This new version of Pastor Olu Brown Advent study looks beyond
the pandemic of 2020-21 to a future filled with hope of God’s promises. With the recent pandemic and unrest on American streets as a
backdrop, Brown reminds the reader that God is still in control and
there is still hope for the world. Designed for both individual and
group study, Hope: An Advent Journey is the perfect companion for
Advent 2021 and beyond.
In Hope: An Advent Journey, author Olu Brown encourages readers
to reclaim Advent as something already here, not a season waiting
to arrive. Matthew’s gospel speaks of Jesus as Emmanuel, which
means “God with us.” This name does not speak of the future, but of
In spite of any difficulties we face, we have Emmanuel. Our hope is
not based on external situations, but eternal promises. This Advent
season can be the best ever if you dare to embrace the hope of Jesus
right now, knowing that God’s grace and love are present to carry you
through the most challenging times in your life.
