MEDIA ADVISORY, Feb. 10, 2011 /Christian Newswire/ -- J. Davis Illingworth has a successful automotive career behind him, and a big vision for reaching the world for Christ ahead of him. The first two products in Illingworth's 'God of Hope' project, a 153-page paperback book and its accompanying study/discussion guide, have just been released by BMH Books of Winona Lake, Ind.

Through unique first-person testimonies by the disciple Thomas, the prophet Moses, the apostle Paul and the disciple John, God of Hope tells God's story. Together these stories describe the energy, passion, and brilliance of God's mysterious plan for the universe.

Darrell Waltrip, NASCAR champion, Hall of Fame nominee and Fox broadcaster, said, "This project is so Dave -- it covers all the bases and pays close attention to detail. I love the way it connects my story, His story, and your story."

The author, J. Davis (Dave) Illingworth, Jr., was formerly Senior Vice President and Chief Planning and Administrative Officer of Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc. He was with Lexus from the division's inception until 1992. Illingworth was named Automotive News All-Star for 1997; Automobile Magazine's 1992 "Man of the Year" for his leadership of the new Lexus Division; and one of the auto industry's "Top 10 Newsmakers" by Automotive News.

The study guide that accompanies the book God of Hope includes stimulating discussion questions that are designed to be used by small groups, Adult Bible Fellowships, or for individual study.

The God of Hope book retails for $14.95 and its ISBN number is 978-0-88469-271-3. The God of Hope Study Guide, ISBN# 978-0-88469-275-1, retails for $4.95.
