What Ever Happened to the Good News?
Like a sudden thaw in the middle of winter, grace happens at unexpected moments. It stops us short, catches the breath, disarms. Yet, not everyone has tasted that amazing grace, and not everyone believes in it.
In a time of division and discord, grace seems in vanishing supple. Why? And what can we do about it?
Philip Yancey’s What’s So Amazing About Grace? was an international best-seller that explored Christianity’s great distinctive – grace – ‘at street level’. Now Philip returns to this question, wondering what exactly the church has to offer a broken world, and asking why, to outsiders, Christians often seem to be bearers of bad, rather than good, news.
It doesn’t need to be this way, and Philip draws our attention to pilgrims, activists and artists as models for how to communicate the gospel message to a world that’s running away from it. Most of all, he suggests, Christians need to remind themselves of the good news that is at the heart of their faith.
This is a milestone book for all those who are striving to make sense of faith and live it out amid the changing landscape of our day.
