Book Reviews

Dr. Albert Reyes tackles the importance of hope while explaining the redemptive work required for those working in God's Kingdom. "Hope Now" is not about ministry or religion, but about God's Kingdom and the hope that provides peace and justice in this world. His compassion bleeds through the pages of this book as he tells his story that led him to become a leader of hope in this desperate and broken world.
