Item Description...
Discusses, through the author's letters to his adult children, how to live a truly Christian life, and offers insights into religion, the Christian church, and spirituality.

Publishers Description
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.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Honesty in Faith  Mar 4, 2010
The letters in this book address much more than the questions posed by the author's adult children and their faith journey. Honest insight into the struggles that most of us face with faith and traditional "religion" is something we all need to be talking about.
a fabulous read  Aug 30, 2009
A recommended read this month in my local library that I dearly enjoyed. This collection of letters from father to child are nothing short of a blessing shared with the world; caring and deeply touching, with amazing quotes and references-- one has to take notes along the way for further explorations. A must read for those beginning or re-affirming their relationship with Christ.
