In the new book, “Hope on a Rope: Lifelines for Knuckleheads,” First-time author Bill Paige examines the subject of hope through scriptures and personal anecdotes, describing with candor how he encountered issues that could have defeated him. He details how being effective in ministry did not prevent him from facing challenges that could have derailed his personal and spiritual life. But he overcame them and became victorious through his unwavering trust in God. Despite being tested, he never gave up. He never lost hope. In 16 chapters, the retired police officer and former youth chaplain describes how hope has been the singular influence that has kept him through tests and allowed him to share the blessings of a victorious life before audiences over the past 34 plus years. .

A gifted, passionate speaker, Bill Paige has brought a depth of life experiences including 20 years of police and detective work in and around the New York City metropolitan area to his audiences. He also served for 14 years as the associate chaplain at Children’s Village, working with emotionally disturbed boys in the city. He recently retired from 15 plus years of senior leadership in Young Life, most recently as a Special Assistant to the President.  An ordained minister, Bill has held month-long assignments at Young Life camp properties where he has spoken to thousands of young people regarding the basics of the Christian faith.

In addition, he has addressed chapel services for both
the National Football League (NFL) and Major League Baseball (MLB) teams, including two opportunities to speak at the NFL Pro Bowl. He has appeared in talks at high school and college assemblies and traveled internationally to share the gospel of Jesus Christ. 

What people are saying.......

Hope on a Rope: Lifelines for Knuckleheads was a great read. Bill’s style and personality translate so well onto paper. As I read, I heard Bills voice with stories that made me laugh and insight that had me scrambling for paper and pen to take notes. Out of Faith, hope and love, I feel hope has been most neglected and yet, is most needed in so many lives. When you’ve failed, screwed up or even crashed in life... there is Jesus’ promises of HOPE just for you. I so recommend this book.

Its format reads similar to a devotional as each chapter deals with real-life challenges faced in a human experience.

Hope on a Rope: Lifelines for Knuckleheads was an enjoyable, encouraging hope-inspired book to read.
