Why Do We Hope


In this follow up to his popular book, What Are We Hoping For? New Testament Images, Daniel Harrington extends his reflections on hope in the Scriptures. He draws us into the striking images of the psalms – the mountain, the sun, refuge, the kingdom, sheltering wings, the olive tree, and the shepherd – to lead us to the discovery that hope is the predominant image of the book of Psalms.

Even in their darkest laments, the psalmists remind us that God hears us and will never abandon us. In these brief essays, Harrington opens up the language of forty psalms, explores their literary ahd historical context, and then ties the psalm to our reading as Christians whose ultimate hope is in Jesus Christ.
