How to Become a Christian and Live for Jesus

What People Are Saying

"An amazing book which will help you follow our amazing savior."

— RT Kendall, author and former minister of Westminster Chapel, London

"Sometimes I wonder if we see the Gospel simply as our door into God's presence instead of regarding the Gospel as our only air in God's presence. We don't get over the Gospel, but rather we spend a lifetime allowing God to get the Gospel into us. This book brilliantly does just that. It simply takes you powerfully into what we all desperately need and never stop needing: Hope. The realest, deepest, truest Hope. If you need some Hope — and, honestly, who doesn't? — I humbly, earnestly recommend these pages to you as real water."

— Ann Voskamp, author of the New York Times bestsellers One Thousand Gifts and The Greatest Gift

"People are often saved through a fragment of truth. What comes next is vital. Here is instruction not only to establish Christians in their new identity but also to provide a path to effective Christian living. Their own burgeoning local church provides a great endorsement to Tope's and Adrian's teaching.

— Terry Virgo, author and founder of Newfrontiers

"Once, Jesus was teaching and he told people 'my burden is light.' In other words, he didn't come to weigh us down and make life harder. It seems like there are always people ready to make Christianity complicated and difficult, and that's why I love this book: it captures the simplicity that Jesus originally offered. You need to read this book!"

— Greg Surratt, founding pastor of Seacoast Church, and a founding board member of the Association of Related Churches (ARC).

"This book will help newcomers to the faith discover where hope is born and it will help seasoned believers to remember how not to lose it."

— Frank Viola, bestselling author of God's Favorite Place on Earth and Jesus Now

"There has long been a need for a short, simple, accessible and biblically faithful book explaining the essence of what it means to be a Christian, how to become a Christian, and how to start living as Christian. Hope Reborn meets this need wonderfully. Tope Koleoso and Adrian Warnock explain clearly and concisely the great news of salvation in Jesus, which brings forgiveness, transformation and true hope into our lives. Biblical exposition is combined with pastoral warm, engaging illustrations, real-life stories and practical applications. This book is ideal for those interested in understanding the Christian faith for the first time, for those new to the faith, or for those unsure of their faith. I look forward to using it widely."

— John Stevens, National Director, Fellowship of Independent Evangelical Churches

"Jubilee Church is an engaging church. They are focussed on the proclamation and demonstration of the Gospel, and are growing by conversion. This book will be of great help to anyone who wants to become a Christian. If you have been part of a church for many years Hope Reborn will also help you to bring the gospel back to the center, and to become more confident in explaining it to others."

— Rice Brooks, author, God's Not Dead – The evidence behind the movie.

"Koleoso and Warnock have created a helpful resource for anyone new to Christianity or desiring a better understanding of the faith. Written with a voice of experience, insight, and compassion, this book reflects the authors' pastoral hearts and the character of Jesus himself."

— Amy Simpson, editor, Gifted for Leadership; author, Anxious: Choosing Faith in a World of Worry

"This is an excellent book: simple yet profound, brief yet thorough. Written in a style that is readable and easy to relate to, it covers the critical issues needed for a person to get off to a strong start in their Christian life. I trust and pray that it will be a great resource to many churches and a great blessing to many individuals. May many lives be transformed as a result!"

— David Smith, Senior Pastor, KingsGate Community Church

"Tope and Adrian are the real deal — I've preached in their church, fellowshipped with their families, and believe in their ministry. They know and love the Lord and it comes through in Hope Reborn. If you are a Christian, this book will help you know and share your faith. And, if you're not, it's a great guide to understand what it means to be a follower of Jesus. I commend them and Hope Reborn to you."

— Ed Stetzer, President, LifeWay Research
