Publisher's Description

What on earth are you missing? In A Skeptic’s Guide to Faith, previously titled Rumors of Another World, Philip Yancey writes: “I am where you are . . . an ordinary person trying to figure things out. I love, I experience beauty and pain, my friends die, I weep, I live. And as I live I try to figure out if there is a God, and what difference would that make . . . This book comes out of my own search and is written on behalf of those who live outside of belief—that borderlands region between belief and unbelief.” How many times have you heard someone say, “I’m spiritual but not religious?” Or perhaps you’ve had that thought yourself. For some people, religious faith seems to come easily, but for others it comes in a swirl of doubts and questions. In A Skeptic’s Guide to Faith, Philip Yancey confronts the questions head-on, from the stance of a skeptic. He asks, “Is the visible world around us all there is?” and then examines the apparent contradictions. If this is God’s world, why doesn’t it look more like it? Finally, the book considers how two worlds—the visible and invisible—might affect our daily lives. Does faith really make a difference day to day? A Skeptic’s Guide to Faith reads like a conversation, inviting those skeptical of religion and turned off by the church to consider the possibility of an unseen world coexisting with our visible world. According to Yancey, “A thin membrane of belief separates the natural from the supernatural.” What makes it so hard for some of us to cross that membrane? Look inside to find out.

    It's always a joy to read one of Philip Yancey's books. While there were some incredibly good pages of enlightenment, it did take some time to get acclimated to its many transitions. The beginning chapters I felt were a bit choppy. But, once I hit that really good wave, I rode it out. It was well worth the wait lasting to the very shore. Yancey writes so eloquently of the "dual- citizenship" life of the believing Christian; living in both the seen and unseen world... the place where we abide when living in faith. When looking at our world in these times of suffering and injustice, I have to remind myself that this is not heaven, but earth; an imperfect earth. The chapter on the elephant man stands out as one of which could be read over and over again. Beautiful and an example of how Yancey explains the unseen. I was given this book and today passed it on to a good friend, knowing what a great read he will have. Note: this is not a book to be gulped, but rather sipped and slowly sipped. Also, note that it was previously titled "Rumors of Another World."
