What Good is God?

Full Product Description

What Good Is God travels to destinations across the world tackling the most challenging questions. In What Good is God, Yancey relives the stories from ten places where he was asked to come and speak. A richly textured reading experience, What Good Is God? Is perfect for armchair travellers, spiritual seekers and Philip Yancey fans alike. In this book, Philip journey's to places and events that had an uncanny way of reflecting, directly or ironically, on the very stories he brought with him to tell.

What Good Is God explores the addressing of alcoholics, Bible college students, sex workers and C.S Lewis enthusiasts, and experiences the power of the redemption, hope and grace when we are tested in life and provides evidence that faith really does matter. It shares words of encouragement and reveals the compelling story behind each speaking engagement.

A Little Bit About Philip Yancey

On many memorable occasions, journalist, pilgrim and bestselling author of 'Prayer' Philip Yancey has delivered speeches offering the right words in the wake of great wrongs; when the firing started during the terrorist attacks in Mumbai, India; at the motel where Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated on the same night an African-American was being elected president of the country; on the Virginia Tech campus after the massacre in 2007 in the shadow of his own near-death experience. On each of these occasions Philip Yancey brought tidings of hope amid headlines of despair, to identify with those who are broken whilst offering insights of healing, but primarily to tell stories of grace for those in desperate need of it.

Philip grew up surrounded by strong conceptions of Christianity and God, being forced to think in certain ways and he was misguided and led down the wrong path to God. He eventually broke out of this world and started to discover his own faith and not the one that was pushed upon him. Yancey began to express his feelings and explore the Christian faith through books and writing, creating bestselling books such as 'Disappointment with God and Where it Hurts?' and has now gone on to produce over 15 million books worldwide and has asked poignant questions that have captured millions of Christians.

Philip is an outgoing individual who enjoys skiing, mountain climbing, nature and of course writing. He claims that he is recovering from a bad church upbringing and uses his writings to explore and investigate about issues he thinks about. Philip is regarded as an honest and talented writer and is described by Billy Graham, as a writer that he 'admires and appreciates more than any other'.

What Good is God? by Philip Yancey was published by Hodder & Stoughton in September 2010 and is our 13917th best seller. The ISBN for What Good is God? is 9780340996140.
