Terry Law is the founder and president of World Compassion. For more than thirty-seven years, he has traveled to countries that are normally closed to the Gospel to share the message of Jesus Christ and to support local churches and Christian relief programs. He was one of the first to go into the Soviet Union and other communist nations such as China, Hungary, Yugoslavia, Romania, and Poland. Most recently, he has focused his ministry on Muslim nations, including Afghanistan and Iraq. World Compassion has delivered medicine and food to hospitals and families in Iraq since 2003.
Whatever happened to hope? If you feel trapped by your circumstances and cant see a way out, Terry Law wants to show you a new paradigm--the paradigm of hope, which he defines as the confident expectation of the goodness of God. This is not cheap optimism, a pep talk sprinkled with Bible references. This is real hope, the kind that knows "God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose."
This book is all about hope as a mindset, a habitual choice, the course of first resort when despair tries an ambush. In other words, whether you are hopeful or hopeless is up to you. Perhaps you think its too late for you to make such a shift in your thinking, that "you cant teach an old dog new tricks." But youre wrong! No matter how many years may have slipped through your fingers, thanks to Gods grace and mercy, every minute of your future is still on your side.
