In Rumors of Another World, Philip Yancey asks, "Is the visible world around us all there is?" and "What rumors of another world might it convey?" He then examines the apparent contradictions. If this is God's world, why doesn't it look more like it? Why is this planet so messed up? Finally, the book considers how two worlds-the visible and invisible, natural and supernatural-might interact and affect our daily lives. Througout, Yancey invites readers to explore the difference the answers make in coming to grips with our lives.
Rumors of Another World reads like a conversation, inviting those skeptical of religion and turned off by the church to consider the possibility of an unseen, supernatural world of beauty and purpose coexisting with our visible world. Rumors of Another World are just that, rumors and not proofs. Yancey reminds us. "A thin membrane of belief separates the natural from the supernatural. We experience the highest realities through the lowest, and we must learn to pay attention to notice the difference.
