The most popular source of theological hope for American Christians is that of Jurgen Moltmann. Preachers, teachers, and lay people reflect Moltmann's influence, with their hope in a this-worldly eschatology and a 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. This book explores Moltmannian hope and considers its costs before looking elsewhere for additional contributions, from Thomas Aquinas's theological virtue of hope to nihilism and beyond, in order to encourage the church to sustain and practice hope in Jesus Christ, our only hope.

Hope is essential to human life. Without hope, humanity plunges into despair, and life can lose all purpose and meaning. Hope energizes people and communities, and also produces forbearance and patience. In this clear and accessible survey, which incorporates Asian perspectives, Roland Chia shows how Christian hope presses beyond the limits of both secular and religious world-views and confronts the reality of pain, suffering and death in the light of the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ. It is hope for God, and in God.

"For all the interest in emotions in antiquity, there has been little study of positive emotions. This collection aims to redress the balance with eleven studies of emotions like hope, joy, good will and mercy that show some of the complexity these emotions play in ancient literature and thought"--Provided by publisher.

The names of Noah's three sons are Shem, Ham, and Japheth. The meaning! The meaning of Ham is dark "dark" or "black"; Shem means, "name," "dusky," or "olive-colored"; and Japheth means "bright" or "fair." One of the most intimidating questions that plagued the mind of many today is how could one son be of Black decent and not the others? According to medical research, it tells us it is possible to have children that are very different, particularly if one or both of the parents is dark-complexioned, but according to medical research it is impossible for a bright or fair-complexioned person to produce a dark-skinned child. (NOTE: NOTHING IS TOO HARD FOR GOD) According to historians and their findings, Ham is the ancestral father of the Blacks, Mongoloids, and the Indians. Shem is the ancestral father of the Jews and Arab nations; and from the loins of Japheth came the Caucasians, "nationalized" the Indo-European- Countries.
