His message is that the greatest limitations in life are those we place on ourselves.
Hope became an author in 2012 when his book, In Hines Sight - The Ups, Downs and Rebounds of 40 Years in Sports Broadcasting was published.

Now faith is being sure of what we hope for
and certain of what we do not see.
