Publisher's Description

"The Poor Houses history stands as one of the finer traditions of Western civilization. One moves back, and back, from the American South, to New England, to Old England, the European Continent, the abbeys, the Christians of the late Roman Empire. The end of the journey is Jesus Christ Himself. "- Clearly the Savior of mankind taught that the strong must help the weak. The Poor House principle of doing good to those who were unable to give anything in return, was a reflection of this teaching of Christ. This principle was carried out only through the caregivers' self-sacrifice, which was sometimes extreme. One may even say that it was a faint portrayal and reminder of Christ's sacrificial dying to provide eternal salvation for the many." Henry Hope is an author living in retirement in metro Atlanta, as a sixth-generation resident of this city. He was privileged to visit thirty-one countries, lecturing, teaching, or preaching in six of them. Missions, his primary ministry interest, led him to join Mission India, after spending years in Presbyterian pastorates. He and his wife Betty have two children and six grandchildren, all likewise based in the metro area. In addition to The Poor Houses, Henry has written an adventure-and-romance novel, which will be available shortly.
