Professor Pamela McCarroll’s second book is now available!

We are thrilled to announce that The Rev. Dr. Pamela McCarroll’s second book this year, The End of Hope—The Beginning: Narratives of Hope in the Face of Death and Trauma, is now available for purchase.  If you are interested in purchasing the book, you can do so online through Indigo, Amazon or Google Books, or check with your local book retailer!

Our experiences of hope in the face of difficulties are as varied as our lives, and yet there has been very little examination of the ways we hope.

A skilled and compassionate storyteller, McCarroll introduces readers to five expressions of hope through detailed and poignant case studies. On that foundation she then builds a discussion of the possibilities, limitations, and value of each approach. The result is an engaging and optimistic exploration of hope in difficult times.

“Pamela R. McCarroll’s creative analysis of the highly complex notion of hope invites spiritual care providers and others to wade into the conversation. McCarroll takes seriously the crisis of hope that occurs when we encounter tragedy, grief, and other endings. She shows how hope takes new and unexpected forms: the refusal to give up, the despondency in letting go, the insistence to keep on living, the courage to be vulnerable and angry, and more. The often surprising resilience of the human spirit comes alive in these pages. Each person will recognize her or himself at points in these narratives of hope.” —Tracy J. Trothen Queen’s University
