Item Description...
Other than the question of God, the question of human nature-who we are, why we are here, whey we behave as we do-is the most fundamental and perplexing of all. We are mystified at both the kindness and the horrors of human behavior and wonder where God is in both. In Only Human, David Gushee-ethicist, pastor, and award-winning Christian writer 3/4 uses a classic Christian framework to addresses questions about what it means to be a human being, our makeup and nature, what is right and what is wrong with us, and our origins and destiny. Drawing from contemporary and ancient discussions of human nature, Gushee offers a substantive and accessible exploration of eight essential questions: * Is there such a thing as human nature, something all humans share? * How do we understand what we are made of? * Why do relationships matter so much to us? * Is it true that human beings are intrinsically sinful? * Are human beings truly free to chart their own paths and make meaningful choices? * How do human beings become morally good people or morally evil? * What does a morally great life look like? * What should we hope for as our ultimate goal for life's journey?

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Did I do that?  Dec 16, 2005
Why do I act the way I do? Dr. Gushee does a wonderful job of explaining how human nature effects our everyday lives. Being created in God's image, we all have the ability to do good. Why then is being a good person so easy for some and difficullt for others? Is becoming a "good" person even atainable? This book will give you some insight on our human nature as we strive to be better people. I found it enjoyable and easy to read.
Prodding the deep issues: Christian answers to some tough questions.  Dec 15, 2005
Gushee's book is a wonderful analysis of key questions that are pertinent to the Christian identity. He touches on questions such as whether human nature even exists and why relationsships matter so much to humans--amongst others of course. For the Christan, this book is a wonderful book to incite thought and discussion on what being a Christian really means when it comes to moral life and the outlook on humanity. For those who would not consider themselves Christians, this book will aquaint you to foundational thoughts from a Christian worldview (mainly evangelical) on what it means to be a human being. This is truly a thoughtful, cogent and smart book that encourages thought on key issus on identity from a very good Christian moral philosopher. I really enjoyed it.
LAYMANS TERMS  Dec 6, 2005
Dr. Gushee does a sensational job explaining our humanistic nature to fumble as Christians, and he explores the basic human growing pains that we experience in everyday life. After reading this book I feel like I am not alone in my faults as a christian, and that my journey is more enlightened. I highly recommend this book.
Deep thoughts wrapped in an easy read  Nov 24, 2005
This book is for people who have more questions than answers - which is pretty much all of us. Gushee does a great job of taking weighty questions and ideas, and presenting them in a way that is easy to digest.

If you have ever asked any of these questions:
"what does it means to be human?"
"what does the church say about that?"
"how does that affect how i live my life?"
then you will enjoy this read. I have.
