Unfettered hope : a call to faithful living in an affluent society
In this prophetic call to faithful Christian living, Marva Dawn identifies the epidemic socio-cultural attitudes that destroy hope in our modern lives. Because affluent persons don't know what to value, we remain dissatisfied with what we have and are compelled to want more at the expense of the world's less forunate. Dawn demonstrates, however, how Christians can organize their lives to live in ways that allow them to love God and neighbor and, in the process, alleviate the despair in their lives and in the lives of others in the world

How can we escape from death and despair?
How can we learn to live the language of focal concerns?
The only unfettered hope is eschatological
