Let Hope In presents us, the readers, with choices that are geared to improve our outlook and our lives. The author presents these options to mull over as we consider allowing our lives to recover from so many hurts thrown at us by the world.
The best way to describe the thrust of this book is to say it deals with healing. We tend to hang onto our pasts with all the mistakes we made, in spite of the fact we want our pasts to be just that- our pasts. Pete Wilson says in this book that when our past keeps going to the forefront of our minds, it happens because we allow it to.
In one chapter, Trusting vs. Pleasing the author concludes with: “I want to live a life where I have to lean on God’s grace rather than trying the journey alone to reach him.”
I would recommend this book to anyone who struggles with letting go of past hurts. This book would be a great study for small groups. I also see it being utilized in a counseling ministry by Christian counselors.
I received a free copy of this book from Thomas Nelson through its Booksneeze program. All they ask of me was that I read it and give an unbiased review.
