Soul Survivor
(Souru Sabaibah)


Philip Yancey
How did Yancey manage to survive spiritually despite early encounters with a racist, legalistic church that he now views as almost cultic? In this, his most soul-searching book yet, he probes that very question. Not only telling the story of his own struggle to reclaim belief, Yancey also provides glimpses of the faith journeys of 13 notable people who've modeled for him a life-enhancing rather than a life-constricting faith. These inspiring examples range from the scatterbrained journalist G. K. Chesterton to the tortured novelists Tolstoy and Dostoevsky, to contemporaries such as Martin Luther King, Jr., Annie Dillard and Shusaku Endoh. B6*size, 512 pp.

Vanishing Grace

Vanishing Grace
(Kakusareta Megumi)


Philip Yancey
Christians need to be as grace-filled in their behavior as they are in declaring their beliefs. Yancey asks why Christians continue to lose respect, influence, and reputation in modern culture. He 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. Yet while the opinions about Christianity are dropping, interest in spirituality is rising. Why the disconnect? People everywhere still thirst for grace. 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. 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. B6* size, 464 pp.

Love Japan: Breath of Spring for Japan
new
Love Japan: Breath of Spring for Japan
(Love Japan: Haru no Ibuki, Nihon no Kuni e)


Philip Yancey
ract for distribution in northern Japan disaster areas in Love Japan Campaign. The word “compassion” means “suffering with, receiving suffering with.” Millions around the world felt suffering with the Japanese at news of the terrible catastrophes of March 11, 2011, and responded with help. C. S. Lewis says pain is God’s megaphone telling us “I am here with you, seek me.” Suffering makes us ask: “What do I love most? What have I accomplished so far? If I die what happens?” Jesus Christ is the only sure foundation to rely on for life. Suffering is the winter of life, but following winter comes the spring of hope and the summer of joy. Look for spring to surely come.

What Good is God?

Does what we believe about God really matter? Yancey travels the globe and uncovers faith and hope alive in the hearts of people in places of horror, disaster, and loss: Mumbai, India when the firing started during the terrorist attacks; China; South Africa; at the motel where Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated; on the Virginia Tech campus soon after the massacre; an AA convention; and a conference for former sex workers. Each of the ten stories offers firsthand evidence that faith in God does matter and works in real life, even when that belief is sorely tested in the lives of those who suffer.

Prayer: Does it Make Any Difference?
(Inori, Donna Imi ga Aru no ka?)


Philip Yancey
The author probes the depths of prayer, which is foundational to our relationship with God. He explores many of the questions surrounding prayer, that most of us wonder, but few know how to express: Is God listening? Why should God care about me? Why do so many prayers go unanswered? Why does God let the world go on as it does and not intervene? Does prayer really help with physical healing? Why does God seem sometimes close and sometimes far away? Does prayer change God or change me? How can I make prayer more satisfying?

Rumors of Another World: What on Earth Are We Missing?

Rumors of Another World: What on Earth Are We Missing?
(Mou Hitostu no Sekai kara no Sasayaki)


Philip Yancey
Yancey writes for people on the "borderlands" of Christian faith: those who may have been scarred by bad church experiences, or those who simply have more doubts and questions than they have faith. Most people perceive "rumors of another world" while inhabiting this one; they long for something more, and yearn for belief in God's transcendence. We substitute other things for God in order to fill this void. We are missing the supernatural hidden in everyday life. As we investigate the natural world, we discover the supernatural hiding in plain view. Nature and super nature are not two separate worlds, but different expressions of the same reality. To encounter the world as a whole, we need a more supernatural awareness of the natural world. The grace-filled result will be a life of beauty, purpose, freedom, and faith. There are three discussions: 1) The world we inhabit and what we're missing. What rumors of another world it might covey? He discusses the "sacramental" view of life (where natural and supernatural coexist in one world) on subjects as nature, every day life, and sex (a must read chapter). 2) The apparent contradictions: why doesn't this world look like God's world? Bright analyses of sin (as a backhand proof of God's existence) and of guilt (as a gift from God). 3) The interaction of both natural and supernatural worlds: the meaning for our lives, how to practice that existence of God in a modern world (money, death, moral failures, among others).
