Words of Hope for Uncertain Times
We live in a time of war. From Baghdad, New York, and London, to Buenos Aires, Tokyo, and Kabul, the fabric of human society is being torn apart by hatred and greed, and almost everyone is nervous about something – if not droughts or floods, then the stock market, or another terrorist attack.
That’s why we put together this ebook: as an antidote to fear, and to the isolation and mistrust it breeds. The passages in this e-book were selected by readers. (If they told us why they chose a particular quote, we included their comments.) Some passages pertain to the events of September 11, 2001; others to escalating tensions in the Persian Gulf and elsewhere. Still others address the broader themes of suffering, injustice, retribution, forgiveness, peace, and the eternal battle between evil and good.
Directly or indirectly, all of them sound a common note: our faith that though there will be war and rumors of war, God ultimately directs the course of history and holds us in his hands. And he is not a God of fear, but of hope.
Plough seeks to inform, encourage, and challenge a wide range of thinkers and seekers on a variety of topics. Plough is the publishing house of a community movement of families and single people whose common basis is faith in Jesus. All the same, we acknowledge God’s working in all people, no matter their background or creed, who strive for justice, peace, love, and joy.
These books have changed our lives and we would like to share them with you!
