Philip Yancey

The Latest from Philip

The future of Christianity depends on how we master the art of understanding and giving grace.

At the end of the twentieth century, Philip Yancey wrote his classic bestseller What's So Amazing About Grace? as a testament to the power of God's grace and as a rallying cry to the Christian church to see the acting out of grace as its single most important contribution to the world.

Now, in this video Bible study, Yancey reexamines—with fresh material and new stories—the scandalous power of grace so that groups and individuals can reflect upon, share, and extend this amazing gift of Christ in new and transformative ways.

In this study, you'll discover:

  • The extent of God's love and what it means for us.
  • Why the church seems to have lost the gift of grace-giving and why the world apart from the church can't offer it at all.
  • What it would look like for us to truly understand, receive, and give the gift that God gives so generously to us.

Vanishing Grace: Whatever Happened to the Good News?

In a time of division and discord, Christians have come to be seen not as bearers of good news and love but of judgement and intolerance. How did we get here? And what can we do about it?

In the Vanishing Grace Bible study, Philip Yancey suggests practical ways in which we can live as salt and light within a society that is radically changing.

Yancey tackles challenging and timely questions and offers a discerning look at what contributes to the rising hostility toward Christians—acknowledging the ways that Christians themselves have contributed to this hostility and exploring how we can respond with both grace and truth.

In the wake of recent events and cultural shifts, people both inside and outside the church are thirsty for grace. Vanishing Grace calls us to see their thirst, and ours, in a hopeful new light as we listen, love, and offer a grace that is truly good news

What is prayer? How does it work? And more importantly, does it work?

In theory, prayer is the essential human act, a priceless point of contact between us and the God of the universe. In practice, prayer is often frustrating, confusing, and fraught with mystery. Prayer: Does It Make Any Difference? is an exploration of the mysterious intersection where God and humans meet and relate. In this six-session small group Bible study, award-winning author Philip Yancey probes the very heartbeat—the most fundamental, challenging, perplexing, and deeply rewarding aspect—of our relationship with God: prayer.
