Disillusioned by the distortions and hypocrisies of the church in which he grew up, Philip Yancey set out in search of a life enhanced by faith instead of diminished by religion. Having struggled to forge personal convictions about God amid the ironies of life and the incongruities of religion, he looks closer at those whose lives radiate spiritual authenticity rather than pious posturing.From Dostoevsky to Martin Luther King, G. K. Chesterton to Paul Brand, Yancey pays homage to some of the most remarkable, selfless, Christ-like lives our world has known, and asks what both he and we can do to find such beautiful faith in our own lives.

Reviews

I would love to tell the world about this book. A book about people and their lives, knowing the Lord. Philip Yancey is very honest about himself, the church he grew up with and his determination to find out how other people live.Who cannot be inspired to reach out to others after reading about Dr Paul Brand? What an amazing, skilled, gifted, humble, kind person he was. So many people were touched by his life. I can't wait to read the books written by Dr Brand and Philip Yancey. -- Pam Teal * Woman Alive * A book about people and their lives, knowing the Lord.
