One of the great theological virtues, hope is a sign of our trust in God, the foundation for making our way through difficulties, and an invitation to witness to God's care in our lives. A psalm, a Pauline passage, and a gospel passage allow us to explore this virtue of which our world is in such need.

Each of us is called to be a disciple, a follower of Christ. The life of a disciple is challenging but it is the most fulfilling way to live. Called by name by the God who created us, we are shaped by the teachings of Jesus Christ and continually guided by the Spirit. As we grow more deeply into this identity as disciples of Jesus Christ, we discover the valuable virtues that mark God’s people.  
Alive in the Word invites you to explore Scripture in a way that is engaging and transformative. Each volume offers brief but powerful lessons that help you reflect on your own life and experience in relationship with the words, events and characters of the Bible. Prayer and action are full integrated. Browse through the titles under development in each of seven thematic topics.
