Read in November, 2009

The book has some good moments as it points out how Christianity should really be about loving your neighbor and how doing things for "the invisible world" actually makes a difference in this world as well.

Where the book falls short, however, is that all the examples don't really show why another world is needed for explaining all these positive actions, dreams and hopes. It's as if Yancey had told himself, "OK, let's write a skeptical book -- but not too skeptical." There are clear boundaries that he is not ready to cross, and one of them is that there has to be another world.
