The letters that comprise the book follow two conversations one to Jinkinss son Jeremy and one to his daughter Jessica which sometimes overlap and sometimes diverge. They discuss vocation, philosophy, doubt, and other big questions of faith. Along the way, Jinkins shares illuminating passages from some of his favorite writers and thinkers from C. S. Lewis and John Calvin, to Frederick Buechner and Rumi. He also doesnt hesitate to share his own frustrations with some aspects of the church, including the failure of many Christian to examine their faith.
Eloquent, edgy, and honest, Called to Be Human will resonate with readers who are serious about living their faith authentically. This book is ideal for young adults and their ministers, teachers, youth leaders, and parents.
