This session will explore themes from Philip Yancey’s new book, Where the Light Fell, which recounts his journey away from fundamentalism and toward a life-affirming, hospitable Christian faith. Both speakers will address the spiritual concept of grace, as well as the relationship between faith and wonder. When Christianity—including politically defined Christianity that journalists often encounter in Washington and on the campaign trail—is reduced to an identity label, or hollowed out from its theological content, what spiritually-formative practices might revive deeper understanding of and commitment to orthodox faith? And for journalists covering American religion, what do we sometimes miss—especially with respect to authentic expressions of spiritual formation?
