Hope: Moments of Inspiration in a Challenging World
Tim Costello, Hardie Grant Books
The Rev. Tim Costello has had the ear of more political, business and opinion leaders than any other clergyperson in Australia’s history, with the possible exception of the Rev. Dr Alan Walker.
His “gift-mix” (lawyer, theologian, ethicist, social activist) together with a passion to help the poor — everywhere — have propelled him into regular media opportunities to “conscientise” us all. And, of course, having a high- profile brother — Peter, our nation’s longest-serving Federal Treasurer (1996-2007) — has provided a topic for many water-cooler and dinner-time discussions. (“How does one family produce two people at different points along the ideological spectrum on many issues?”)
Tim’s latest book contains insights and stories from his travels as CEO of World Vision, and from 57 years of an interesting life.
An excellent gift-idea — and marvellous for couples and families to read and discuss, one short chapter a day, for about two months!
