Read full description of the books:
In welcoming refugees from Syria, European countries are showing the world what mercy looks like. But mercy, surely, doesn't stop there. What if the United States followed Germany's lead and offered mercy to the throngs of Central Americans who seek to cross its southern border? What does mercy look like in relation to the 2.2 million people being held in US prisons and jails? Or the working poor unable to adequately care for their families? Or the millions of children paying the bitter price of the sexual revolution and its erosion of lifelong marriage? The diverse contributors to this issue of Plough Quarterly focus on how people of faith, by extending forgiveness and mercy, are transforming lives - and perhaps even the course of world events.
Perspectives from Philip Yancey, Gerhard Muller, Hanna-Barbara Gerl-Falkovitz, Charles E. Moore, Eva Mozes Kor, Leo Tolstoy, Charles Williams, Hashim Garrett, Michael Manning, Kim Hyun-sik, Graham Greene, Julian of Norwich, and Eberhard Arnold are sure to stimulate reflection and discussion. And as always, the magazine is illustrated with world-class art by the likes of Ferdinand Hodler, Camille Pissarro, Rembrandt, Fra Angelico, Henry Ossawa Tanner, Fritz von Uhde, Jon Redmond, Balazs Boda, Allan Rohan Crite, and Jason Landsel.
Plough Quarterly features stories, ideas, and culture for people eager to put their faith into action. Each issue brings you in-depth articles, interviews, poetry, book reviews, and art to help you put Jesus' message into practice and find common cause with others.

Read information about the authorA native of Atlanta, Georgia, Philip Yancey earned graduate degrees in Communications and English from Wheaton College Graduate School and the University of Chicago. He joined the staff of Campus Life Magazine in 1971, and worked there as Editor and then Publisher. He looks on those years with gratitude, because teenagers are demanding readers, and writing for them taught him a lasting principle: The reader is in control!
In 1978 Philip Yancey became a full-time writer, initially working as a journalist for such varied publications as Reader’s Digest, Publisher’s Weekly, National Wildlife, Christian Century and The Reformed Journal. For many years he wrote a monthly column for Christianity Today magazine, which he still serves as Editor at Large.
His twenty books include Where Is God When It Hurts, The Student Bible, and Disappointment with God. These books have won thirteen Gold Medallion Awards from the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association and have sold more than fifteen million copies. (Fearfully and Wonderfully Made, In His Image, and The Gift of Pain were co-authored with Dr. Paul Brand.) Christian bookstore managers selected The Jesus I Never Knew as the 1996 Book of the Year, and What’s So Amazing About Grace? won the same award in 1998. His most recent books are Prayer: Does It Make Any Difference?, A Skeptic’s Guide to Faith, Reaching for the Invisible God, and Soul Survivor. In 2009 a daily reader compiled from all his books was published: Grace Notes.
The Yanceys lived in downtown Chicago for many years before moving to a very different environment in Colorado. They enjoy hiking, wildlife, and all the other delights of the Rocky Mountains.
