Philip Yancey –- Rumors of Another World: What on Earth are We Missing?
Philip Yancey believes we are missing the supernatural hidden in everyday life. In this 2004 Christianity Today Book Award of Merit winner he 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. He promises that the grace-filled result will be a life of beauty, purpose, freedom, and faith.
So much of Christian apologetics assumes the reality of something beyond the material world, ignoring the fact that many people in Western culture don’t take that as a given at all. Yancey takes a step back to take a step forward, making a thoughtful and ultimately inspiring case for the existence of a supernatural dimension in, under and above all things.
