*More About This Episode*
About Philip Yancey: For Philip Yancey, writing is a way to explore faith. He explains: “At times we ask questions like ‘Where is God when it hurts?’ or ‘Does prayer make any difference?’ As a freelance writer, I feel privileged to explore such questions full time.”
True to his calling, Yancey wrestles in print with God, with the Church, and with fellow believers. In the process he has authored over two dozen books, including the bestsellers What’s So Amazing About Grace and The Jesus I Never Knew. In all, his books have sold more than 17 million copies in English and have been translated into some 50 languages worldwide.
After surviving a church background of what he now calls “toxic faith,” Yancey ultimately came to know a God of grace and beauty. His recently published memoir, Where the Light Fell, tells that complete story for the first time.
Philip Yancey and his wife live in the foothills of Colorado, where they enjoy mountain climbing, skiing, wildlife, and many other pleasures of the Rocky Mountains.
