Editorial Reviews

"We recommend Never Beyond Hope to you. Use it for your own personal devotions. And use it in a small group, so that the grace of which it speaks can ripple out into the community of God's people."
"In classic Packer style, this book opens the pages of Scripture and sheds new, refreshing light on well-known stories and some not-so-well-known characters. . . . Insightful, witty, and very wise Bible teaching."
"[T]his book takes the aphorism 'While there's life, there's hope' and reverses it to 'Only while there's hope is there life.' . . . [E]ntertaining and effective . . . always readable."
