What Good is God? by Philip Yancey

I am a fan of Philip precisely because he is willing to ask the hard questions; he asks the questions that I so often find running through my own mind. In his latest work, Yancey poses the question "What Good is God?" He then seeks the answer through reviewing a wide sample of trips he has taken in the past few years. His eclectic gathering of stories from such a wide variety of places lends credo to the answer to the question. From prostitutes to college students, to South Africans, addicts and other populations, his interview style and his openness about his own doubts and assurances about God give the reader much to think about. Thank you, Mr. Yancey, for once again being transparent with your own soul, so that your readers are more apt to be transparent with their souls before God.
