9780470481646: About You: Fully Human, Fully Alive

In About You, Dick Staub addresses irreligious, religious, spiritual seekers and all kinds of Christians and shows us that Jesus came to satisfy our universal longing for a fully human life, not to establish a narrow us versus them religion. In short, Jesus didn't come to make us Christian; Jesus came to make us fully human. In a fresh exploration of the ancient Biblical stories of creation, fall and redemption, Staub explains that salvation is not about going to heaven when we die; it is about a full and abundant life now. In practical, down-to-earth, language, About You deals with this concept on three levels: anthropologically (our common story and universal human needs), theologically (God’s awareness and response to our needs), and practically (how we can attain and maintain a more complete and satisfying life).

Staub's previous book (The Culturally Savvy Christian) was selected by Kirkus Reviews for their 2007 Religion and Spirituality edition. This new book is designed to help those who are seeking a way to integrate both a fully alive spirituality and a fully alive humanity—a way that is embodied in the often-misunderstood life and teaching of Jesus Christ. This groundbreaking book illuminates the path towards becoming the best version of yourself.

From the Inside Flap:

"We yearn to be fully alive and fully human, but the very fact that we yearn for this means it is not an actuality. We want to be more than we are, but are somehow less than we should be. We feel less than fully human, which is another way of saying we have somehow been dehumanized."
from the Preface

In About You, Dick Staub addresses irreligious, religious, spiritual seekers, and all kinds of Christians, and shows us that Jesus came to satisfy our universal longing for a fully human life, not to establish a narrow us-versus-them religion. In short, Jesus didn't come to make us Christian; Jesus came to make us fully human. In a fresh exploration of the ancient Biblical stories of creation, fall, and redemption, Staub explains that salvation is not about going to heaven when we die; it is about a full and abundant life now. In practical, down-to-earth language, About You deals with this concept on three levels: anthropologically (our common story and universal human needs), theologically (God's awareness and response to our needs), and practically (how we can attain and maintain a more complete and satisfying life).

From the author of Christian Wisdom of the Jedi Masters and The Culturally Savvy Christian, this new book is designed to help those who are seeking a way to integrate both a fully alive spirituality and a fully alive humanity—a way that is embodied in the often-misunderstood life and teaching of Jesus Christ. This groundbreaking book illuminates the path toward becoming the best version of yourself.

From the Back Cover:

Praise for About You

"The human race, in its mass confusion and conflict, asks the existential questions to which there seem to be no solid answers. In the sweep of a mere fourteen chapters, Dick Staub offers us the coherent narrative of the Why of humanity, the How of healing, and the Who of the Creator, giving firm ground for thoughtful questioners to stand on."
Luci Shaw, poet and author, Breath for the Bones, Harvesting Fog

"Broadcaster, writer, lover of all things C.S. Lewis, raconteur par excellence, and great friend, Dick Staub is one of the few people I've met who truly cares about people becoming fully human. He is a faithful and effective guide on the journey to do just that."
Bill Kinnon, Moving Image creator, writer, blogger

"Dick Staub's insight into our present age and our own deep longings lead us on a 'rowdy pilgrimage' to discover the riches that lay within our unique design while pointing us to the fully human life."
Scott & Pam Nolte, theatre artists and co-founders, Taproot Theatre

"Staub's refreshingly honest book doesn't flinch at the reality of our fallenness, but offers fresh insight into a profound mystery: Why does God love us? What is wrong with the current picture of our lives? How can it be painted more beautifully and truly to match the vision of the Artist?"
Bruce Herman, artist and Lothlorien Distinguished Chair in Fine Arts, Gordon College
