Product Description

Does what we believe about God really matter? In What Good is God? Phillip Yancey travels the globe in search of an answer. From Virginia Tech's devastated campus, to shell-shocked Mumbai, India--he uncovers faith and hope alive in the hearts of those you may least expect. Yancey also shares several messages he delivered at speaking engagements, such as a conference on ministry to women in prostitution, or at Oxford University for the C.S. Lewis Foundation. Each of the ten stories Yancey shares offer firsthand evidence that faith does matter in real life, even when that belief is sorely tested.

Publisher's Weekly

The search for God in the midst of horror, disaster, and loss has confounded believers for centuries. How does belief actually matter in the lives of those who suffer? Yancey, popular journalist and public speaker, travels the world and attempts to make some theological sense of the hurting people and devastated places he observes, from Virginia Tech to Mumbai. The author is very adept at walking the fine line between being "in" the world and being "of" the world. His global treks allow opportunities for dialogue with other cultures and religions, but his grounding is clearly in Christian scripture, which serves as a safe port when he encounters choppy secular waters. Particularly moving are the author's stories about China and his trip to a convention for former sex workers in Wisconsin. Somehow, redemption shines through in all of these encounters, and faith in God and humanity emerges intact, if a little bruised. The author truly believes that God can be found in the lives of ordinary people all over the world, and his compelling stories may just convince others, too.
