Journalist and spiritual seeker Philip Yancey has always struggled with the most basic questions of the Christian faith. The question he tackles in What Good is God? concerns the practical value of belief in God. His search for the answer to this question took him to some amazing settings around the world: Mumbai, India, when the firing started during the terrorist attacks; at the motel where Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated; on the Virginia Tech campus soon after the massacre; an AA convention; and even to a conference for women in prostitution. At each of the 10 places he visited, his preparation for the visit and exactly what he said to the people he met at each provided evidence that faith really does work when what we believe is severely tested.
What Good is God? tells the story of Philip's journey - the background, the preparation, the presentations themselves. Here is a story of grace for armchair travelers, spiritual seekers, and those in desperate need of assurance that their faith really matters.

I didn't think the book answered the question the title posed, however, it was a great compilation of different Christian experiences around the world, it really makes you think about other cultures and that Christianity is not just the way it is in America. Lots of both inspiring and interesting stories. Each chapter, part 1 was a story about an area of group of people and part 2 was him reading one of his talks he gave to those people. I will have to say I liked the Part 1's better than the part 2's. But this was worth my time and gave me new insights.
