As a young Christian in his early twenties, Michael Wear found himself deep inside the halls of power in the Obama administration as one of the youngest ever White House staffers. Throwing himself wholeheartedly into transforming hope into change, Michael Wear experienced the highs and lows of working as a Christian in government. Christians have played such a central role in different achievements in the government such as the adoption of tax credit, bringing attention to the prominent issue of human trafficking as well as many religious controversies and tensions that have defined much of the president's time in office. Reclaiming Hope gives an unvarnished account of life inside the most powerful office in the world. At a time when many thoughtful Christians argue for a withdrawal from participation in public institutions, Wear uses his experience to show how and why Christians must be involved in every aspect of cultural life-even if failures seem to outnumber successes-while working on behalf of the nation' s common good.
