About-

Every Life Matters. When you truly see a person God has placed in your path, not just with your eyes, but also with your heart, you just might catch a glimpse of God. When you cultivate the ability to see the "invisible," you open yourself up to the opportunity for spiritual transformation. Some individuals may seem obscure, even invisible to the world, but if you choose to engage in a meaningful way, to hear and understand their story, the encounter could transform you--and them.

Listen In On A Conversation between Dr. Arthur Ammann and Barbara McLennan, inspired by the brief letter of the Apostle Paul to Philemon. Dr. Ammann presents rich stories of transformation occurring in the lives of friends, brothers and sisters, husbands and wives, and even strangers bringing new found value to each individual Together, they explore what it means to engage in authentic relationships, and confront the devastating influences of our culture and technology, which threaten to undermine the value of individuals. The authors will challenge you to expect that transformation may occur in every encounter, and to resist the relentless intrusion of technology that seeks to diminish our value.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"In the book of Philemon, the Apostle Paul called Onesimus 'useful.' So would I label Dr. Arthur Ammann. While serving as head of Pediatric Immunology at UCSF Medical School, he discovered the link between blood transfusion and HIV/AIDS. Now mothers and children in developing countries benefit from his knowledge and connections through Global Strategies for HIV Prevention. This useful man now draws on those experiences to share his thoughts on the biblical book of Philemon so that we too can become useful."
--Diane M. Komp, author of The Healer's Heart

"Jesus called us to love one another as he loved us, and (In)Visible is a clarion reissuing of that call to go beyond the 'spiritually gated communities' in which we are prone to live. By telling of the Apostle Paul's relationship with Onesimus and his own relationships with family and friends, a taxi driver, a fellow camp worker, and a wise, young patient, Arthur Ammann--in illuminating dialogue with Barbara McClennan--shows that God's grace knows no boundaries of age, class, or origin. In our life-stifling culture of overwork and depersonalized relations, this lean book offers aerobics for the soul."
--Susan S. Phillips, author of Candlelight
