Philip Yancey



Last night I went with my friend D to hear Philip Yancey speak. Way cool. And he actually had his new book there - selling and autographing copies before it's general release. (Oct 1st according to Amazon.) I didn't have the time or energy to stand in line and wait tho. Anyway, his new book is about the very thing I have been wresting with since last spring:
Prayer: Does It Make Any Difference?
Time constraints kept him from going into any great depth last night He just scratched the surface. But it was enough to make me want to read the book to see what his thoughts are on the complex issues and questions concerning prayer.
I would love to hear him speak again sometime when time isn't pressing......

Yep, he's the man. Too bad he's got a face for radio. I guess it suits an author though!

Sounds like his next book is another must read.

Hi Karedy... Philip Yancey is just about the only living theologian I adore with all my heart. I'll have to see about his new book...

How are you, pal? xo

yep, I know. He's great. I went despite the fact that my ear infection is really wearing me out. I worked all day that day, went home, got the kids dinner and headed out. I wasn't missing it for anything. But I was one tired momma.....
