How can we handle the anxiety of change? How can we work constructively with change? Caught in the rapid pace of shifting ideals and realities in our society, people increasingly face disillusionment, discouragement, pain, and fear.

Reflecting on the anxieties that deeply trouble us today, William Hockin offers spiritual guidance and reasons for hope. With keen insight into the human situation and a deep knowledge of the Bible and Christian faith, he helps us to value our own life experience and to approach the divine source of all our hope.

Hope is not just an attitude but a habit of life that we can choose to cultivate. When we do, we will find new joyfulness in faith and confidence in living.
