Hope Unleashed challenges Christians to evangelize their communities through unashamed proclamation of the gospel and bold community action projects to reach the poor. Committed to bringing the Christian message to youth in his hometown of Manchester, England, Andy Hawthorne was shocked when a missions partner told him he shouldn't just preach the gospel but also engage in community projects. What has washing someone's car got to do with the gospel? The idea worked, and today Hawthorne's Message Trust has been praised internationally for bringing hope and change to the roughest, poorest neighborhoods of Manchester.Written in a warm, passionate, nonreligious style, Hope Unleashed is filled with moving true stories as well as practical ideas and strategies for Christian mission based on Word and deed.
