3.0 out of 5 stars Good devotional, probably wouldn't recommend though. 8 October 2015
By Tyler M. - Published on

Grace Notes has been a good devotional so far. My girlfriend and I are reading this together. We settled on this per a recommendation from a friend as a devotional for couples. We were not familiar with Philip Yancey or any of his works before reading this.

I love how it is broken out by day. Makes it really easy to spend time daily to focus on things that really matter. Some of the sections are better than others. Some are great and some I didn't find very relevant. Seemed like there were a lot of sections on race and equality. Also a lot on prayer and the struggles that sometimes come with prayer. As far as a devotional specific for couples, I wouldn't recommend. As a personal devotional it's strong for someone who has been a Christian for a while, but it does take a little effort on the readers end to find scripture to support some of the things being talked about.

5.0 out of 5 stars What A pleasant surprise 28 July 2015
By L. Richter - Published on

This book grabbed my attention right away. I loved what Philip had to say about his faith and his writing experience. I normally shy away from Christian writers because I am one of the scattered sheep. I found this book and the author refreshing, like a deep breath of fresh air after being deprived of air. I too am a writer and I totally could relate to this author. Thank you Philip for so much you have shared in this book. I will now be collecting other books you have written. I do hope you read the reviews because I really want you to know that your personal story as a writer meant a great deal to me personally. This will be my daily devotional book and I thank you for that as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Philip Yancey Writes From Our Hearts 13 February 2017
By Tom McCoy - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a unique and erudite devotional, grounded in the reality of everyone's experiences in life, inspired by his own apparent loneliness (which is the loneliness we all feel) and his deep thought about who Jesus was and was not and what he said and did not say. Somehow, at the end on December 31, there is fresh love one feels about Jesus and a fresh hope that His love will carry us through if we just let him do it. Yancey is a gift from God to all of us searching for Him.

5.0 out of 5 stars Grace Notes - Philip Yancy 1 January 2017
By Barrie H Jack - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This devotional has (and will continue) to draw me back to the basic tenets of faith: that even with difficult questions about life's sometimes unfair and seemingly God-free problems that afflict us, I find that through the grace bought by Christ's sacrifice, God the Father is always there in love and through Him comfort and blessing are available if only I turn to Him.

5.0 out of 5 stars Daily dose of spiritual energy 3 April 2011
By Elizabeth H. Cottrell - Published on

I found this daily devotional very satisfying and inspiring...reminiscent of Frederick Buechner's work. It consists of excerpts from Yancey's other writings, some of which I had already read...some others, I've added to my To Read list.

To me, the strength of this book--as in most of Yancey's writing--is its honesty about doubts, fears, questions, and how religion plays out in a real life. I found it to be clear and powerful as he shared his ways of dealing with doubt, faith, temptation, and hypocrisy:

"In my spiritual journey as well as in my writing career I have long lingered in the margins, pondering unanswerable questions about the problem of pain, the conundrums of prayer, providence versus free will, and other such matters. When I do so, everything becomes fuzzy. Looking at Jesus, however, restores clarity."

"...Satan's power is external and coercive. God's power, in contrast, is internal and non-coercive...God became weak for one purpose: to let human beings choose freely for themselves what to do with him."

"...only love can summon a response of love, which is the one ting God wants from us...Love has its own power, the only power ultimately capable of conquering the human heart."

"But we dare not make sweeping claims about the promise of God's intimate presence unless we take into account those times when God seems absent. The great saints encountered it, Job encountered it, and at some point nearly everyone must face the fact of God's hiddenness."

Yancy states, "I have cast my lot with a gospel based on grace." Yet even in this statement, Yancey acknowledges the danger of falling into the trap of doing whatever we want because we've already been forgiven. "An individualistic society America is in constant danger of freedom abuse; its churches are in danger of grace abuse."

If you have trouble setting aside quiet time for God, using a daily devotional may be a good place to start since it's a small time commitment that can reap great rewards. A devotional of this sort is, by its very nature, just bits and pieces of wisdom and inspiration, but it touches on the core issues that a Christian faces in life, and it offers insight into ways that a seeker can strengthen his/her connection with God. This starts...and intentionally drawing near to a God who, Yancey believes, yearns for us as much as we yearn for Him.
