Overview
"How Thirteen Unlikely Mentors Helped My Faith Survive the Church"

Philip Yancey, one of America's leading Christian thinkers and author of more than a dozen books with sales of more than five million copies, returns for his most profound and soul-searching books yet. Soul Survivor is the story of his own struggle to reclaim his belief, interwoven with inspiring portraits of notable people from all walks of life who have succeeded in the pursuit of an authentic faith.

"I became a writer, I now believe, to sort out and reclaim words used and misused by the Christians of my youth," says Philip Yancey, whose explorations of Christian faith have made him a guide for millions of readers. In Soul Survivor, he charts his spiritual pilgrimage through the influence of key individuals: "These are the people who ushered me into the Kingdom. In many ways, they are why I remain a Christian today, and I want to introduce them to other spiritual seekers."

Yancey interweaves his own journey with fascinating stories of those who modeled for him a life-enhancing rather than a life-constricting faith: Dr. Paul Brand, G. K. Chesterton, Annie Dillard, Frederick Buechner, C. Everett Koop, Leo Tolstoy, Fyodor Dostoevsky, Henri Nouwen, John Donne, Mahatma Gandi, Shusaku Endo, Martin Luther King, Jr., Robert COles.

Readers will find these inspiring portraits both nurture and challenge for their own understanding of authentic faith. Yancey fans will devour these new glimpses of how he has held onto faith while acknowledging with utter honesty its inherent difficulties. New Yancey readers will be drawn in by the theme of faith versus religion and drawn along a compelling narrative of signposts on a spiritual journey.

Soul Survivor offers illuminating and critically important insights into true Christianity, which will enrich the lives of veteran believers and cautious seekers alike.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Soul Survivor by Philip Yancey  Nov 16, 2008
My favorite subject to write about is people. Of those people, the ones I want you to know about most are those that have helped me grow spiritually, helped me grow closer to God, or helped me point others to God more effectively.

Philip Yancey, in many of his books is truthful enough to write about a time early in his adult life when he wrestled with his faith. The faith tradition he grew up seemed hypocritical, irrelevant, graceless, and out-of-touch. It just didn't make sense to him to continue to identify himself with Christians. There were none around him that could validate true faith in Christ.

Yancey points out that during great crisis, two questions haunt people:

* "Who am I?"
* "Who do I want to be?"

In Soul Survivor, Yancey shares how thirteen unlikely mentors helped answer these questions for himself. As he tells the story of how his faith was rescued, I found myself asking the same two questions and then identifying both with Yancey and the characters he writes about.

As always, Yancey, provokes thinking outside the boundaries of popular, party-line Christian thinking. And Yancey makes me feel like God actually loves me and tolerates me for who I am, not who I think I need to be for Him (or anybody else).
 
Soul Survivor  Oct 19, 2008
Philip Yancey is convincing in conveying the influence of the 13 people who caused changes in his thinking. He is very honest in describing how the religious upbringing of his childhood turned him away from faith and the church. These 13 people helped him to regain his faith.
 
Still In the Wilderness  Aug 14, 2008
Yancey, sadly, is not out of the woods yet. He has stopped short of true Christianity and has adopted a heretical form of it. His book portrays the gospel as God making ridiculously impossible demands upon humanity. When they strive tirelessly to measure up, the good people admit to being miserable failures. The bad people also fail but won't admit it and become hypocrites. God pours his greasy grace over the whole mess, forgives them all and bids them keep on uselessly trying. Yancey evidently knows knows nothing about God's supernatural power working within us, producing His divine life and righteousness in us. Yancey is on the way but hasn't arrived yet.
 
Excellent Read for Searching Souls  Apr 21, 2008
Although it was subtle, this book is a balm for those who have been rubbed raw by the church. And through several mentors, Philip Yancey gives us his testimony of how he survived his struggles with the issue of the church. Some people are familiar characters and others I was meeting for the first time, but the book was entralling all the same. I added many books and authors to my wish list as a result of this book and I will definitely read many more by Yancey himself.
 
Good for the Soul...  Mar 11, 2008
This book validated so many feelings I had about Christianity.

It is an inspiring witness as to why it is so vital for Christians not to judge others. We are all imperfect.

Read it.
