A World Vision CEO shares personal stories and anecdotes to inspire and give hope. Some stories need to be shared beyond a moment and a place, as they can be wonderful illustrations of the human experience. In a world that is full of challenging and soul-searching events, Tim Costello shares stories he has encountered in often the most dramatic of circumstances. He believes life has a way of giving us the power to persevere during hard times, and in Hope he shows us how. Hope is a book to savor and brings home the importance of love, life, and finding the best that there is to be found in people. A book that reminds us all that there are so many that suffer yet still we can find hope. Costello proves that hope can be found in the smallest of moments.
