There’s a world just outside your church doors inhabited by people "who are interested in spirituality but not religion, who are seeking God but not in the church." Award-winning author Philip Yancey calls these folks "Borderlanders" — and he writes to and for them in his latest work, Rumors of Another World.

Philip will focus on people’s fascination with spirituality and how that can point them to the God of the Bible when Church Communication Network hosts An Evening with Philip Yancey on Sunday, September 14.
This live, interactive satellite broadcast is a great event to invite your "borderland" friends to experience.
"I can’t think of a more custom-tailored group for a church interested in outreach than borderlanders," Philip says. "We have to dismantle stereotypes and overcome resistance, but with borderlanders, you’re dealing with people who already sense a spark of spiritual awakening.
"I celebrate the common ground we share, a belief that there are invisible, spiritual forces at work in the world. From that common ground, I move on to the differences and, frankly, I think Christianity stands up pretty well in comparison."
Get ready for an insightful, challenging Evening with Philip Yancey as he looks what attracts people to the "Borderlands of Belief" and how we are called by God to reach out to these people who have an avowed interest in spiritual matters.
