What Good is God?
On the Road with Stories of Grace
By Philip Yancey
When life gets tough what use is a belief in God?
Speaker, journalist and bestselling author, Philip Yancey has travelled the world tackling the most challenging questions: Can God truly bring solace to the terrorised people of Mumbai, or the students who witnessed the murder of their classmates? Will the deep scars of racism ever heal in post-apartheid South Africa, or the American South? Can a persecuted Christian minority have any impact in places as hostile as China or the Middle East?
For each of his ten destinations, WHAT GOOD IS GOD? shares Philip's inspiring words of encouragement and reveals the compelling story behind the speaking engagement.
Whether he's addressing alcoholics or Bible college students, sex workers or C.S. Lewis enthusiasts, Yancey's experiences of redemption, hope and grace provide evidence that when we are severely tested, faith really does matter.
Author of CBC Book of the Year 2007 - PRAYER, Philip Yancey is one of the most popular and acclaimed religious writers of our day. His searching and refreshingly honest books, have encouraged and inspired millions of people around the world. With a background in journalism, Philip prefers to ask the questions instead of answer them. This has led him through a path of re-discovering his faith and sharing that publicly through his writing in some of the most heart-felt ways imaginable. Philip admits that he lost his faith in a racist church and made a living out of being a doubter and sceptic. After he came back to his faith, he wrote books about his journey by `circling the edges` of common issues and eventually moving on to topics like Jesus, grace and most recently prayer.
