Hope and Other Superpowers: A Life-Affirming, Love-Defending, Butt-Kicking, World-Saving Manifesto Reviews

    This book is a call to action. It is a call for activism and resistance against the upside-down world we live in. Americans (in general) and Christians (specifically) no longer seem burdened to love the least, or to be agents of compassion, or to care for your Muslim, gay, African, fem...

    Are you a superhero? You just might have what it takes, a superpower, and not even realize it. This author uses Super Heroes and their attributes as well as things that may be your kryptonite to show the reader how they can deal with their current world. Whether it be outside forces or...

    Author: John Pavlovitz Publisher: Simon & Schuster Simon & Schuster Author?s Book Page Genre: Self-Help: Personal Growth, Motivational, Religion: Christianity, Christian, Social Issues Page Count: 256 pages ISBN: 9781501179655 Publication Date: November 2018...

    In the first chapter, Pastor John Pavlovitz states that ?Adversity (ours or others?) is always an invitation to be transformed.? I feel like that?s a good summary for the message of this book. The author shares many stories, both his own and others?, showing how our most diff...

    Good audiobook- narrated by the author. He is a warm, loving soul with a podcast and following. Not happy with the Trump era. The superhero metaphor is the entire book. Not a lot of new stuff for me, but worth reading. ...

    The full title of the book I?m here to review today is? Hope and Other Superpowers: A Life-Affirming, Love-Defending, Butt-Kicking, World-Saving Manifesto. John Pavlovitz wrote this book and, presumably, picked the title. It is possibly the longest title I?ve ever seen but the bo...

    OUR INTERVIEW WITH JOHN PAVLOVITZ by Sara Bell and Emily Lewis who jointly interviewed John and wrote with article. There are many things that I love about being a book blogger, but nothing beats being able to actually talk to a writer that you both admire and aspire to be more l...

    I loved the premise of this book, but wasn't impressed by the book itself. I'm not sure who the intended audience is. The stories from the author's life and the cursing make me think it is for adults, but the tone is more appropriate for middle-grade children (since my 35 year old, Pre...

    Hope and Other Superpowers using a current trend to help people to understand that they have their gifts. The superhero trend isn't used as a gimmick; John Pavlovitz uses these figures and ideas 6to make the idea of gifts and talents relatable. This metaphor works well in encouraging p...

    4.5 stars HOPE AND OTHER SUPERPOWERS is an uplifting read about how average people can tap into their superpowers and make a difference. I enjoyed the author's approach to inspiring readers by sharing his story and the story of everyday people doing amazing things. The author didn't...

    We're living in difficult times. The economy is going pretty well. At least the Stock Market is going pretty well. But the nation and the world seem more divided than ever. So, where do we find hope? "Hope and Other Superpowers" is the second book written by blogger and sometime pas...

    Hope and other Superpowers is a book calling all of us to be involved. He used fictional superheroes as examples to show that they saw things and got involved to fix them. The author feels that we could make a big difference too if we used our own individual powers. We each have our bu...

    Interesting book. I admire Pavlovitz?s desire to instill hope. I agree with him that average ordinary people are capable of extraordinary impact. However, I don?t recommend this book because of his insistence to present fictitious superheroes as the model of example. The bo...

    I really enjoy John Pavlovitz's blog and appreciate his perspective on life. As a liberal Christian, I also appreciate the way he lets people know that his views are rooted in his faith, without in any way pushing it on people. Example from pg 161: "But this isn't a book about theology...

    More inspiration from pastor John! While I'm not sold on the concept that we all have super-hero abilities inside of us, I do accept that we are stronger/braver/smarter than we think we are. It is the act of choosing to do something where we put those capabilities to use vs. spending...

    I was able to read an advance copy of this book through Netgalley. If you enjoyed John's first book, A Bigger Table, you will love this one. It is the next step - embracing our individual superpowers to effect change in ourselves and in the world. With the daily deluge of bad news, it ...

    This is a book to read when you are ready to give up. When there is just too much wrong with the world and you simply can?t face it for another day, much less fight it. John Pavlovitz reminds you that you are not alone, that your actions do affect others and that the good fight is ne...

    A call to activism at many levels. Pavlovitz takes the reader through character traits (compassion, honesty, etc.) needed to be a superhero in today's world. Not necessarily new material but summarized in one location. He challenges/encourages the reader to see where they're called to...

    This book was hope-filled, and just what I needed. I highly recommend it. And now I?m off to save the world, or at least to use what I have to contribute to the things I believe are life-giving. I listened to it, read by the author. That, and his honesty, his choice of stories to s...

    Love John Pavlovitz and this book! He speaks truth to power and encourages us to be super heroes in our own communities. He is a true Christian -- he loves all human souls. ...

    This book was inspirational and informative. John Pavlovitz is a great writer in any format. I've been enjoying his articles for the couple of years I've known about him. ...

    This is a book to read when you are ready to give up. When there is just too much wrong with the world and you simply can?t face it for another day, much less fight it. John Pavlovitz reminds you that you are not alone, that your actions do affect others and that the good fight is ne...

    A call to activism at many levels. Pavlovitz takes the reader through character traits (compassion, honesty, etc.) needed to be a superhero in today's world. Not necessarily new material but summarized in one location. He challenges/encourages the reader to see where they're called to...

    This book was hope-filled, and just what I needed. I highly recommend it. And now I?m off to save the world, or at least to use what I have to contribute to the things I believe are life-giving. I listened to it, read by the author. That, and his honesty, his choice of stories to s...

    A call to activism at many levels. Pavlovitz takes the reader through character traits (compassion, honesty, etc.) needed to be a superhero in today's world. Not necessarily new material but summarized in one location. He challenges/encourages the reader to see where they're called to...

    This book was hope-filled, and just what I needed. I highly recommend it. And now I?m off to save the world, or at least to use what I have to contribute to the things I believe are life-giving. I listened to it, read by the author. That, and his honesty, his choice of stories to s...

    4.5 stars HOPE AND OTHER SUPERPOWERS is an uplifting read about how average people can tap into their superpowers and make a difference. I enjoyed the author's approach to inspiring readers by sharing his story and the story of everyday people doing amazing things. The author didn't...

    We're living in difficult times. The economy is going pretty well. At least the Stock Market is going pretty well. But the nation and the world seem more divided than ever. So, where do we find hope? "Hope and Other Superpowers" is the second book written by blogger and sometime pas...

    Hope and other Superpowers is a book calling all of us to be involved. He used fictional superheroes as examples to show that they saw things and got involved to fix them. The author feels that we could make a big difference too if we used our own individual powers. We each have our bu...

    Interesting book. I admire Pavlovitz?s desire to instill hope. I agree with him that average ordinary people are capable of extraordinary impact. However, I don?t recommend this book because of his insistence to present fictitious superheroes as the model of example. The bo...

    I really enjoy John Pavlovitz's blog and appreciate his perspective on life. As a liberal Christian, I also appreciate the way he lets people know that his views are rooted in his faith, without in any way pushing it on people. Example from pg 161: "But this isn't a book about theology...

    More inspiration from pastor John! While I'm not sold on the concept that we all have super-hero abilities inside of us, I do accept that we are stronger/braver/smarter than we think we are. It is the act of choosing to do something where we put those capabilities to use vs. spending...

    I was able to read an advance copy of this book through Netgalley. If you enjoyed John's first book, A Bigger Table, you will love this one. It is the next step - embracing our individual superpowers to effect change in ourselves and in the world. With the daily deluge of bad news, it ...

    This is a book to read when you are ready to give up. When there is just too much wrong with the world and you simply can?t face it for another day, much less fight it. John Pavlovitz reminds you that you are not alone, that your actions do affect others and that the good fight is ne...

    A call to activism at many levels. Pavlovitz takes the reader through character traits (compassion, honesty, etc.) needed to be a superhero in today's world. Not necessarily new material but summarized in one location. He challenges/encourages the reader to see where they're called to...

    This book was hope-filled, and just what I needed. I highly recommend it. And now I?m off to save the world, or at least to use what I have to contribute to the things I believe are life-giving. I listened to it, read by the author. That, and his honesty, his choice of stories to s...

    Love John Pavlovitz and this book! He speaks truth to power and encourages us to be super heroes in our own communities. He is a true Christian -- he loves all human souls. ...

    This book is a call to action. It is a call for activism and resistance against the upside-down world we live in. Americans (in general) and Christians (specifically) no longer seem burdened to love the least, or to be agents of compassion, or to care for your Muslim, gay, African, fem...

    Are you a superhero? You just might have what it takes, a superpower, and not even realize it. This author uses Super Heroes and their attributes as well as things that may be your kryptonite to show the reader how they can deal with their current world. Whether it be outside forces or...

    Good audiobook- narrated by the author. He is a warm, loving soul with a podcast and following. Not happy with the Trump era. The superhero metaphor is the entire book. Not a lot of new stuff for me, but worth reading. ...

    The full title of the book I?m here to review today is? Hope and Other Superpowers: A Life-Affirming, Love-Defending, Butt-Kicking, World-Saving Manifesto. John Pavlovitz wrote this book and, presumably, picked the title. It is possibly the longest title I?ve ever seen but the bo...
