A quick glance at the headlines reveals a world plagued by violence, hatred, unrest, disease and death--a world without hope. A look into our hearts yields similar results: loneliness, anger, sorrow, and depression are companions many of us would rather not carry. What happened to the "abundant life" Jesus promised us?
William Frey suggests that root of the problem is a loss of memory. In our haste to study and know the Bible, we have failed to experience the story of the Bible, and thus we have forgotten who we are.
The Dance of Hope helps readers regain the Bible story as it reveals the fullness of our identity as God?s creation, recovers a biblically founded hope for the future, and equips the Christian community to be bearers of authentic hope to the world. When believers view the Bible story through what William Frey calls a "creation lens," they discover a promised future of glory that can fill them with hope for today.
Also included is a study guide that leads readers through times of prayer, reflection, personal assessment, and Scripture study, teaching them to view the world through hopeful eyes.
