Hope changes everything.
It can disarm guilt, shatter shame, and put your past in its place. All you have to do is make the choice to let it in. It wont be easy. It wont be quick. But it is possible and we serve a God who promises over and over again that anything is possible.
Pete Wilson, pastor and the author of Plan B, presents a new look at the power of healing through hope, revealing 4 unique choices that have the potential to change your life forever.
With Wilsons telltale cadence and candor, Let Hope In explores accounts of seemingly hopeless moments in the Bible illustrating Gods ultimate plan for healing by letting hope fill the dark places of your past.
Discover how pain that is not transformed becomes transferred. Embrace the freedom of being okay with not being okay. Learn that a life of trusting is far more magnificent than a life of pleasing. Because hurt people hurt people, but free people have the power to free people.
So make today the day that you get unstuck. The day you fill your past with the light of hope, the day you say good-bye to regret and shame. The day you choose to change your future and embrace who God created you to be, simply by making the choice to let hope in.
Pete Wilson is the founding and senior pastor of Cross Point Church in Nashville, Tennessee. Pete desires to see churches become radically devoted to Christ, irrevocably committed to one another, and relentlessly dedicated to reaching those outside of Gods family. Pete and his wife, Brandi, have three boys.

An insightful and hope inducing book. Pete structures his sentences and chapters in a way that's understandable to even the least seasoned reader.
Pete makes hope REAL. He makes hope ATTAINABLE. The book has short, concise chapters, and is very readable. Once I started reading it, I didn't want to put it down.
I'm one who is always grasping for books and workshops about hope, faith, and love. For the most part, I've been disappointed, as the curriculum has fallen short of my expectations and turned in to nothing more than a wordy (and unattainable) pipe dream.
For anyone who feels that they are in a hopeless situation, I suggest that you read this book.

If it hasn't happened to you yet, it will. That's the way life works sometimes. We have to live through a pain that we never expected or a challenge that restructures our entire life plan and sometimes that brings us to a place we can't handle, can't face, or simply just don't want to.
I read Let Hope In over a weekend and highlighted so many passages, I should have just highlighted the whole book. Though I'm not currently in a place of need, this book spoke to me through my past experiences and I know it will help so many readers through dark places.
Wilson focuses on four specific choices that can change your outlook on your situation and allow you to truly let hope in.
1. Choosing to Transform Instead of Transfer
2. Choosing to Be Okay with Not Being Okay
3. Choosing to Trust Rather than Please
4. Choosing to Free People Rather Than to Hurt Them
The book is Scripture-based and uses Biblical references in an excellent way. The point is made, but it's not overkill. The text is very readable and made for a quick read -- minus all the time I spent highlighting.
This is one I'll keep on my shelf to reference when I have a friend in need (or myself!). The writing is excellent and the subject matter always necessary to have on hand.
mojoTexasAge: 35-44Gender: male4 Stars Out Of 5A great book on how to find hopeNovember 15, 2013mojoTexasAge: 35-44Gender: maleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Pete Wilson is the founding and senior pastor of Cross Point Church in Nashville, Tennessee, Pete gained national attention in 2010 when Thomas Nelson published his best-selling book, Plan B (which I also recommend). His latest book; Let Hope in: 4 Choices That Will Change Your Life Forever is well on its way to being just as successful.
When things seem at their bleakest, you might hear someone say, "Don't give up hope." In the face of despair, sickness and even isolation - hope can be the thing that pulls you through. In this book, author Pete Wilson tells his own story of hope and how you can "let hope in" when things seem their darkest.
Wilson offers that hope can be held on to, if we would just make the right choices when they present themselves. Choices like choosing to be okay with not being okay, choosing to trust rather than please and choosing to free people rather than hurt them.
Wilson writes a very practical, very approachable book with lots of great stories with some really good biblical truths. This book is very easy to read and would make a great gift for someone who might need that extra bit of encouragement.
Thank you to Thomas Nelson for this review copy in exchange for a fair and honest review.

4 Choices That Will Change Your Life Forever
By Pete Wilson
Choosing to transform instead of transfer, Choosing to be okay with not being okay, Choosing to trust rather than please and Choosing to free people rather than hurt people. These are areas in life that we need to change to have hope and a better relationship with God. Pete Wilson covers these areas and gives examples of them and how to change.
Many times, we think we have dealt with issues from our past only to later realize that we only cover them up and have not dealt with them at all. The book is easy to read and will cause you to think about your life, if you are holding onto any guilt or hurt that is effecting your life and walk with Christ. The book will help you to deal with problems from your past and start a new way of living with Christ.
