Does Faith really matter when you are struggling with an addiction, when you get laid off from your job, when your home is in foreclosure?
In his latest book What Good is God? Philip Yancey asks just that question, ultimately proving that to most of us it really matters! Giving excellent examples of how Faith works in our lives, he describes ten memorable events whose aftermath he personally attended throughout the world.
As the book unfolds, he gives us the story behind the story with events taking place from the US with the heartbreaking tragedy of Virginia Tech to the underground Church of China.
With each story Philip Yancey gives us a glimpse of true Faith as he interviews Students, Pastors, Alcoholics as well as Prostitutes from all over the world thus recording amazing details of love and compassion amongst survivors and participants of world shattering events!
This is truly an interesting book, emotional at times as well as factual and I give it 4 stars.
