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 ten 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 Philip's 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.

Editorial Reviews

"I love Philip Yancey's work. He is a brilliant, graceful writer."
Anne Lamott
"There is no writer in the evangelical world that I admire and appreciate more."
Billy Graham
"Philip Yancey is a much respected and treasured colleague whose gift for speaking candidly, faithfully, and pastorally all at one and the same time is a constant model for those of us who work in the field of religion writing. Even more to the point, it is a benison for thousands of his readers and, thereby, for the Christian world in general."
Phyllis Tickle, author and lecturer
"Philip Yancey is one of my favorite writers. His observations on religion and how it fits into modern life leave me looking at faith in a new light."
Rosalynn Carter
"Out of all the spiritual writers flooding the marketplace, Philip Yancey has been - for me - a unique beacon of both brutally honest and warmly compassionate insight. There are many writers who emphasize one or the other but no one who so capably offers both in almost every sentence."
Dr. Tim Johnson, Senior Medical Contributor, ABC News
"There are very few authors writing today that I drop everything to pay attention to; Philip Yancey is one of them, and I am glad I have WHAT GOOD IS GOD? and many other of his books to stop, ponder, and pray through to grow in grace."
Makoto Fujimura, artist and author
"Yancey continues the thoughtful examination of the challenges of authentic faith for which he is known...Reflecting on his experiences and sharing some of the messages from his speeches, he notes that 'we are not designed to bear pain alone' and how desperate situations provide an opportunity for believers to model Christ."
