I liked this personalized and down-to-earth approach of one layman talking to another. (One is reminded of C.S. Lewis's REFLECTIONS ON THE PSALMS where Lewis says he is not presuming to instruct, he is merely comparing notes, like two school boys talking shop and helping each other over difficulties their schoolmaster has long forgotten about.) I enjoyed Eugene Peterson's Foreword too. This easily readable book (only 100 pages long) is good for personal reading as well as group discussion.
I understand where Philip Yancey is coming from in terms of when the unfairness of life gets in the way and prevents you from being nourished in church. But that is the time when you need the church community to support you rather than expect you to live up to the expectation of membership. It would be unfair to say that there is no sensitivity in church, but it does seem at times that sensitivity overlooks you and chooses someone else. It is at this point when you see everyone else blessed but not yourself that you ask the question 'why bother with church?' This 100-page book failed to provide an adequate answer.
