In this book Douglas Hall presents the outline of a Canadian theology. . . . People hope that things will get better and better. . . . Douglas Hall contrasts this cultural optimism with Christian hope. . . . He argues that the divine promises do not assure us of progress in history; what they offer us instead is a qualitative transformation of society . . . hope for Canada. --Gregory Baum.
