Vanishing Grace
Philip Yancey
Vanishing Grace by Philip Yancey answers the question that perplexes so many Christians today: Whatever happened to the good news of the Gospel, and why is the world so reluctant to accept its offer of grace for all?

In a world where the Church and Christians are accused of intolerant and fundamentalist attitudes, lifelong pilgrim and spiritual explorer, Philip Yancey, faces up to these criticisms - fair and unfair, with all the compassion and honesty that made his landmark ‘What's So Amazing about Grace?’ a bestseller for Christians of every tradition and denomination.

If the Church stirs up such negative feelings, he asks, just what is the good news we’re supposed to giving to the world? Yet even as UK Christianity continues to decline, and fewer people seem willing to identify with traditional forms of Christian worship, indicators show that interest in spirituality is rising.

So why is this, and how can we as Christians show that the gospel of grace is the answer?

To solve this apparent contradiction and meet a modern need, Philip Yancey is constant as ever in his belief that grace is the essence of the Christian faith. In Vanishing Grace he proves that only grace, offered freely and unreservedly, can satisfy.

Philip Yancey invites you to take a close look at what the gospel’s good news really says and reignites your desire to respond with grace-filled thoughts, words and actions toward people inside and outside the church. Both, he insists, are still thirsty for grace.

Proposing that this is exactly what the Church needs to recover and thrive, he shows how all Christians can offer grace in a way that is irresistible to a struggling society and demonstrates how we can apply grace to make a difference in a world of life-consuming need.

Vanishing Grace: Whatever Happened to the Good News is the signpost book for all who strive to make sense of their faith and live it out against the flow of our times. Never shrinking from the harshness of the truth, Philip uses his journalist’s skill to investigate how Christians might even have unwittingly contributed to the hostility against themselves.

Now he leads you toward a grace filled response to a graceless world. Instead of presenting a religion that comes across as doctrinaire and judgemental, Yancey provides you with inspirational stories of faith, hope, love and of course grace, all expressed in tones that will disarm even your most cynical critics.
