In the fall of 2007, a fraternity man of Christian faith, and a physician, traveled back to his college alma mater after a long hiatus to celebrate his college homecoming. He encountered the usual old friends and heard and told stories from the frathouse of a generation past. But something else happened in the midst of the Homecoming parade, the football game, the tailgate party, and the memories-the man of faith kept talking about God, and everybody kept talking about God to him. With music blaring in the nightclub and people partying all around, one of those fraternity brothers said to that man of faith, "you need to write a book." They called that "Bruh" (short for "brother") "Cisco" and so, it is to Cisco, and to the author's former medical school roommate, fraternity brother, and best friend since childhood, Keith, that this book is written.
Dear Cisco, Dear Keith: A Frat Brother's Letters On God, His Love, His People, And Their Struggles, authored by the emerging exhorter of the Christian faith, Darryl L. Fortson, MD, is a compelling collection of letters on the relevance of God's Holy Word in everyday life. Combining Holy Scripture with a down-to-earth and sometimes comical literary style, Dr. Fortson addresses an eclectic range of topics from faith to Viagra, from abortion to surgery, and from prayer to the "N-word" in a way that is bereft of pretense, but full of power.
Dear Cisco, Dear Keith is a concise, but powerful read that will cause you to look at the mundane experiences, as Dr. Fortson puts it, "upside-in" and "outside down," seeing God's hand and guidance right where we stand, and helping us to humbly answer the question for ourselves, "what does God have to do with my everyday life?"
