"'Why does the church stir up such negative feelings?' Philip Yancey has been asking this all his life as a journalist. His perennial question is more relevant now than ever: in a twenty-year span starting in the mid-nineties, research shows that favorable opinions of Christianity have plummeted drastically--and opinions of evangelicals have taken even deeper dives ... Yet while the opinions about Christianity are dropping, interest in spirituality is rising. Why the disconnect?"--Amazon.com.
