Hope is a widespread, if not a universal, human experience. For centuries, followers of Jesus of Nazareth have ordered their lives around a central hope. How is their experience similar to or different from others who live by hope? This book seeks an answer in the idea that living by hope involves living within a peculiar story of the world--an incomplete story. The stories that shape these hopes are threatened by evil, however it may be defined--he hopeful struggle as characters caught up in plots that move toward resolution. They exercise an as-yet unverified hope that evil will not prevail. In this regard, the hope of Christians is similar to others. Yet, it is different because they wait for the God of Jesus to transform the world to match the promise he made to Abraham. To arrive at this conclusion, this book takes a detour through four model life-organizing stories. Christians and participants in other stories-of-the-world may not agree on the ultimate ground for hope. However, taking a detour into the hopeful experience of another may help uncover a place where rivals can stand together long enough to talk.
