Publisher's Description

“¿Por qué la iglesia provoca sentimientos tan negativos?”. Philip Yancey ha estado haciendo esa pregunta toda su vida como periodista. Su pregunta es más relevante ahora que nunca: en un periodo de veinte años comenzando desde mitad de los noventa, la investigación muestra que las opiniones favorables hacia el cristianismo se han desplomado de manera drástica; y las opiniones de los evangélicos han caído incluso más profundamente. Yancey examina lo que pudo haber contribuido a la hostilidad hacia los evangélicos. Ofrece esclarecedoras formas de cómo la fe puede expresarse de maneras que desarmen incluso a los críticos más cínicos y examina qué son las Buenas Nuevas y lo que vale la pena preservar en una cultura que cree que ha rechazado la fe cristiana.

    While the author makes a good overall point, I found that it was a bit "all over the place" and wandering (perhaps an attempt to stretch the point to a certain number of print pages?!) Toward the end I found myself skimming, as I felt I was not going to get anything more out of the book.

    Vanishing Grace: Whatever Happened to the Good News?

    Once again Philip Yancey has sounded out a clarion call to the Church to return to her first (and only) love. He addresses the issue of the centrality of grace, much as he did in his first book on the center of the Christian life, with candor, truth, intelligence and, of course, grace. Sounding warnings against the empty idols of affluence, legalism and the noxious culture wars, this is a call we must heed if we are to regain our Biblical identity and restore faithfulness to Christ as our chief end. Very well done.

    Vanishing Grace is a sequel to his Whats So Amazing About Grace, sort of. Reading the book makes me remember Jesus in Matthew 23:27. Not that Christians are Pharisees, but some if not most have slipped into Phariseeical philosophies and practices. This perhaps explain why there are others who are turned off with Christianity. Due to our own doing, consciously and unconsciously, we have reduced Christianity from a relationship with Jesus Christ rooted from grace to a religion of some sort.

    I say that the premise of this book is that we should be able to give grace to a world waiting to receive it whether they know it or not. When Jesus was around, He gave grace freely to the tax collectors such as Zacchaeus, to the prostitute such as Mary who washed his feet with perfume at the risk of being criticized as maniac or womanizer (in todays language), to a criminal such as Saul who became Paul, and to the backslidden such as Peter. We have been quicker to judge instead of giving love and grace, authentically and not for a show.

    I, for one, have experienced what its like to judge and be judged by churches, leaders and church workers who confess grace. If I who have been a Christian since my youth have been turned off by them, how much more those who arent.

    Yancey is urging Christians to practice what the Lord came for so that His glory may be manifested on earth and people will be drawn to Him. We are not to judge, we are to give grace. And by that, Yancey means the real grace, the authentic grace, the grace that the Lord Jesus Christ offers, not just the grace that one confesses with his mouth but far from the heart.

    Easier said than done, eh.

    But after reading this, I immediately thought of another book I read awhile back, How to Pick Up a Stripper and other Acts of Kindness, as a starting point in practicing grace in sometimes a hostile Christian world.

    Also, I would recommend that in addition to reading this book, you also listen to Pictures of Grace, podcast by Pastor William Graham Tullian Tchividjian (pronounced cha-vi-jin), who by the way is the wayward-turned-Pastor grandson of Billy Graham.
