"Ambivalent Hope" laces up your shoes and takes you on a journey in the lifestyle of the poor while uniting the privileged and underprivileged by assimilating our most basic need, God's guiding voice and His innate ability to victoriously elevate you beyond circumstance. It focuses on the generational effects of decisions you make in life today. It constructs cultural issues that can be understood and appreciated by all. Tumaini Battle was born and raised in the worst project of South Central in Los Angeles, California. When he witnessed the death of his uncle, who believed he was forsaken by God, Tumaini struggled throughout his childhood and adult life with the question, "Is there a God in the ghetto?" "Ambivalent Hope: A Gun and a Prayer" chronicles the life of that young boy who was snatched away from his alcoholic mother and forced to survive and protect his little "bro bro" in foster care homes. During his most influential years, he was left to fend for himself and learn from the streets. The book goes on to paint a vivid picture of Tumaini's adult life, which is a tug-of-war between what he knows is right/wrong and the bad influences that he fell victim to growing up. Tumaini has a good heart but struggles to show the corresponding actions. His rocky relationship with everyone close to him is a reflection of his relationship with God. Tumaini is forced to choose to trust either God or the words of his late "God-forsaken" uncle when he reaches his moment of despair.
