Read full description of the books:
If you are one of those deprived Christians whose exposure to the Old Testament is severely limited, then this book is a must-read. Likewise if all of your OT knowledge involves an angry God looking for reasons to blast people or damn them for eternity. If, however, you grew up getting a healthy dose of Old Testament accompanied by interpretation that realized that "God So Loved the World" even back before Jesus, then... well, Yancey writes well.
Yancey's book is readable and even entertaining. His insights are nothing new to any of us NOT raised to see the OT God as a sort of vengeful boogie-man. Sadly, for many folks, this will not be the case. It seems that most Christians of my generation shun the OT, either because they've had bad teaching and preaching focused on that negative view of God or because they've heard that's all the OT has to offer. Yancey does a good job introducing the wonders of the OT to that cohort and, indeed, comes up with some nice common-sense approaches that almost any preacher can find use for.
Glad I read it. May pick it up again to look for sermon illustrations but otherwise unlikely to turn to it in the future.

Read information about the authorA native of Atlanta, Georgia, Philip Yancey earned graduate degrees in Communications and English from Wheaton College Graduate School and the University of Chicago. He joined the staff of Campus Life Magazine in 1971, and worked there as Editor and then Publisher. He looks on those years with gratitude, because teenagers are demanding readers, and writing for them taught him a lasting principle: The reader is in control!
In 1978 Philip Yancey became a full-time writer, initially working as a journalist for such varied publications as Reader’s Digest, Publisher’s Weekly, National Wildlife, Christian Century and The Reformed Journal. For many years he wrote a monthly column for Christianity Today magazine, which he still serves as Editor at Large.
His twenty books include Where Is God When It Hurts, The Student Bible, and Disappointment with God. These books have won thirteen Gold Medallion Awards from the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association and have sold more than fifteen million copies. (Fearfully and Wonderfully Made, In His Image, and The Gift of Pain were co-authored with Dr. Paul Brand.) Christian bookstore managers selected The Jesus I Never Knew as the 1996 Book of the Year, and What’s So Amazing About Grace? won the same award in 1998. His most recent books are Prayer: Does It Make Any Difference?, A Skeptic’s Guide to Faith, Reaching for the Invisible God, and Soul Survivor. In 2009 a daily reader compiled from all his books was published: Grace Notes.
The Yanceys lived in downtown Chicago for many years before moving to a very different environment in Colorado. They enjoy hiking, wildlife, and all the other delights of the Rocky Mountains.
