I m not sure what I was expecting from this book but I don t think it was what I found at least in terms of its structure What Good Is God In Search of a Faith That Matters is a collection of talks that Philip Yancey has given in various places around the world each prefaced with a chapter reflecting on the circumstances under which they were given In some instances Yancey addressed communities in the wake of traumatic events in others he spoke to groups who were marginalized and persecuted He spoke in Memphis Tennessee a place I know pretty well and one where nearly every issue is uite literally black or white on the day after the 2008 presidential election discussing the healing influence that the Church Health Center has had on this city with a notorious civil rights history He talked in South Africa about how the country s Truth and Reconciliation Commission has approached its mission He brought survivors of the Columbine shootings with him to a talk at Virginia Tech just after it suffered its own similar tragedy knowing that they d be able to reach each other as few could He spoke at a Cambridge University conference about CS Lewis and that chapter may have been the one I least expected it actually made me want to read CS Lewis writings on ChristianityYancey was brought up in a narrow minded fundamentalist church but has arrived at a expansive worldview and God view which is what he communicates to his listeners He comes across as evangelical in some ways but with a rather non sectarian approach and the time I spent with the book the appealing I found that He takes a pretty strong stand against what he calls legalism or the excessive focus on rules about the proper way to believe and express one s faith that often seems to lead to my Christianity is better than your Christianity competitiveness not especially Christian behavior in my opinion In contrast he seeks to convey what Christianity is by going back to its roots the teachings of Jesus and writings of his early followersDespite some redundancies that I think are at least partly the fault of the book s structure I think that Yancey does a pretty effective job of getting his Christian worldview across to his readers and listeners I rarely felt that I was being preached at and I was surprised to find that I shared some of the viewpoints he expressed I m not sure that what s presented in this book truly matches the premise of its title however In Search of a Faith That Matters implies to me a personal faith journey in some form and that s really not what s chronicled here On top of that the central uestion What Good is God really doesn t seem to be answered I m not uncomfortable with that personally as I ve said before the uestions are what interest me but I do think that some readers might feel a bit misled Having said that I m not sorry I read this one and it s left me with some real food for thoughtDownload What Good Is God?
Philip Yancey ↠ 7 Free read Free download ´ What Good Is God? Speaker journalist and bestselling author Philip Yancey has travelled the world tackling. In this book Philip Yancey presents his ideas about spirituality in an extremely realistic and practical way He examines the concept of God s goodness and the value of faith in the troubled times we live in and does not mince words or give pithy pat answers He honestly looks at some disturbing issues with a view to discovering if God is actually good in that specific situation He is comfortable enough with ambiguity to avoid generalizing and giving advice not based on truth As a committed Christian there are doubts and concerns that are ever present in my mind that a simple Christian answer doesn t uite satisfy and this book does address some of them I love that Yancey challenges the way Christians think about the world without discounting the value of faithThe format of the book follows some tough places that Yancey has been asked to give a talk As he goes along Yancey paints a picture of the place or event the difficulties it might present for someone looking for evidences of the goodness of God He then includes the actual speech given at each place It s powerful to think about Yancey having to address the various groups of people in each location for example addressing students at Virginia Tech shortly after the shooting a group of sex workers in various stages of getting out of the business recovering alcoholics and groups offering aid to the destitute in Africa to name a few issuesThis book is a must read for Christians looking for insight spiritual seekers or even individuals who are curious about the the tenets of the Christian faith Yancey s style makes everything very understandable without being condescending or trite Thanks to the Hachette Book Group for providing this book for a fair review I was not reuired to write a positive review
