"Ikeda reminds us that hope is neither easy nor does it mean acquiescence to injustice. These essays open our eyes to the profound and courageous determination required of those who decide for hope." --Sarah Wider, professor, English and Women's Studies, Colgate University "Daisaku Ikeda draws from the well-spring of his eventful life and imparts page after page of rich insight, royal wisdom and spiritual truth. This volume will greatly strengthen your devotional meditations and commitment to personal and global peace." --Lawrence E. Carter Sr., Dean, Martin Luther King Jr. Chapel, Morehouse College "In this collection Daisaku Ikeda beckons us to probe deeper into our own lives so that we can change the world around us. Having witnessed and experienced the worst, he reaffirms that life does continue, that the light of hope can be found in the very darkest corners." --Anwarul K. Chowdhury, former Under-Secretary-General, United Nations "Hope Is a Decision: Selected Essays is Ikeda's latest contribution of timely, relevant, contemporary commentaries on the critically important issues of life in our world today. Informed and informative, thoughtful and thought-provoking, inspired and inspiring, the book is very highly recommended." --Midwest Book Review "Ikeda's lyrical and contemplative musings give ample reason for hope and optimism, especially during a time when darkness seems to be descending on the world . . . . Ikeda has much to say about the human condition, and he does so artfully and with great understanding." --Joseph S. Pete, Foreword Reviews
