Faith, Hope and Love

$19.95


Jeff Cavins, author of My Life On the Rock and creator of The Great Adventure Bible study program, begins this three-part series on the theological virtues with the question, "Who are you?" With this simple, disarming question, he illustrates that our search for identity - for who we are - is not rooted in our jobs and careers, our talents and abilities, or any external reality. As Cavins notes, we are created in the image and likeness of God, and only by striving to image God can we truly discover who we are.

Quoting eloquently from the teachings of Pope John Paul II, Cavins relates that without love man is incomprehensible to himself; life is senseless. Following the example of Jesus, we discover ourselves only by giving ourselves totally to others. The great youth cry of the 1960's (and, indeed, of all people of every age) "I need to find myself," can only be fulfilled in self-sacrificing love.

Cavins then goes on to discuss faith and hope, stressing that these virtues are intertwined with each other and with love. Faith gives our lives meaning by anchoring them in the truth God has revealed in the person of His Son, and hope is the trust that our future good will be achieved simply because of God's promises. Cavins points out the great difference between the worldly use of the word "hope" and the way it is used in the Bible. In Scripture, there is a certainty to hope - a confidence that what God has promised will be fulfilled.
