Active Hope is a book for everyone.
Instead of just bemoaning the state of the world, Joanne Macy and Chris Johnstone offer a heart warming way to improve our own lives and those of others. Those of us that tend to get overwhelmed by the sheer size of the problems we face and become frozen into inactivity will find a wealth of comfort and sound practical advice.
The invitation of this book is to stop being overwhelmed and start living in a way that makes a difference even if it's small. The first steps in any journey are the most important.

Anyone who writes, like me, or aspires to write, as I did before I encountered Freefall, will find this book very useful. Barbara is a wonderful teacher and a superb writer.

But I did like it, I liked and enjoyed it.
I found it interesting, gripping even.
It is well written, easy to read and tells a compelling story.
I have a good feeling that Dennis's book will help me… Read more
