Bent Hope
Tim Huff


56 x 9 - 192 Pages

Bent Hope was born out of Tim Huff’s first twenty years of unique and extensive work among homeless and street-involved youth and adults, in one of North America’s largest urban centres—Toronto, Canada. Bent Hope is a collection of thoughtful narratives birthed beneath crumbling bridges and in the hidden alcoves of darkened alleyways after midnight. These gripping true-life stories surface quietly from unforgiving corridors of fear, hurt and uncertainty—and unexpectedly and supernaturally transform them into fascinating places of intimacy and godly anticipation.

“Tim is a true champion for justice. He also happens to be a street poet, a missional activist, and a wide-eyed mystic who is able to discern the traces of God in the strangest of places. This book is an enticing exploration of redemptive grace-in-action on the streets of Toronto.”

– Alan Hirsch, Author of The Forgotten Ways as well as The Shaping of Things to Come
(co-written with Michael Frost). Now living in the USA, Alan has also founded
and led a missional movement among the marginalized in Melbourne, Australia.

“This book is simply wonderful. I feel like I’ve lived another life as I have read it.
I’m not generally one for such language, but it is truly an anointed piece of work.”

– Steve Bell, Juno and multi award-winning, internationally renowned
singer/musician/songwriter and co-founder of Signpost Music.

“Read three or four chapters of Bent Hope, then try to tell me with a straight face
that you don’t want to drop whatever you’ve been doing with your life, and hang out
with homeless youth.”

– Greg Paul, Author of God in the Alley and The Twenty Piece Shuffle,
Executive Director of Sanctuary Ministries, a member of the Sanctuary community
in Toronto, and a sometime ministry partner of Tim’s.

Tim Huff has traveled extensively throughout Canada, the United States,
and into Europe, researching, networking and training in community developmentand creative and compassionate responses to domestic poverty and homelessness.
He is the author and illustrator of the best-selling children’s book The Cardboard Shack Beneath the Bridge: Helping Children Understand Homelessness, published by Castle Quay Books.
