Continuing the Christian tradition of wisdom imparted through letters, Michael Jinkins here explores big questions of life and faith that challenge people of all ages, especially young adults. Written as a series of letters to the author's own adult children, Called to Be Human resonates at once with the "mere Christianity" of C. S. Lewis and the topical relevance of Anne Lamott. / Readers will find in these pages startling insights illuminating our contemporary experience as human beings, whether Christian or not. Conversing throughout with an amazing range of thinkers and writers Calvin, Bonhoeffer, Lewis, Flannery O'Connor, Rumi, and Frederick Buechner, to name just a few Jinkins doesn't hesitate to share his own frustrations with some aspects of the church, including the failure of many Christians to examine what they believe. Eloquent, edgy, and honest, Called to Be Human offers well-written, accessible, surprising food for thought.
