In this episode’s conversation, Philip Yancey and Language of God host, Jim Stump, discuss rediscovering faith after messy first encounters, disappointment with the state of the world, and stepping into a life colored with hope.
Philip Yancey is one of the most compelling and popular Christian authors of our time. But faith has not always been easy for him—growing up in Atlanta included absorbing the confidently racist doctrine his childhood pastor distributed from the pulpit. He is not free from the pangs of doubt and disappointment today, but he gathers courage from the selfless love played out in people like Dr. Paul Brand, a medical doctor who dedicated his life to treating leprosy.
