What Good Is God? by Philip Yancey

Evangelical writer Yancey explores the topic of the church’s relevance in modern society.  The book is divided into ten parts, each focusing on conditions in a place Yancey visited, followed by the text of a speech he gave.  Whether it’s the compassionate response to the victims of the Virginia Tech shooting, its need to move out of its bubble and transform the world around it, its ministry to recovering alcoholics and prostitutes, its extension of forgiveness to Afrikaners or its work in communist China, the church is actively working to spread the love of God to everyone in need.  Readers will finish the book encouraged about the condition of Christianity today.
