“There is no writer in the evangelical world that I admire and appreciate more.” -- Billy Graham

From the Back Cover

''There is no writer in the evangelical world that I admire and appreciate more.' - Billy Graham Philip Yancey's words---captured in his many bestselling books---have influenced the lives of millions of readers by strengthening their faith, building their hope, sparking their creativity, and challenging their comfort zones. If you're one of those readers, you know personally how his insights have affected your mind and heart. And if you're new to Yancey, you're in for a life-altering experience. These meditations---all drawn from the beloved and bestselling writings of the author---will take you through an entire year of Yancey's insight and imagination, covering a broad range of topics: * How to rediscover God through the wonders of nature, music, and romantic love * Why grace means you can't do anything to make God love you more or less * What happens when you cut through preconceptions to encounter the 'real' Jesus * How to renew your understanding and practice of prayer * Where you can see God in unexpected people and places * How to cope when life crashes in around you Every day, experience the best from a beloved author who, with freshness, clarity, and energy, has so brilliantly articulated God's wonderful but mysterious relationship with you.

Philip Yancey's introspective, wise writing has been both a mirror and a pair of binoculars in my life. The reflective nature of his work has forced me to take a good look at myself in Disappointment With God; the binocular view of the struggles of others in Pain: The Gift Nobody Wants. But the truth is that most all of his beautifully-crafted writing is both mirror and binoculars. I've been a fan since his days writing for Campus Life magazine in the 1970's.

Grace Notes: Daily Readings With A Fellow Pilgrim (Zondervan) offers up 366 daily one-page readings from Yancey's prolific career (so far). The readings center on themes like faith, prayer, forgiveness, suffering, church and grace, and are arranged will sensitivity to the days and seasons of the year. For example, the September 11 and 12 entries both offer reflections on the grace Yancey discovered at New York's Ground Zero in 2001.

The simple volume would make a perfect gift for a Yancey fan or a friend who values the kind of thought-provoking, soul-surprising writing that is both mirror and binoculars.

A spoonful of Philip Yancey for everyday! If you're as fond of his writing as I am, you'll appreciate this book of daily readings.

Each reading is one to two pages taken from some of his best work such as Disappointment with God; Finding God in Unexpected Places; I Was Just Wondering; Rumors of Another World; The Jesus I Never Knew (my personal fave); and The Bible Jesus Read (highly recommended.) There are also a few writings from his road trips and a few excerpts from his Christianity Today articles.

If you're a Philip Yancey fan, as I am, you'll want to read this book often.

For instance, from the December 14th reading: "Although I cannot learn from him why a particular bad thing occurs, I can learn how God feels about it. Jesus gives God a face, and that face is streaked with tears. " PY

Philip Yancey seems humble, but he also seems like he's super smart. This book would be a nice gift for that intellectual friend who has everything he or she needs; that person who throws around words like "hubris" and knows all the names of the characters in Homer books, but is still sitting on the fence when it comes to faith. You know...that person

Philip Yancey's writings both encourage and challenge me. The insights and observations he offers in his work bear witness of his contemplative walk with God. It is for this reason that I anticipated reading his new devotional Grace Notes: Daily Readings with a Fellow Pilgrim.

In this 366 day devotional, he includes key sections from previous works such as The Jesus I Never Knew, What's So Amazing about Grace?, and Where is God When It Hurts?, as well as many of his other writings.

The form of this devotional is quite different from most. The majority of devotionals I've read take the form first of a select scripture, then perhaps a related quote, a short grouping of text to illuminate the scripture and sometimes a prayer.

In Grace Notes: Daily Readings with a Fellow Pilgrim, scripture is mentioned and referenced in the text but not listed separately at the beginning or ending of the devotion for that day. It is a different approach to devotional reading and brings a more conversational tone to the book.

So many areas of Christianity are covered in this devotional which makes it one to keep and return to year after year. If you are new to the writings of Philip Yancey, a descriptive bibliography is included referencing many of his books and articles.

If asked which one of Philip Yancey's books was my favorite, I would be hard pressed to give only one. Yancey is thoughtful and provocative, engaging and inspiring, and always sincere and genuine. This makes this devotional rare indeed.

Consider the following concepts:

* From June 1st, entitled 'Atrocious Mathematics' - "I hear a loud whisper from the gospels that tells me that I did not get what I deserved. I deserved punishment but I got forgiveness.

Once I opened my copy of Grace Notes by Philip Yancy, I was unable to put it back down on the coffee table! It's beautifully written and inspiring to read, as I found myself traveling on a journey with the author, page by page. Each page opens my eyes and awareness to something I'm not normally exposed to. In the devotional, I saw the faces of those inside and outside prison walls. I visited the largest church in Tokyo, read about life in Chicago or life in Colorado, all through the eyes of a fellow Pilgrim, as Yancy titles himself. What appealed to me most in the devotionals is the authors sincerity and openness to share his life experiences with others. He's transparent and authentic and real- and shares a journey of faith. While the book does not quote a scripture verse on each page, it does give us a center thought and focus for the day. Recommended as a gift for someone with a sense of adventure, someone who enjoys travel or history, and someone who is a Philip Yancey fan. Not recommended for someone who prefers more scripture and biblical content in a devotional. I'm giving a copy of this book to both my husband and my father for Christmas gifts.
