"Becoming Fully Human" works well for discussion groups in churches, Protestant as well as Catholic, especially when having a small group (let's say, under 15) that is educated and enjoys depth discussion of topics. We have a group of about 12 ladies who meet on Tuesday mornings for discussion of chapters one at a time. The group is somewhat led by our interim pastor (also a woman), and we've had a great time discussing various facets of each subject (getting older, just war, simplicity) in a biblical context. It is fairly simple for us to spend 10-20 minutes at home before each session. Each chapters focuses on a variety of "quotable" quotes about each topic. It's probably a good idea to preface each discussion with the Bible verse that it's based on. Our group enjoys about two hours each week with one topic, but your discussion might well be shorter. The topics encourage thinking about current events, science, etc. I'd recommend it highly for people-centered discussion (not information but ideas). The book might work well for couples as well as teenagers. The topics are definitely relevant to peoples' lives.

Its just a book of clichés. Not interesting or insightful reading. Was recommended by a professor, but was disappointing.

This Jewel from Sister Joan is her 6th Creation I am familiar with enough to have reviewed. I believe that Called to Question was my third and most favorite of all! Both this and the PSALMS For Everyday are equally simple and just as profound! The third one, Called to Question hit me at a time when it needed to ring bells within my psyche`!

My title poses the question, "From where does Sister find the clues for her succinct Chapter Titles?"

"What is a Simple Life? Matthew 6:30

"When Is War Unjust? Isaiah 2:4

"What is Sanctity? Matthew 5:48

"Second Grade is a very dangeous time in life! At least it was for me..."

"What does it mean to be enlightened?" Proverbs 1:20

"Do the Little Things Matter? Ecclesiates 1:2,3

"How Does One Balance Patient Waiting And Action on the Behalf of Justice? Luke 18:11

She uses balanced scriptural emhasis on Theological Themes in human life experence of caring for self and others ++ stewarship of God's handiwork! It is another Jewel in her treaures of Scarred By Struggle, Search For Belief, Called to Question and Psalms for Everyday! Retired Chap Fred W Hood
