Once, Jesus was teaching and he told people "my burden is light." In other words, he didn't come to weigh us down and make life harder. It seems like there are always people ready to make Christianity complicated and difficult, and that's why I love this book: it captures the simplicity that Jesus originally offered. You need to read this book!
Greg Surratt, Founding pastor of Seacoast Church, Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina
I predict this is going to be a very significant resource for the global church.
Bob Roberts Jr, Founder and Pastor, Northwood Church, Keller, Texas.
Where is that straightforward, plain English, theologically sound, assume-nothing little book that you can give to an unbelieving friend, read with the seeker, share with the new believer, work through with the backslider? A book that carefully and pastorally delivers the gospel, framed from the outset as a real encounter with the living, saving, discipling Jesus. A book that clearly and practically explains the breadth of repenting, Christ-following faith from conversion through the steady heavenward walk of willing obedience. Hope Reborn is just such a book. Not only is it exciting that the church has this superb new resource - Tope and Adrian have warmed my heart anew with the wonders of the gospel.
Colin Buchanan, Christian Children's Recording artist and author, Sydney, Australia
Don't make the mistake of thinking this book is for the new Christian only. You will find your love for the gospel growing afresh as you read its pages.
Jack Hayford, Founding Pastor, The Church On The Way, Los Angeles, California
People are often saved through a fragment of truth. What comes next is vital. Here is instruction not only to establish Christians in their new identity but also to provide a path to effective Christian living.
Terry Virgo, Founder of Newfrontiers and well-known Bible Teacher, London
There has long been a need for a short, simple, accessible and biblically faithful book explaining the essence of what it means to be a Christian, how to become a Christian, and how to start living as Christian. Hope Reborn meets this need wonderfully.
John Stevens, National Director, Fellowship of Independent Evangelical Churches, Market Harborough, Leicestershire
This book will be of great help to anyone who wants to become a Christian. If you have been part of a church for many years Hope Reborn will also help you to bring the gospel back to the center, and to become more confident in explaining it to others.
Rice Broocks, Author, 'God's Not Dead - Evidence for God in an Age of Uncertainty'
If you are a Christian, this book will help you know and share your faith. And, if you're not, it's a great guide to understand what it means to be a follower of Jesus. I commend them and Hope Reborn to you.
Ed Stetzer, Billy Graham Chair, Wheaton College, Wheaton, Illinois
At last! An engagingly written, theologically vibrant little book that you can give to seekers, to new converts, and to struggling believers. The authors depict a righteous Savior who can be touched and who really cares, and they lay out practical steps every child of God can take to grow strong in the faith.
Michael L. Brown, Author, theologian, apologist, and radio host lineoffireradio.com
Hope. The realest, deepest, truest Hope. If you need some Hope - and, honestly, who doesn't? - I humbly, earnestly recommend these pages to you as real water.
Ann Voskamp , Author of the New York Times Bestsellers, One Thousand Gifts & The Greatest Gift
An amazing book which will help you follow our amazing saviour.
R. T. Kendall, Previous minister of Westminster Chapel, London
This book will help new comers to the faith discover where hope is born and it will help seasoned believers to remember how not to lose it.
Frank Viola, Author of God?s Favorite Place on Earth and Jesus Now, Florida
This is an excellent book: simple yet profound, brief yet thorough. Written in a style that is readable and easy to relate to, it covers the critical issues needed for a person to get off to a strong start in their Christian life. I trust and pray that it will be a great resource to many churches and a great blessing to many individuals. May many lives be transformed as a result!
