Quick Overview:

Philip Yancey believes we are missing the supernatural hidden in everyday life. In A Skeptic’s Guide to Faith, previously titled Rumors of Another World, Yancey investigates the natural world and discovers 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.

What on earth are you missing? In A Skeptic’s Guide to Faith, previously titled Rumors of Another World, Philip Yancey writes: “I am where you are . . . an ordinary person trying to figure things out. I love, I experience beauty and pain, my friends die, I weep, I live. And as I live I try to figure out if there is a God, and what difference would that make . . . This book comes out of my own search and is written on behalf of those who live outside of belief---that borderlands region between belief and unbelief.” How many times have you heard someone say, “I’m spiritual but not religious?” Or perhaps you’ve had that thought yourself. For some people, religious faith seems to come easily, but for others it comes in a swirl of doubts and questions. In A Skeptic’s Guide to Faith, Philip Yancey confronts the questions head-on, from the stance of a skeptic. He asks, “Is the visible world around us all there is?” and then examines the apparent contradictions. If this is God’s world, why doesn’t it look more like it? Finally, the book considers how two worlds---the visible and invisible---might affect our daily lives. Does faith really make a difference day to day? A Skeptic’s Guide to Faith reads like a conversation, inviting those skeptical of religion and turned off by the church to consider the possibility of an unseen world coexisting with our visible world. According to Yancey, “A thin membrane of belief separates the natural from the supernatural.” What makes it so hard for some of us to cross that membrane? Look inside to find out.
