Product 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.

"Why does the church stir up such negative feelings?" Philip Yancey has been asking this all his life as a journalist. His perennial question is more relevant now than ever: in a twenty-year span starting in the mid-nineties, research shows that favorable opinions of Christianity have plummeted drastically—and opinions of Evangelicals have taken even deeper dives.

Yancey explores what may have contributed to hostility toward Evangelicals, especially in their mixing of faith and politics instead of embracing more grace-filled ways of presenting the gospel. He offers illuminating stories of how faith can be expressed in ways that disarm even the most cynical critics. Then he explores what is Good News and what is worth preserving in a culture that thinks it has rejected Christian faith.

    Phil Yancy broke my heart. Obviously he's been deeply hurt by conservative Christians, and strikes back at them in this unbalanced postmodern book. The premise is absurd--God's grace can no more be vanishing than gravity can. The truth is, this book is not a search for grace, but a retribution by a wounded soul. Yancy too much enjoys spanking evangelicals who fall short of his standards. There is no love, joy or peace in this book. Instead, Yancy takes on the role of a pharisee, helping God judge those who are less righteous than he. It's Yancy himself who becomes the classic tragic figure with the fateful flaw.

    Disappointed as the book only enhances the study guide and DVD. We bought them to use as a group study and find that there is no correlation between it and the study guide and DVD. Thus now ordered the study guides for each group member instead. Would have been helpful to know this before ordering the books and having to return them for those who no longer want them.

    This is my second book with Phil Yancey. I first read his The Jesus I Never Knew several years ago and I was impressed with his real effort to dig into the Scriptures. I told myself I would be interested in following up with this writer and so when Vanishing Grace was offered I went for it. And I wasn't disappointed. Yancey laments what he sees as a trend amongst certain Christians to speak and act in a less than graceful manner. Clearly keeping in mind the admonition in the Gospel of John that it must be of the grace to be of Jesus he calls out those who have forgotten this most important point. Not content to criticize he points to those Christians who are in every way a positive example of gracefulness. Again he is not content with the superficial but digs deep to make his point. I just pray that those for whom this book is meant for read it.

    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.
