- Impressive Hope! by Nancee on 7/25/13
Ragged Hope is a collection of poignant personal stories of survivors who, by the grace of God, have endured and overcome the fallout from other people's destructive choices. The examples in Ragged Hope are lessons in reality. Dishonorable, selfish, inappropriate choices made by others have placed the victims in these stories into chaotic situations. Hope has set them free. Examples of abuse, neglect, abandonment, job loss, infidelity and financial disasters are only a fraction of the representations illustrating how God's steadfast love, mercy and grace helped these victims overcome painful and debilitating circumstances. These stories demonstrate that no matter what life throws our way God's unconditional love can restore peace to our lives. Each life story is followed by reflections for the reader to contemplate and examine, to assist in gleaning hope in spite of despair. An inspirational Bible verse appropriate to the situation regarding those who have survived life's most difficult challenges is a balm for the spirit. For those suffering the fallout of someone else's poor choices, Rugged Hope is exemplary in promoting healing from some of the most painful wounds inflicted on us, through the power and love of God.
Cynthia Ruchti has presented several powerful examples of God's transformation of His children from ashes to beauty. These accounts of victims in despair, whose pain was inflicted on them by those closest to them, are written with sensitivity and compassion. The practical applications provided through these personal accounts are excellent points of reference for those involved in situations similar to the victims described in Ragged Hope. Ms. Ruchti writes with insight, discrimination, credibility and a sophistication that only experience yields. Incredible hope is the ground level approach throughout this book. This author provides impressive insight into the human condition, and the solutions delivered through Hope!
