Since the spectacular rise of South Africa’s Nelson Mandela and the remarkable election of Barack Obama as president of the United States, the phrase “hopeful politics” has dominated our public discourse. But what happens when that hope disappoints? Can it be salvaged? What is the relationship between faith, hope, and politics?
In this volume Allan Boesak meditates on what it really means to hope in light of present political realities and growing human pain. He argues that hope comes to life only in situations of vulnerability—in struggles for justice, dignity, and the life of the Earth. Dare We Speak of Hope? is a critical, provocative, prophetic—and, above all, hopeful—volume.
