More About the Author

Author of CBC Book of the Year 2007 - PRAYER - Philip Yancey is one of the most popular and acclaimed religious writers of our day. His searching and refreshingly honest books, which include FINDING GOD IN UNEXPECTED PLACES, SOUL SURVIVOR and PRAYER have encouraged and inspired millions of people around the world.
With a background in journalism, Philip admits that he prefers to ask the questions instead of answer them. This has led him through a path of re-discovering his faith and sharing that, publicly through his writing, in some of the most heart-felt and tried ways imaginable. A true wordsmith, a curator of language, Philip tackles difficult issues with an approach of 'this is what I've wrestled with and how I got through it so perhaps you might find it helpful too' makes his reading incredibly engaging.
Philip admits that he lost his faith in a racist church and made a living out of being a doubter and sceptic. After he came back to his faith, he wrote books about his journey by 'circling the edges' of common issues and eventually moving on to topics like Jesus, grace and most recently prayer. Billy Graham has said that there is no one in the evangelical world whom he admires more.

The best conversations are those that stimulate you to think along new lines and this is what Yancey does in this book.Forget the boring official commentaries and news reports of the time and be challenged by a new insight on people and events that have shaped 'us' as a society.Looking at situations from this spiritual standpoint will excite you.God is always amazing and Yancey helps us to see that in the most dire of circumstances He was there in unexpected places. A heartening and challenging book.In the future,in both personal and world situations, will you accept the challenge to find God in unexpected places? Perhaps then a whole chain of new thinking will produce amazing results!

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Random Reader on 21 Jun. 2008
Format: Paperback
I had heard that Yancey was an insightful writer who would not be satisfied with glib responses to difficult questions - the type of responses that never stand up in the debate of conversation, only in the unopposed form of the printed word. However in general I was disappointed with this book. I found it superficial, bordering on embarrassing, in it's dealing in three or four pages of anecdotes with, for example, science, the Muslim faith, health, and so on. I realise it is meant to be a book of short cameos to stimulate reflection but there is simply too little substance to challenge ones thinking. Nevertheless Yancey does shine in places, for example when recounting the role of Christians in the overthrow of communism- here he seems to write with more power and conviction, in less sugary fashion. The description of the growing movement of churches in Leipzig is a powerful testimony. Overall however this is a book that will feed the believers, but not convince the searching.

I enjoyed reading the book. It's one of those books that you can't put down, no matter what happens. I would recommend it to anyone.
