Product Description

In his landmark book What's So Amazing about Grace?, Philip Yancey issued a call for Christians to be as grace-filled in their behavior as they are in declaring their beliefs. He now returns to this vital subject, asking why Christians continue to lose respect, influence, and reputation in modern culture.

Yet people everywhere still thirst for grace. How can Christians present truly Good News amid the changing landscapes of our time? Why do so many people dislike Christians? How can we communicate faith in an appealing way to future generations?

Using his trademark journalistic style--story-filled, compelling, accessible--Yancey explores how grace can bridge the gap between Christian faith and a world increasingly suspicious of it.

Publisher's Description

"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: in a twenty-year span starting in the mid-nineties, research shows that favorable opinions of Christianity have plummeted drastically—and opinions of Evangelicals have taken even deeper dives.

The end of the politics-oriented Evangelicalism that was so dominant in the second half of the 20th century is a strong example that we are living in a post-Christian culture.

Yet while the opinions about Christianity are dropping, interest in spirituality is rising. Why the disconnect? Why are so many asking, "What’s so good about the "Good News?"

Yancey’s writing has focused on the search for honest faith that makes a difference for a world in pain. In his landmark book What’s So Amazing about Grace he issued a call for Christians to be as grace-filled in their behavior as they are in declaring their beliefs.

But people inside and outside the church are still thirsty for grace. What the church lacked in its heyday is now exactly what it needs to recover to thrive. Grace can bring together Christianity and our post-Christian culture, inviting outsiders as well as insiders to take a deep second look at why our faith matters and about what could reignite its appeal to future generations.

How can Christians offer grace in a way that is compelling to a jaded society? And how can they make a difference in a world that cries out in need?

Yancey aims this book at Christian readers, showing  them how Christians have lost respect, influence, and reputation in a newly post-Christian culture. "Why do they hate us so much?" mystified Americans ask about the rest of the world.  A similar question applies to evangelicals in America.

Yancey explores 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.  He 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.

    This is my second book with Phil Yancey. I first read his The Jesus I Never Knew several years ago and I was impressed with his real effort to dig into the Scriptures. I told myself I would be interested in following up with this writer and so when Vanishing Grace was offered I went for it. And I wasn't disappointed. Yancey laments what he sees as a trend amongst certain Christians to speak and act in a less than graceful manner. Clearly keeping in mind the admonition in the Gospel of John that it must be of the grace to be of Jesus he calls out those who have forgotten this most important point. Not content to criticize he points to those Christians who are in every way a positive example of gracefulness. Again he is not content with the superficial but digs deep to make his point. I just pray that those for whom this book is meant for read it.

    While the author makes a good overall point, I found that it was a bit "all over the place" and wandering (perhaps an attempt to stretch the point to a certain number of print pages?!) Toward the end I found myself skimming, as I felt I was not going to get anything more out of the book.

    Vanishing Grace: Whatever Happened to the Good News?
    January 11, 2015
    Philip
    Once again Philip Yancey has sounded out a clarion call to the Church to return to her first (and only) love. He addresses the issue of the centrality of grace, much as he did in his first book on the center of the Christian life, with candor, truth, intelligence and, of course, grace. Sounding warnings against the empty idols of affluence, legalism and the noxious culture wars, this is a call we must heed if we are to regain our Biblical identity and restore faithfulness to Christ as our chief end. Very well done.
