Rumors of Another World: What on Earth Are We Missing

Product SKU: B726

In a work that is startling and original, Yancey (What’s So Amazing About Grace?; The Jesus I Never Knew) 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, he says, 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. (In a chapter that by itself is worth the price of admission, Yancey claims that our culture’s fascination with sex stems from the fact that sex is one of the only transcendent, mysterious experiences remaining in the contemporary West.) The quality of Yancey’s writing-and his thinking-are simply superb.
