Picking up where he left off in bestseller WHERE IS GOD WHEN IT HURTS?, Philip Yancey tells stories from his recent life experiences, raising this perennial question but suggesting fresh encouragement for faith - even when it is most severely put to the test.
Philip Yancey is one of the most popular and acclaimed religious writers of our day. His searching and refreshingly honest books, which include Finding God in Unexpected Places, Soul Survivor, Prayer and What Good is God have encouraged and inspired millions of people around the world.With a background in journalism, Philip admits that he 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 and tried ways imaginable. A true wordsmith, a curator of language, Philip tackles difficult issues with an approach of 'this is what I've wrestled with and how I got through it so perhaps you might find it helpful too' making his reading incredibly engaging. 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.Billy Graham has said that there is no one in the evangelical world whom he admires more.
In his new book, Philip Yancey returns to the question, 'what is God up to in a world of such tragedy and pain?'. Many of his best-selling books have considered this, most difficult of question and with 'The Question that Never Goes Away' Yancey continues to express his own journey in print. - Aslan Christian BooksPhilip Yancey is interviewed by Sharon Barnard, for Woman Alive Magazine. - Woman Alive Magazine - Sharon Barnard
