Let Hope In was written by Pete Wilson, who is the founding and senior pastor of Cross Point Church which is one of the fastest growing churches in America. This is his third book and my personal favorite. Though I did enjoy both his first book, Plan B, and his second, Empty Promises. It's funny that I got the opportunity to read Let Hope In at this point in my life, a time when this is exactly the kind of message I needed. I think that that will be the case for many, if not most, of the people who read this book. Because like I said in the introduction, we all go through times where something awful happens and we don't know what to do about it.

It's right in the title. Let Hope In. As Pete says, "Your past is not your past if it's still impacting your present." In this book, Pete shares some of the stories of people he's counseled over the years and to help us see how our past impacts us. He uses several Biblical stories to help us understand how God wants to heal us from our past and present hurts.

Pete gives us four choices that can change our lives if we let them.
Choice #1: Choosing to Transform Instead of Transfer
Choice #2: Choosing to Be Okay With Not Being Okay
Choice #3: Choosing to Trust Rather Than Please
Choice#4: Hurt People, Hurt People, But Free People Choose to Free People

I'm really not one to write in books, but I have a feeling that might change with this one. There's just so many good lines and passages in here. Some that I'd like to put up on a wall in a place where I'm sure to see it. Starting with just two words: "But God". Those two words and what he says about them have had a major impact on my prayer life. Then I got hit by this gem which I loved: "God is bigger than your history and more concerned with your destiny".

When trouble or tragedy strikes our life, it can be easy to lose hope. Many people, Christian and non-Christian alike fit that description. And, whether it's because of repeated loss and failure, circumstances that seem overwhelming, or not knowing where to turn for help, it can sometimes feel like hope is gone. Author Pete Wilson knows this, and his book Let Hope In is an encouragement that things can get better, you can have hope again and you can know how loved you are, but you have to make the choice to let hope in.
Pete Wilson is the founding Pastor of Cross Point Church in Nashville, Tennessee, where he has served as the Senior Pastor for several years. Using the scripture and stories from his own life and others with whom he has interacted over the years, he shows both how we can feel like hope is gone and hoe we can let it back into our lives again. The four choices that will change your life, from the subtitle, are choosing to transform instead of transfer, choosing to be ok with not being ok, choosing to trust rather than please and choosing to free people rather than hurt them.
The subject of hope is very important, and one that we all wrestle with at times, even if not chronically. So, I commend the author for addressing an important topic. However, I did not find the book to have engaged me as much as I would have desired. I found it to be strong on illustrations but not as strong on scripture. While stories make the material more personal, it is only God's Word that can offer us true hope. Jesus is our hope. This book does tell us that, but only in ways that are underemphasized to me. Still, it is an important topic and if you need hope, you may find a few keys inside,

If you find yourself in a season where you feel like you've lost hope, this is just the book to help you find it again. There are so many struggles in life that can make it easy to fall into a sense of hopelessness. With this book, Pastor Pete Wilson shares four choices that we each have that help us find hope again and he then expands on each of those choices with real-life stories (both his own and others) and Scripture that show that concept in action. Wilson writes with a transparency and authenticity that make you feel like a friend is talking to you; his writing is real and honest. Wilson reminds the reader throughout that "Our hope is based on a God who can do and will do the impossible." We just have to trust in Him; He will make all things new no matter what our past looks like or what we think our future might look like.

Full disclosure: I was blessed to be a part of the launch team for this book and received a free advance copy in return for an honest review.

This is a great book! I'm a little biased because I attend Crosspoint where Pete ministers. But I will say that this book helped me through a really rough time. There's a lot of wisdom in it. It's so good that I've actually bought it for several people. Highly recommended.

Let Hope In by Pete Wilson is filled with wise words for living out the life of faith. It's not really a guidebook to hope, so much as the author's thoughts on Christian basics. And they're good thoughts.

For example, early in the book, he says this about shame: "Shame becomes an identity that drives us forward into self-abusive actions…. shame is not produced by past events. Shame is produced by what we believe about those events." This sets up the theme of these chapters: how what we do with the events of our past has a huge impact on our experiences in life. How do we think about difficulties and disappointments? How do we forgive when necessary? How do we let God transform us and our perception of these events and the larger story we're living?
"Throughout life," he says, "we will face one situation after another that will be completely beyond what we can handle." He goes on to quote Brennan Manning: "Anyone God uses significantly is almost always deeply wounded." Through all of this, the central issue, he argues, is not what we are doing - to fix ourselves, to heal, to prove our capacity in the world - but what God is doing. That's the interesting part of the story.

Perhaps the strongest chapter of the book is toward the end, where the author shares his love of gardening. He talks about how much effort he puts into his garden, and how this makes him think of a chapter in the Gospel of John, where Jesus describes his father as the gardener. The author doesn't say this directly, but what came to mind for me is that the life of faith is a lot like gardening: we know some of the things to do, and we learn more and more throughout our lives if we're willing.
