The most popular source of theological hope for modern Christians is that of Jurgen Moltmann. Preachers, teachers, and lay people reflect Moltmann's influence, with their hope in a this-worldly eschatology and suffering God. However, an exclusive reliance on that hope deprives the church of crucial resources in the face of global economic, environmental, and military crises. Our Only Hope explores Moltmannian hope and considers its costs before looking elsewhere for additional contributions, from Thomas Aquinas' theological virtue of hope to nihilism and beyond, in order to encourage the church to sustain and practise hope in Jesus Christ, our only hope.

For those trying to weather through the storms of life, Grace Rockwell offers encouragement by sharing her own experiences and what she has learned from them. Growing up with chronic pain and in a negative environment, where she was often rejected and alone, Grace learned to put her trust in the Lord. No matter what storms she faced, or how much pain she endured, Grace always came back to the Lord for help. Grace’s experiences will encourage you as you face your own storms in life. She reassures the reader that we can trust that God is always with us; He has a plan and a purpose for our lives. Our Only Hope will take you along Grace’s journey to find that the redemptive power of God is our only hope, and it can become an anchor for our souls. Grace’s passions include not only spreading the good news of Jesus Christ, but also advocating for those suffering from chronic pain, domestic abuse, and/or mental illness. Today Grace lives with her husband in a small farming community in West Michigan, not far from where she grew up. She and her husband have four grown children and nine grandchildren.

Are you ever just tired of life? Tired of disappointments, hardships, and struggles? The everyday boredom, or if it's not boredom, it's little irritations at home, on the job, your relationships, people in general, or on the road driving with people who are inconsiderate; that is my polite term. Whatever it may be, there is always hope! Think deep and give some thought to why you are living? What is your purpose on this earth? We all go through the ups and downs of life, the good times, the hard times. We go through happy times and sad times. We go through easy, happy-go-lucky days and then those days that seem so impossible that we don't think we can go on. We need hope to get through these times. Without hope, we have a tendency to just give up and quit fighting. The people in our lives can either be helpful or they can be a hindrance; they can be truthful and tell us what we need to hear or they can cover up and tell us what we want to hear. We need the truth and sometimes the truth hurts, but it just may get us back on track where we need to be and open up our eyes to get the right perspective back. This book is going to help you. It is very personal to me. It is written straight from my heart to yours. Over the past several years, Jesus has been working in my heart and changing me. I asked him too. It is the best feeling in the world. Take these words on these pages to heart. Let Jesus work in you. You will not regret it. We have too many regrets already in our lives. Let's turn that around for the better. Take a good look at your life, get honest with yourself, and get a fresh, new perspective on life and your purpose. You can experience hope through Jesus Christ.
