Pete Wilson is the founding and senior pastor of Cross Point Church in Nashville, Tennessee, Pete gained national attention in 2010 when Thomas Nelson published his best-selling book, Plan B (which I also recommend). His latest book; Let Hope in: 4 Choices That Will Change Your Life Forever is well on its way to being just as successful. When things seem at their bleakest, you might hear someone say, “Don’t give up hope.” In the face of despair, sickness and even isolation – hope can be the thing that pulls you through. In this book, author Pete Wilson tells his own story of hope and how you can “let hope in” when things seem their darkest. Wilson offers that hope can be held on to, if we would just make the right choices when they present themselves. Choices like choosing to be okay with not being okay, choosing to trust rather than please and choosing to free people rather than hurt them. Wilson writes a very practical, very approachable book with lots of great stories with some really good biblical truths. This book is very easy to read and would make a great gift for someone who might need that  extra bit of encouragement. Thank you to Thomas Nelson for this review copy in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Let Hope In is a book for everyone in every season of life. No matter who you are, there is something in your life that you are struggling with. This book say's its okay, to not be okay. It says It is alright to admit our struggles. We all can have hope if we let it in. There is a God that is bigger and more powerful than whatever life has thrown at you. This book tells that in order to feel his power, all we need to do is let hope in. I strongly recommend this book to anyone and everyone. It's powerful. It's simple. It's the message of Hope.

If you find yourself in a season where you feel like you've lost hope, this is just the book to help you find it again. There are so many struggles in life that can make it easy to fall into a sense of hopelessness. With this book, Pastor Pete Wilson shares four choices that we each have that help us find hope again and he then expands on each of those choices with real-life stories (both his own and others) and Scripture that show that concept in action. Wilson writes with a transparency and authenticity that make you feel like a friend is talking to you; his writing is real and honest. Wilson reminds the reader throughout that "Our hope is based on a God who can do and will do the impossible." We just have to trust in Him; He will make all things new no matter what our past looks like or what we think our future might look like. Full disclosure: I was blessed to be a part of the launch team for this book and received a free advance copy in return for an honest review.

Inspirational Pete Wilson (Senior Pastor of Cross Point Community Church in Nashville, TN and author of Plan B) has written a compelling and inspirational book that made me consider my past and gave me workable suggestions to begin to really be free of it.  Inside these pages are 4 choices that the reader can make to begin to live with a hope that transcends the confines of what the world tells us is right or popular.  I loved it and think you will too!

Let Hope In was written by Pete Wilson, who is the founding and senior pastor of Cross Point Church which is one of the fastest growing churches in America. This is his third book and my personal favorite. Though I did enjoy both his first book, Plan B, and his second, Empty Promises. It's funny that I got the opportunity to read Let Hope In at this point in my life, a time when this is exactly the kind of message I needed. I think that that will be the case for many, if not most, of the people who read this book. Because like I said in the introduction, we all go through times where something awful happens and we don't know what to do about it. It's right in the title. Let Hope In. As Pete says, Your past is not your past if it's still impacting your present. In this book, Pete shares some of the stories of people he's counseled over the years and to help us see how our past impacts us. He uses several Biblical stories to help us understand how God wants to heal us from our past and present hurts. I'm really not one to write in books, but I have a feeling that might change with this one. There's just so many good lines and passages in here. Some that I'd like to put up on a wall in a place where I'm sure to see it. Starting with just two words: But God . Those two words and what he says about them have had a major impact on my prayer life. Then I got hit by this gem which I loved: God is bigger than your history and more concerned with your destiny . And that was just chapter 1! I'm a pretty fast reader, but it took me a long time to get through this - not because I wasn't enjoying it, but because it gave me so much to think about. This is going to be one that I'm going to return to over and over again. I believe that Let Hope In is going to be a major blessing to everyone who reads it and I really couldn't recommend it high enough. Get this book. Seriously. Not a Christian? I don't think you have to be in order to get something out of this. You might get a little more out of it if you are a Christian, but this book is very accessible. We could all benefit from a little more hope in our lives. The more hope we have, the better. We just have to choose to let it in. Let Hope In will show you how to do that. *I received an advance copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review.

Letting go of fear and letting hope in. "Sometimes you have to leave what is nailed down, obvious, and secure, and walk into the unknown without any specifics." I am a fan of Pete Wilson's book. They are written in a way that challenges and encourages me. "Let Hope In" was no different. I actually had some walls up reading this book because I wasn't sure if it would speak to me....but I was SO wrong. Right from the get go, I saw ways that I have been squelching hope in my life and how much I needed to hope again. Through his great storytelling weaved with scripture, Pete takes you on a journey of discovery of the four choices that will change your life forever. I rediscovered the things that had been stealing my joy and hope, and found ways to regain hope in my life! Highly recommend this book!

Pete Wilson Does it Again! I know Pete Wilson personally and was fortunate enough to receive an advanced copy of Let Hope In as part of the Launch Team. What struck me first about this book is the subtitle: 4 Choices That Will Change Your Life Forever. That's a lot of pressure. Forever? That seems a little exaggerated. But, after finishing this book, I truly believe that if you make the choices (which are really stepping stones to the main choice of letting hope in) your life can be changed. These 4 Choices Are: Choice #1: Choosing to Transform Instead of Transfer Choice #2: Choosing to Be Okay With Not Being Okay Choice #3: Choosing to Trust Rather Than Please Choice #4: Hurt People, Hurt People, But Free People Choose to Free People Wilson writes of these "...but God" moments, moments where everything looks like its going off track, moments where life doesn't make sense, moments where there is simply no hope...but God shows up. If your past seems to much to handle, if you can't seem to get over that one thing, if you feel like God isn't showing up, I recommend picking up this book and allowing it to be your "...but God" moment. God speaks through Pete Wilson in Let Hope In in remarkable, challenging, and timely ways, and I pray that this book finds its way into the hands of those who need it most.

Whoa, we have a lot of struggles today don't we? It seems we are forever unhappy, stressed out, confused, unsure what to do, who to be, and feel like something is always missing. At least I know that I PERSONALLY have struggled with all of that. Pete Wilson's enlightening and candid words get me every time. He writes beautifully, authentically, and there's even a dash of comic relief in there as well. When we are lost, we must remember there is a God far bigger than us and His plans are far bigger than our plans. When we let the past go, devote our time and energy to becoming all that He wants for us, we CAN live the life we always dreamed of. All it takes is a little hope :) This was an incredible book and I recommend it to all.

“Your past isn’t your past if it’s still impacting your present.” I have had the privilege to read an advanced copy of “Let Hope In,” the new book by Pastor Pete Wilson, which comes out tomorrow, Oct. 1. I can tell you that this book has blessed me in ways I never imagined. We all need hope. A deeply rooted hope in something that is greater than ourselves. Greater than any thing or any one. Hope than can only come through the source. A loving God. Holding onto baggage from our past sets us up for defeat and a feeling of never being able to “measure up.” We carry shame, guilt and regret into every relationship and situation, only to have those things perpetuate a negative pattern and choices that keep us from having the kind of relationship with God that He longs to have with us. Pastor Pete takes readers on a journey to release the strongholds of the past, learning along the way of the sweetness of hope that comes through a relationship that is pure and true. One with the giver of all hope, Jesus. The book takes readers through a process of changing by focusing on four choices: 1. Choosing to transform instead of transfer. 2. Choosing to be okay with not being okay. 3. Choosing to trust rather than to please. 4. Hurt people hurt people, but free people free people. Choose to free people. It’s not an easy journey, but it is worth it. This book will help you start to transition from painful patterns of the past into the freedom of forgiveness and living a life of complete trust in God. It’s only then can we truly have the kind of hope that we all long for in this life.

As a member of Crosspoint Church where Pete Wilson preaches I've always loved how his sermons take stories from the Bible and relate them to everyday life. That is no different for this book. Pete takes stories about Joseph, David and others and uses real life  examples to show that your past doesn't have to impact your future. In other words, learn to transform instead of transfer. These are some quotes from the book that really hit home with me: "My hope is based on a God who can do and will do the impossible." "God's main purpose for you is not what you do. It's who you become." "Time doesn't heal all wounds; God heals wounds." The book is broken down into 4 choices that a person must make in order to let hope in. CHOICE 1: Choosing to transform instead of transfer. CHOICE 2: Choosing to be okay with not being okay. CHOICE 3: Choosing to trust rather than please. CHOICE 4: Hurt people, hurt people, but free people, free people. If you want to learn how to no longer hide from your past, but to make your future full of hope, than this book is for you!

This book is an engaging read that encourages the reader to let go of the things in their past which are acting their presents and embrace hope. Wilson has a wonderful writing style that draws you in and makes you feel like he’s speaking right to you; it’s like he’s welcomed you into his home and sat down with you, to have a chat. He shares many anecdotes about his family, friends and people he has met over the years. While their stories may be different from yours, Wilson has the ability to make connections that can impact readers from all walks of life. The book is broken into four main categories, or choices: - Choice One: Choosing to Transform Instead of Transfer - Choice Two: Choosing to Be Okay with Not Being Okay - Choice Three: Choosing to Trust Rather than Please - Choice Four: Choosing to Free People Rather than Hurt Them In each of these sections Wilson discusses how making the right choice can help you to move beyond your past and your struggles and let hope in. No matter what we’re going through in life, we can choose how it affects us and what we take away from it, and we can rely on God’s love to strengthen us. The message of Wilson’s book is very relevant and one that everyone needs to hear. Wherever you may be in your Christian walk, whether you’re going through struggles at this time or not, there is something in this book for you. If you only have time to read one book on faith this year, choose this book and choose to let hope in.
