A review: Hope for Hard Times

Got troubles of epic proportion?  Got hard times that are downright biblical?  Need help?

In Hope for Hard Times, author, television host, and professor of theology, Dr. Scott Hahn provides a renewing Scriptural prescription for hope in the midst of woes.  This short new book from Our Sunday Visitor, part of the "30-Minute Read" series, traverses the well-worn path through trials and sufferings as trod by the saints before us.  

Hope for Hard Times by Scott Hahn outlines the deep spiritual truth that our happiness and our hope are anchored in a love more timeless thank our current situation... our hope is found and fixed in God's fatherly love.

Indeed, Hahn writes:
"God has spent thousands of years showing the world time and again how he brings the greatest good from the greatest evil.  The Crucifixion was the most horrific sin mankind ever committed against God. Yet it brought the greatest good: our salvation."
Using realistic examples from Scripture, the saints, and the sacraments, Hahn shows us how to re-set our spiritual compass to our true north: the redemptive and empowering act of hope that transforms our ills.

And yes, you really can swallow this book whole in 30 minutes, but you'll only feel its effects once you apply it. As with any supplement, take only as directed.
