Publisher's Summary

What’s at the heart of every thriving person, every thriving marriage, kid, and business?

Hope!

The Hope Quotient is a revolutionary new method for measuring - and dramatically increasing - your level of hope. Hope is more than a feeling; it’s the by-product of seven key factors. When these are present in your life, they cause hope to thrive.

Using seven years of research, powerful biblical illustrations, and compelling human-interest stories, Ray Johnston explains how these seven essential factors will support, sustain, and strengthen your hope. And when consciously built into your life, how they will unleash hope in your marriage, your kids, your career, your church, your community, and the world.

Hope leads to despair

Hope is important, it's just too bad his own church was so discouraging. I brought a lot hope to his church and all I got in return was discouragement ("The Devil's anesthesia"). I was so blindsided by their judgment and their criticism I can't view the congregation the same anymore. That's a nice thought in the book to bad Bayside doesn't operate that way. My experience made the book feel, not as authentic as it did before, I felt taken. Hope leads to despair. Ray is a great speaker and he gets paid a lot of money, he's good at what he does.

This is NOT a non-fiction science based book

What disappointed you about The Hope Quotient?

The author is a preacher and self promoted authority on Hope because hope comes from the bible and god. This is NOT a non-fiction science based book.

Would you ever listen to anything by Ray Johnston again?

No - this book was a religious based text.

Any additional comments?

I think religious based books promoted as science based are deceptive. Kind of funny that religious folks approve of deception to get their message out.
