About the Author

Carl Kerby, founder of Reasons for Hope, equips people worldwide to defend Scripture and share the only true hope, Jesus. A founding board member of Answers in Genesis and a popular, dynamic speaker, he resides in Hebron, KY.

More About the Author

Carl's passion is to proclaim the authority and accuracy of the Bible and to engage the minds and hearts of believers and unbelievers in today's culture so that they may experience the realities of the Word of God.

This happens whenever Carl speaks. Whether he speaks to youth or adults, large or small crowds, churches or schools, Carl has a way of connecting with almost everybody; and that is one of the reasons he is a much sought-after speaker both in the United States and abroad. He has spoken in Bermuda, Canada, England, Greece, Israel, Jamaica, Japan, Mexico the Philippines and Wales just to name a few.

Carl was in ministry in a variety of capacities for over 20 years before stepping out in faith to become President and Founder of Reasons for Hope, www.rforh.com.

Though Carl has played many roles in his life, (son of a professional wrestler, air-traffic controller at O'Hare International Airport, Founding Board member and widely known speaker for Answers in Genesis), his most cherished accomplishment is his marriage to his wife, Masami, for over 28 years, and his role as a father to his daughter, Alisa, and his son, Carl, Jr., and grandfather to his grandchildren, Trey, Naomi Joy and Mari Hayashida.

Format: Paperback
Loved this book! Encouraged me to be bold and share God's truth with others by sharing about my tainted past. Stuggled in the past with being transparent about things in my past and not sharing (worrying what others might think), in the past 2 weeks I have shared with 5 people and have been blessed in doing so. Reading his thoughts on evolution and looking at the web site for Answers in Genesis I now am "Sold Out" for Creation. God would not want to confuse us, so why not take the Bible for what it says: after all it was God breathed. There are so many great things in this book that I could not tell all of them, so get it and read it!

In the mid of all our life issues, it is difficult to continue to hold onto the hope of something better and it is even more difficult to share our christian testimony with others. Carl Kerby shares his life story with us in his hope that we can learn from his testimony and share our christian experience with others. Can you look bake in life and see the people or the person who made a difference to you, provided some encouragement to you or mentored you on your christian journey. We all have a story to share like Carl and by writing this book he wants to encourage us all to share our stories. There may be someone out there who is struggling to hold on and our story could be the limb that reached out there to make a difference in that persons life.
I understand the author was sharing his beliefs on creation and evolution, but I didn't think it fit well within the concepts of this book. It is one topic that we cannot mention lightly. Maybe it was just my mindset at the time but this section just seemed to jump out at me as being different from the rest of the book.
If you enjoy reading testimonies from other Christians or are wanting to expand your own thoughts and beliefs, then this would be the book for you.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from B & B Media for review. I was not obligated to provide a positive review. The opinions in this review are my own.

Format: Paperback
Inside the pages of "REASONS for HOPE: In the MOSAIC of Your Life" the reader is met with the embodiment of 1 Peter 3:15 "But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be ready to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect," (NIV)

Carl Kerby has allowed the reader to join him in looking at the broken pieces of his past life, and how God has worked a beautiful mosaic out of the rubble. The inscription just past the title page reads "To those who don't have hope and need to be given it & to those who do have hope and need to share it." What a fitting introduction to a book written to give hope to all of us through what God can accomplish in our messed up lives. The book is divided into three parts which each have subtitles of their own, but which I think of as 1. Why 2. The Past and 3. Now, How?

"Offering REASONS FOR HOPE in a Hopeless World" is the actual subtitle of part one. For those who have heard Carl speak, some of this will be review. In this section Carl shares some of the Biblical examples of physical things the nation of Israel used as reminders pointing them back to what God had done for them. (Such as Joshua chapter 4.) We are also reminded that Jesus wanted His disciples to be world changers and that to do this effectively we need to be able to "give basic answers for your faith." Carl plainly states his reason for writing: "I want to both challenge you and encourage you. I'm a fellow pilgrim on this journey of faith." Besides these exhortations, Carl answers many other `Why' questions with to-the-point answers.

"But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect."
1 Peter 3:15

"In a mosaic, the artist arranges pieces of cut or broken stones or tiles to create a decorative pattern. We may struggle to grasp the overall design of a mosaic when we're looking at the individual peices up close, because what we see looks like a piece of junk, broken and useless. But when we step back far enough to view the entire mosaic, we get a new perspective, and we see the intricate beauty of the finished masterpiece. That enables us to grasp the original intent of the artist," explains Carl Kerby, author of Reasons For Hope In The Mosaic Of Your Life.

Carl is president and founder of Reasons for Hope, founded in 2011 as a response to a calling from God to proclaim the authority and authenticity of the Bible. He was previously a founding board member at Answers in Genesis for ten years and served there for over fifteen years. Before he worked as an air-traffic controller at O'Hare International Airport.

Kerby's love for Jesus fuels a passion to engage the minds and hearts of youth and adults so that they can know the truth of God's Word. He is a sought after speaker both in the United States and abroad. Yet his most cherished accomplishment is his 29 year marriage to his wife, Masami, and his roles as father to his children, Alisa and Carl Jr. and grandfather to Trey.
