Bright Hope for Tomorrow: How Jesus’ Parables Illuminate Our Darkest Days

Bright Hope for Tomorrow by Dr. Jim Denison

Where do you find hope in hard times?

When sickness strikes . . .

When the economy falters . . .

When political vitriol rages . . . 

Where do you turn?

When the daily stress of life is compounded by loss, depression, or doubt, to whom do you look?

Two millennia ago, Jesus told dozens of short stories that still provide the hope we need today.

From the parable of the prodigal son to the parable of the persistent widow, Jesus’ timeless words of wisdom provide us “strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,” as the hymnist Thomas Chisholm wrote in “Great Is Thy Faithfulness.”

In Bright Hope for Tomorrow: How Jesus’ Parables Illuminate Our Darkest Days, Dr. Jim Denison explores ten of Jesus’ parables, encouraging you to live with purpose, cultural impact, and hope.
