Summary
"'Why does the church stir up such negative feelings?' Philip Yancey has been asking this all his life as a journalist. His perennial question is more relevant now than ever: in a twenty-year span starting in the mid-nineties, research shows that favorable opinions of Christianity have plummeted drastically--and opinions of evangelicals have taken even deeper dives ... Yet while the opinions about Christianity are dropping, interest in spirituality is rising. Why the disconnect?"--Amazon.com
Summary
Explores what may have contributed to hostility toward Christians, especially Evangelicals, and offers stories of how faith can be expressed in ways that disarm even the most cynical critics
