Our conversation with Philip Yancey continues, focusing on his life and upbringing as told in his new memoir Where the Light Fell. We discuss the role the Bible played both in the toxic culture of his youth and later as a book that drew him back into the arms of a loving God.

The Institute for Bible Reading is delighted to announce Carolyn Custis James as the newest member of our Board of Advisors. Carolyn joins Philip Yancey and Andy Crouch on our growing advisory team.
Carolyn is an author, activist, and speaker who researches and writes about the intersection between Christianity and twenty-first century questions facing women and men globally. Her 2015 book Malestrom: Manhood Swept into the Currents of a Changing World won the Christianity Today 2016 Book of the Year Award in the Her.meneutics category, and was named to the Best 10 Books of 2015 list by Missio Alliance.
Carolyn also serves as an adjunct faculty member at BTS (Biblical Theological Seminary) in Pennsylvania, a consulting editor for Zondervan’s Exegetical Commentary Series on the New Testament, and a contributing editor for Leadership Journal. In 2013, Christianity Today named her one of the 50 evangelical women to watch.
Upon joining the Board of Advisors, Carolyn was asked to comment on the Institute’s work. “Like electricity, running water, well-stocked grocery stores, and endless miles of smooth paved roads, easy access to the Bible and the ability to own a copy are privileges we take for granted. We’ve lost sight of what it took to write this much-neglected book and the price many paid to get it into our hands.” She told us, “We’re missing out on the life-transforming wisdom and the hope-filled good news it proclaims. Nothing should hold us back from diving into the grandest and best story ever told and to discover afresh the God who loves us and draws us into his story. I am grateful to be part of a movement that aims to help us do exactly that.”

When asked about the Institute Andy says, “Our world is saturated with words. And in one sense we’ve never had more access to the Word—on paper and on screens. But that very saturation makes the challenge of encouraging true reading, and transformative engagement, with Scripture far more complex than it has ever been. The leaders of the Institute for Bible Reading are among the most restless, insightful, and creative people I know. Anyone who cares about Bible engagement should beat a path to their door.”
