Summary
"How did Yancey manage to survive spiritually despite early encounters with a racist, legalistic church that he now views as almost cultic? In this, his most soul-searching book yet, he probes that very question. He tells the story of his own struggle to reclaim belief, interwoven with inspiring portraits of notable people from all walks of life, whom he calls his spiritual directors. Soul Survivor is his tribute to thirteen remarkable individuals, mentors who transformed his life and work"--Publisher website (November 2006)
Summary
The author recounts the story of his own struggle to reclaim and reaffirm his faith, interweaving his own journey with inspiring portraits of notable Christians who have been his spiritual mentors, including Dr. Paul Brand, C. Everett Koop, Leo Tolstoy, Henri Nouwen, and Martin Luther King, Jr
