Format: Paperback
I love this book. It is an intimate glimpse into the story of hidden lives. Unless you have spent years, decades, on the street becoming a safe person for the folks who survive there, you will never have a chance to hear these stories. Tim Huff honors both the story-holders and the reader by sharing them. Please, read it.

Format: Paperback
Bent Hope is a powerful book of heart warming stories, heart ache and hope. Beautifully written, and absorbing, Tim walks you through life on the streets of Toronto, through his powerful insightful eyes. So far from ego, he brings a warmth and humanity to all he does, his tenders moments, his admission of confusion, difficult decisions, and ultimately his pure honest and goodness shines through.

It is inspiring, providing a real life glimpse at hope and despair, Bent Hop that is.

A powerful book of the experiences of Tim Huff a street minister from Toronto. A real wake up call about those he knew and ministered to, a challenge to me and everyone to open our hearts to those who live on the street.

HASH(0x9ca3eeb8) out of 5 stars This book gives me hope Nov. 25 2008
By Heather - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is nothing short of brilliant. You should ALL read it. Really. It will change you. It will change the way you look at the "drunk" sleeping in the office doorway or the "punk" trying to bum a cigarette. It will make you want to sit down beside someone on the street and listen to their story.

Tim Huff has an uncanny way of bending words into incredible stories and undeniable wisdom. More than that, though, he has an uncanny way of seeing through the dirt under the fingernails, the smell of yesterday's alcohol, and the bitterness of a life gone off the rails to the nugget of truth and beauty underneath. He doesn't sugarcoat life on the streets - no, it's raw and real and ugly - but what he does is recognize the tiny light of hope - even if it's badly bent out of shape and barely recognizable - shining through each person he meets.

Here's the thing - more than just a powerful set of stories, this book renews my desire to believe in God. This book reminds me that if we set aside the many failures of the church, the messed up legalism and hate disguised as "WWJD", the narrow-mindedness and judgementalism - if we set all of that aside and look to the pure and unadulterated message and life of Jesus, we will find what we've all been aching for - hope. Tim Huff is out on the streets trying to live out that message of hope in a way that few pastors, televangelists, or social justice soap-box shouters have ever done. Not only that, but he's letting the light of hope shine through the stories and lives of messed up people to teach those of us who've let cynicism blind us that it really is okay to dream of a different future.
