This is an excellent book for gaining a well balanced perspective on Christian life. Jerram Barrs and Ranald Macaulay are tremendous thinkers and have a wonderful understanding of Christian development and growth. I highly recommend it.

Review 2 for Being Human: The Nature of Spiritual Experience
Date:December 27, 2000
The realistic spirituality portrayed in Being Human changed my life fifteen years ago. God used this book to convert me from a passive modern-day Gnosticism to an active Christianity which understands that God is already working in His world and He has called me and empowered me to cooperate with His work - in spite of my failures. Being Human is must reading for everyone who wishes to have a truly Christ-centered life. It is a powerful antidote to mysticism which distiguises as Christianity.
