Remix Book Review of Hope Quotient by Ray Johnston
Doesn’t it seem like each pastor has a different answer as to why the American Church is in decline? In the awesome new book Hope Quotient, Ray Johnston presents the answer to what may very well be the underlying cause of all the symptoms that we often hear about. The answer… We have lost HOPE. We have lost hope in ourselves, in what God is capable of, and in each other. According to Ray, hope is not wishful thinking or simply a bold prediction. HOPE is a key aspect of faith and necessary to pursuing any version of success in this life or the next.
With a subject like hope it is easy to think this book would simply be inspirational fluff, but in reality this book is sincere and practical. Ray has even included a link to do a Hope Quotient assessment online to check where your Hope level currently is, and gives practical steps to raising it up. The stories within the book serve as the perfect amount of instruction and inspiration to make anyone realize the importance of hope. Maybe you think this sounds like some “hope gospel” but in reality this book helps the reader realize that the Gospel IS Hope! This book made me realize my personal need for Hope everyday, and if you want a renewal, a life change, a refocusing opportunity why not start with hope? This beautifully crafted book will not sit on your bookshelf, it will get you moving and I promise you will want to pass it’s wonderful message along!
