The fascinating story of how and why Liverpool Hope University was created, and of the inspiring vision behind it that was driven by Archbishop Derek Worlock (1920-1996), the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Liverpool, and Bishop David Sheppard (1929-2005), Anglican Bishop of Liverpool.
This fully-illustrated, hardback book, is also the story of the three foundation colleges of the University, in the 19th century, and of a time of great industrialisation and urban growth of the port on the River Mersey. However, this is also the story of the role played by those colleges in fighting the poverty, illness, unemployment, and ignorance of those times.
This book tells how the founders of the university brought hope and practical, meaningful educational opportunities to a community hungry for a postive future for themselves, their families, and their community.
A Brighter Hope tells too of the role and work of the university in the modern world: Not just across Liverpool and Merseyside, but across Britain and around the world. Liverpool Hope University not only brings hope, but it also provides practical education, of the highest quality, to the widest possible number of people.
