Publisher's Description

Journalist and spiritual seeker Philip Yancey has always struggled with the most basic questions of the Christian faith. The question he tackles in WHAT GOOD IS GOD? concerns the practical value of belief in God. His search for the answer to this question took him to some amazing settings around the world: Mumbai, India when the firing started during the terrorist attacks; at the motel where Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated; on the Virginia Tech campus soon after the massacre; an AA convention; and even to a conference for women in prostitution. At each of the 10 places he visited, his preparation for the visit and exactly what he said to the people he met each provided evidence that faith really does work when what we believe is severely tested. WHAT GOOD IS GOD? tells the story of Philips journey--the background, the preparation, the presentations themselves. Here is a story of grace for armchair travelers, spiritual seekers, and those in desperate need of assurance that their faith really matters.

    This is an interesting read from the start. Yancey interweaves a backstory with an actual lecture he made at various venues over the past 5 to 10 years. The writing is beautiful and the stories are gripping. But this is little theological, biblical reply to the question asked in the title. Anecdotes are cleverly written, and only a cold heart would deny that the events recounted display an opportunity to warm the questioning soul toward things of God and probe the bigger question of God's value in daily living and in His goodness. But I did not find consistent take-home messages that could be universalized, because so little scripture is sighted to substantiate Yancey's claims. Interesting book to read, but not what I thought I was getting from reading the title or the description.

    Philip Yancy is the writer all true seekers of answers that we would ask if we dared. He has done it again. Read it if you want an honest answer to the question.

    Philip Yancey has long been one of my favorite authors!

    He has an honest and engaging writing style that draws me into his subject matter. He makes a strong presentation of God's amazing love and grace to all who seek Him. He uses his own life experiences and personal struggles to teach how God deals with each of us in a unique way to bring us to himself. Yancey also uses stories to present real life examples of God's mighty work in all our lives. I am always deeply touched by his books.

    There isn't enough time for all the good books written, so focus on the great ones. This is a great book. Yancey demonstrates the purpose of faith in the hardest of circumstances with his simple and clear approach.
