Prisoners of Hope

Sundry Sunday Essays
  • By Steven J. Keillor
This collection of travel essays, arguments, poems and devotional reflections is a call to a return to the fortress - Jesus Christ. He is the only true source of hope, as many who have been captivated by His love can testify. Yet our culture is increasingly captivated (in an ominous sense) by false hopes marketed at increasing profit by the "athletes, actors, self-proclaimed kings," who are increasingly our chosen heroes. In these essays, the person of the Christ is presented as the Hero - freely given, divinely chosen, faithful and true. To be His "prisoner" is to be free indeed.
