Praise from Readers
"Guideposts magazine has inspired me in my daily walk of faith and journey through life for over 40 years. Now, The Promise of Hope by Editor-in-Chief Edward Grinnan, provides additional inspiration and encouragement in my life. His brilliant use of the English language is like a beautiful musical score. All I can say is 'Well done!'"
"Chapter 1 was excellent! I loved the story about Bill Irwin & his dog Orient. It was touching & brought me to tears. As Edward wrapped up Ch. 1 talking about himself, I could feel his pain. His last words, 'I wanted to change. But how?' have left me wanting to read on. An excellent beginning to his book—I'm hooked and cannot wait to read more!"
"This book is wonderful! I started reading it yesterday and am more than halfway through."
"The Promise of Hope is touching, sincere, honest...and powerful. Filled with riveting stories, personal tragedy and triumphs, this book will touch hearts and change lives. I cherish every word."
—Debbie Macomber, #1 NY Times Best-Selling Author and Daily Guideposts Contributing Writer
"Powerful. Healing. A must-read for anyone looking to change their life for the better. For years Edward Grinnan has brought us the inspiring true stories of others. This time he tells his own... This is the kind of book you keep on the nightstand or in your travel bag."
—Byron Pitts, CBS Evening News Chief National Correspondent and 60 Minutes Contributing Correspondent
"Ed Grinnan says 'stories are our roadmap through life.' By that definition his own life's story is a veritable atlas of travels from the darkest depths of despair to redemption. His skillful intertwining of his own story with that of others is a poignant reminder that each of us can be grateful for challenge as well as change."
