Scripture scholar and author, Daniel J. Harrington, S.J., explores fifteen images of hope in each of the following: "Matthew's Gospel", "Paul's Letter to the Romans", and the "Book of Revelation". Chosen because they are among the longest, most influential, and most difficult texts of the New Testament, these three very different books begin with the hope that the newborn Jesus will be "Emmanuel, God with us" and end with the plea, "Come, Lord Jesus." Harrington, editor of Liturgical Press' best-selling "Sacra Pagina" series, writes this book not so much for biblical specialists as for the general public. The author's popular and prayerful approach considers forty-five images of hope - from star, water, and rock through childbirth, body, and house to scroll, woman, and beast. In an age when hope seems to be in short supply, here is a book that will give fresh insight and energy to all who "wait in joyful hope for the coming of our Savior, Jesus Christ." "With his characteristic depth of solid scholarship, Father Harrington explores dozens of images from the Gospels, "Paul's Letter to the Romans", and "John's Book of Revelation" to discover reason for the hope which is in us as Christians. I found myself intrigued and inspired by his insights. At a time of much confusion and unrest, Father Harrington provides a rich resource for courageous hope and confident renewal in Christ. I recommend this fine volume to pastoral leaders and to all who hunger for spiritual nourishment and hope." - Bishop Richard Sklba, Archdiocese of Milwaukee, Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
