hope actually looks like.

I give this book four out of five stars because I had a hard time with Wilson’s various uses of personal examples in the book. While I do find examples extremely helpful to illustrate a point it actually became somewhat tedious and hard for me to follow his main point at times. 

Overall though I highly recommend this book to anyone who may need some encouragement and hope in their life. Whether you’re struggling with the past, not sure of the future or just need a new perspective of things, I would definitely grab a copy of Pete Wilson’s book Let Hope In.
