HOPE Against HOPE: The Anchor of Our Soul

“Hope is something we can possess, but it is also something we can lose.” — Nancy Missler

Hope Against Hope
Price: $18.95

You can have faith, but still be hopeless. After being a Christian for over 60 years, I, too, lost my hope this past year as I faced overwhelming and multiple physical challenges. When you lose your hope, you not only lose your mooring and your grounding, you also lose your vision and your dreams. But God…loved me so much…that he used my pain and suffering to teach me what real hope in Him means.

That’s what this book is all about.

Hope is “the tie or the connection to the Lord behind the veil.” Hope not only allows us to “see Him who is invisible” in the midst of our trials, it also gives us the endurance to go on. Only “hope” can become “the anchor of our soul” when everything around us is crashing and burning. (Hebrews 6:18-19)

Like Abraham, “who against hope believed in hope,” we must learn to unconditionally trust the Lord to do the impossible, regardless of what we see, what we think, or what we feel. (Romans 4:18)


This is such a timely book! Nancy Missler has once again faithfully shared the truths of God’s Word that she has learned in a time of trouble—incredibly deep trouble.

Her willingness to share her story, even when it includes being transparent about weakness and failure, allows us to walk that path with her and see why the truth she found is so profound and important.

Her words will inspire and equip readers to find the Hope they need, and be ready to share it with others!

    Thank you for sharing a little about this book. I woke up angry and tired, from all that is going on in my life. Just what you wrote changed my perspective on my trial, or perhaps changed my perspective on how I should be responding, it already gave me hope, that there is purpose and promise, like Abraham, I should by faith and patience (ie: persevere) inherit the promise. I ordered the book, so I can learn how to wait in hope through this.

    Dearest Nan
    Have intended to write for sometime but the past several months have been all consuming ones. Wanted to let you and Chuck know that God took my precious Scott from my arms and placed him in the arms of Jesus on February 11 of this year.. As you can imagine, a piece of my heart is gone and I long to be with him. The verse you emphasize in your latest book “hope the anchor of the soul” has been so meaningful to me. It’s this hope in Jesus that connects us behind the veil. It’s this hope that keeps me connected to Scott. I am so grateful, Nan, that you are off those drugs and continue to keep you in my prayers for His healing. I often think of, with fondness, our times at your kitchen table where your book Be Ye Transformed was birthed. I love you dearly, Betty

    Dear church:
    I’m very depressed right now and I sometimes feel there is nothing left to live for. Your web site makes me feel a lot better. Please pray for me. I love you people very much and I love your web site. You make me feel better. Keep up the good work.

    Love Darr

    I’m a fairly new Christian who has cancer. I just got done with my “fluff” book and started “Hope Against Hope” this afternoon. I’m hooked and I’m only a short way in. I wish I could meet Nancy…If truth be told, I wish she were here with us and could be a speaker at Night of Hope!! She’s already taught me stuff in just the few pages I have read. Thank you so much for sharing her book with me…D.H.

    Prayers for you Nancy… and a few scriptures, “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you…” Jn 14:27 and “I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh.” Acts 2:17 Lord we pray for this woman of God in Jesus precious name that you will heal her, fill her, and give her peace that passeth all understanding in Jesus name!

    Loving the book, can’t wait to read all of it! I love Nancy’s transparency in her walk with the Lord and her desire to encourage others to keep holding on to God no matter what circumstance comes their way! She is a real life example of daily walking with Jesus that we can all relate to! Thank you for sharing your life and your walk with us, Nancy! Keeping you in prayer! Love Sandy

    Hi Nan: Your book will be an inspiration to our congregation; our church building was sold; a young couple are converting it into a home; but we are still a church body today, without a building; believing God for an open heaven and miracles. We are standing in God’s love and unity. Our Bible Study Group have studied your Way Of Agape and and Be Ye Transformed and they have ministered to us greatly. I have also enjoyed Faith In The Night Seasons; it was great too. We are looking forward to purchasing Hope Against Hope and your complete healing in the Lord. May God’s blessings and love be with you and your family.

    Our ladies Bible Study would like to do Nancy’s new book, Hope Against Hope, in the Fall. Do you think the book will be available by September? We would order one hundred or more copies.
    Our ladies have been praying for Nancy.

    Blessings and prayers, Kit
