In 1987, an IRA bomb buried Gordon Wilson and his twenty-year-old daughter beneath five feet of rubble. Gordon alone survived. And forgave. He said of the bombers, " I have lost my daughter, but I bear no grudge . . . I shall pray, tonight and every night, that God will forgive them." His words caught the media's ears -- and out of one man's grief, the world got a glimpse of grace. Grace is the church's great distinctive. It's the one thing the world cannot duplicate, and the one thing it craves above all else -- for only grace can bring hope and transformation to a jaded world. In What's So Amazing About Grace? award-winning author Philip Yancey explores grace at street level. If grace is God's love for the undeserving, he asks, then what does it look like in action? And if Christians are its sole dispensers, then how are we doing at lavishing grace on a world that knows far more of cruelty and unforgiveness than it does of mercy? Yancey sets grace in the midst of life's stark images, tests its mettle against horrific "ungrace." Can grace survive in the midst of such atrocities as the Nazi holocaust? Can it triumph over the brutality of the Ku Klux Klan? Should any grace at all be shown to the likes of Jeffrey Dahmer, who killed and cannibalized seventeen young men? Grace does not excuse sin, says Yancey, but it treasures the sinner. True grace is shocking, scandalous. It shakes our conventions with its insistence on getting close to sinners and touching them with mercy and hope. It forgives the unfaithful spouse, the racist, the child abuser. It loves today's AIDS-ridden addict as much as the tax collector of Jesus' day. In his most personal and provocative book ever, Yancey offers compelling, true portraits of grace's life-changing power. He searches for its presence in his own life and in the church. He asks, How can Christians contend graciously with moral issues that threaten all they hold dear? And he challenges us to become living answers to a world that desperately wants to know, What's So Amazing About Grace?… (altro)

著名作家楊腓力用十三篇精彩地人物素描,在本書中活畫出對他的靈性生活影響至深的十三個人的生命故事:馬丁•路德•金,甘地,托爾斯泰,陀思妥耶夫斯基,班德醫生,盧雲神父……他們並不一定是傳統意義上的“信心偉人”,有的甚至也未必是基督徒,但是他們的懷疑和堅定,他們的軟弱和勇敢,他們的瑕疵和“刺”,讓我們恍悟:原來一個朝聖者的真實掙扎可以成為其他人安慰的源頭和信仰的磐石,而我們生命的本相更是難以預測的充實和豐盛。

《靈魂倖存者》既是楊腓力個人的信仰履歷表,也是所有具有人文情懷的人的靈性參考書。

我们常常歌唱恩典,谈论恩典,但是很少有人去思考、去探究,到底什么才是恩典——这一使基督教区别于其他宗教的最核心的观念。而本该散发恩典的基督徒和教会,却常常陷入“无恩”里面,无法自救,无力在日常生活中展现它呢?

杨腓力重申圣经立场,并从社会、政治、教会、个人多个事例中分析反思,力指这个世界对恩典的渴求以及恩典的缺乏。他带领我们探求恩典的真相:恩典意即我们不能做任何事叫上帝爱我们更多一些,也不能做任何事叫他爱我们更少一些。恩典是我们这个世界不配有的礼物,也是这个无恩世界中硕果仅存的好词,更是每个人内心最深的渴慕。

本书保持了杨腓力一贯的写作风格:以某个主题为主线,大量的故事和事例,叩问个人内心,反思教会立场;全书结构相对松散,语言极富感染力。杨腓力的层层剖析,逼迫人人反省自己,无处可逃——这也是杨腓力的价值所在。

《恩典多奇异》是杨腓力的代表作,也是他最重要、最畅销的作品之一。

楊腓力是作家的作家。他對語言的運用,敘述的手法,深入到洞見,優美的風格,直陳的自我表白,使得這本書成為他諸多著作中的瑰寶。如果你在讀“思愛成病的父親”那一章時,沒有喜極而泣的話,我建議你檢查一下你的脈搏,做一次心電圖。-----Brennan Manning

Neste livro, o autor procura oferecer retratos da vida sob a graça - o poder que transforma. Busca mostrar como lidar com questões controversas que ameaçam tudo aquilo que os cristãos podem considerar importante.

Falamos da graça com frequência, mas será que a entendemos? Será que realmente cremos nela? Em Maravilhosa graça, Philip Yancey discute por que os cristãos, chamados para espargir o aroma da graça, preferem emitir a fumaça cancerígena da ausência de graça. Para o autor, é preciso responder qual é a aparência de um cristão cheio de graça, em oposição à ausência de graça que “opera como um pano de fundo estático ao longo da vida das famílias, das nações e das instituições. Ela é, infelizmente, nosso estado humano natural!”. Em seu livro mais pessoal e provocativo, Yancey oferece retratos fortes e verdadeiros da vida sob a graça — o poder que transforma. Para os abismos resultantes da ausência de graça, há apenas um remédio do qual dependem o cristão e a igreja. Descubra como lidar graciosamente com questões controversas que ameaçam tudo aquilo que nós — cristãos — consideramos caro!
