Disillusioned by the distortions and hypocrisies of the church in which he grew up, Philip Yancey set out in search of a life enhanced by faith instead of diminished by religion. Having struggled to forge personal convictions about God amid the ironies of life and the incongruities of religion, he looks closer at those whose lives radiate spiritual authenticity rather than pious posturing. From Dostoevsky to Martin Luther King, G. K. Chesterton to Paul Brand, Yancey pays homage to some of the most remarkable, selfless, Christ-like lives our world has known, and asks what both he and we can do to find such beautiful faith in our own lives.… (més)

Yancey's "Soul Survivor" presents us with 13 individuals whose lives and writings allowed him to hold on to his faith despite his extreme disappointment with his southern fundamentalist upbringing. His early church's racism and legalism left him with doubts about the very truths of the "good news" of the gospel and the grace of God. He focuses primarily on Christians (among them Martin Luther King, Jr., G.K. Chesterson, Paul Brand, and John Donne), but also includes Mahatma Gandhi who rejected Christianity while adopting many of Christ's teachings. Yancey makes it clear that each "spiritual director" is flawed and yet each held on to his/her faith despite their doubts, sins, rejection, and sometimes severe physical costs. Each of these guides strove to have a real relationship with God and to share that grace with others in the best way they knew how. Raised as a fundamentalist, I've been facing my own struggles with the hypocrisy of the Church. I found this book a particularly timely reminder that we must keep our eyes on the God of the Bible, and not those who claim to be Christ's namesakes. Christianity is about grace (unmerited favor), not judgment, sin, patriotism or politics, or business practices. ( )

Yancey's writing is a breath of fresh air amidst so many Christian books on doctrine, end times, family dynamics and other hot topics. He doesn't write from a position of authority, but from the point of view of a questioner, learning as he writes.

This particular book gives potted biographies of thirteen men and women who have had profound influences on Yancey's life and faith. They're not great campaigners of the modern church, or even martyrs of old. Instead, these are flawed people of the 20th century, often struggling themselves with questions of life and faith.

One of them, Mahatma Ghandi, never became a Christian at all although his life of peace was in many ways Christlike. Most of them were writers - Tolstoy, Donne, Chesterton, for instance - who left behind powerful legacies of the written word, yet whose lives were tormented in various ways, physical or emotional.

I didn't find this as thought-provoking as many of Yancey's books, but it was an interesting read and showed me new ways of looking at the various writers he describes.

If you’re interested by how different kinds of writing can affect someone’s faith profoundly, then this is a good book to read. If you like Yancey’s writing and are interested in some of the background to how he reached his current beliefs, then this fills in some of the picture well. However, as a stand-alone book it’s not particularly inspiring; I’m glad I re-read it, ten years after originally reading it, but it didn’t do anything for me second time around, and I wouldn’t recommend it as an introduction to his work.

I rated it four stars the first time I read it; three-and-a-half would be fairer.

This book had a profound and affirming influence on me. It also led me to many other wonderful authors and books. ( )

Any book with a chapter on Frederick Buechner rocks. Philip Yancey is a breath of fresh air in this current "Pray it and get it" stream of Christianity. This is how his faith survived the church. This may be how I survive my faith. ( )
