Book of the Week: What Good is God?

by Philip Yancey.

Speaker, journalist and bestselling author, Philip Yancey has travelled the world tackling the most challenging questions:

Can God truly bring solace to the terrorised people of Mumbai, or the students who witnessed the murder of their classmates?

Will the deep scars of racism ever heal in post-apartheid South Africa, or the American South?

Can a persecuted Christian minority have any impact in places as hostile as China or the Middle East?

For each of his ten destinations, What God is God? shares Philip's inspiring words of encouragement and reveals the compelling story behind every speaking engagement.

Whether he's addressing alcoholics or Bible college students, sex workers or C. S. Lewis enthusiasts, Yancey's experiences of redemption, hope and grace provide evidence that when we are severely tested, faith really does matter.

Book of the Week: Destination Moon

The eighth man to walk on the moon took the entire Bible seriously because he took its Author seriously. He rejoiced in the Genesis account of origins. He believed that God created the world in six, twenty-four-hour days. That man was Col. James Irwin, the lunar vehicle commander for Apollo 15. Destination: Moon recounts his amazing physical and spiritual journey to the moon. With spectacular photos and “you are there” text, you will experience what it’s like to train for four years as an astronaut. You will feel the emotions of lift-off, see Earth from space, and explore the moon. As amazing as his accomplishment was, Astronaut Irwin viewed it as insignificant compared to the accomplishments of the Creator.

Col. Irwin spent the rest of his life sharing this message: “Jesus walking on Earth is more important than man walking on the moon.” His legacy of faith and discovery is an inspiration even now, thirty years after he landed on the moon. Visually stunning. By Astronaut James Irwin.
