In this important and compelling new audiobook, New York Times bestselling author Philip Yancey explores what may have contributed to hostility toward Christians, especially Evangelicals, and offers illuminating stories of how faith can be expressed in ways that disarm even the most cynical critics.
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. Research shows that favorable opinions of Christianity have plummeted drastically—and opinions of Evangelicals have taken even deeper dives.
So what’s so good about the Good News?
In his landmark audiobook, What’s So Amazing about Grace, Yancey issued a call for Christians to be as grace-filled in their behavior as they are in declaring their beliefs. He now aims this book at Christians again, showing them how they have lost respect, influence, and reputation in a newly post-Christian culture. Exploring 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—Yancey 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.
