THE CHANGING FACE OF CHURCH a continuing feature
A Church less rigid
Salvation from "toxic religion" is Philip Yancey's story in the making.
He's a religion writer who is clear about his goals. "What I want to do, as a Christian author," Philip Yancey told me in a recent interview, "is to express the good news-ness of the gospel.
"So very often, the church conveys bad news. News of judgment, or anger, or division. And when it does that—when it sounds like bad news—that's not the gospel that Jesus brought. He brought a gospel of good news. And I'm just trying to polish and display that good news for as many people as possible."
Few religion writers have observed and recorded the changing face of church in the world today more eloquently than Yancey. He is the author of 16 books that have sold over 5,000,000 copies, and he is an editor-at-large at Christianity Today, for whom he writes a column every other issue.
