The writer’s new memoir sheds light on an upbringing steeped in bigotry and a lifetime of “useful” pain. Philip Yancey knew he would write a memoir the day he lay strapped to a backboard, not knowing if he would live or die. This was in 2007, after he had already written numerous books and won global acclaim as a journalist spotlighting issues of faith in the stories of other people. Yet it took a careening Jeep, five rolls down an embankment, and a broken neck to persuade him irrevocably to write the full truths of his own story. I saw…

Evangelicals anticipate a ruling on Mississippi’s 15-week ban as a possible first step toward overturning Roe v. Wade. In agreeing to hear a potentially groundbreaking abortion case, the Supreme Court has energized activists on both sides of the long-running debate who are now girding to make abortion access a major issue in next year’s midterm elections. For many evangelicals, the case could serve as a validation of more than four decades of persistent work and a sometimes awkward relationship with former President Donald Trump, whose three Supreme Court appointments sealed a 6-3 conservative majority. If those justices unite to uphold…

Question from a Listener: Hi, I am taking a road trip with a friend who was not raised in an evangelical church. He believes in God but does not know Jesus. He has a heart for God but also has some cynicism toward the church and Evangelicals, as his experience has been they are pushy and hypocritical. I want him to learn more about the true nature of God and His promises. I want his heart to be uncovered and softened and his eyes to be opened to the person of Jesus. Can you recommend something for us to listen…

It’s graduation time! Students all over the world put on the graduation robes they worked so hard to earn. This accomplishment may have required a lot of external, physical work—sprinting to class, carrying heavy books, straining your eyes to read one more page.

It is this internal change that qualifies you to put on the external robes. The Hogwartsian robes do not make you smarter—the change comes first…

How I found eternal life on death row. I grew up in the 1960s in one of the many daisy-chain suburbs surrounding Los Angeles. Seven of us, two adults and five children, struggled for living space in a tiny two-bedroom rental house. My father worked on an assembly line during the day; my mother worked nights as a waitress. Our family was hard-working, but the foundation was dysfunctional—a house built on sinking sand. Church, religion, and the Bible were unknown. Mother was a pill-popper. I don’t know what she took or where she got them, but she was always looking…
