Summary

What on earth are we missing? Philip Yancey believes we are missing the supernatural hidden in everyday life.

In Rumors of Another World, Yancey investigates the natural world and discovers the supernatural hiding in plain view. He grapples with why God made the world and what our role truly is, and seeks to answer the question, "How do I live in the natural world while expressing the values of the supernatural?"

Yancey invites listeners to join him on a journey of discovery. He challenges us to tune into "rumors of another world," and connect the seen with the unseen. He promises that the grace-filled result will be a life of beauty, purpose, freedom, and faith.

Walk with Philip through the borderlands of belief, a place between doubt and faith, and see if you don't find a hopeful new perspective for your life.

Explains a lot

So many things that hadn't made sense - Yancey just gives the right explanation and illustrates with the most appropriate metaphors.
I want all my agnostic and militant agnostic friends to read this. And my faithful friends - I learnt so much I think you will too. I learnt with my heart so it's now part of me. This isn't an academic discussion it is an excellent book
