Description

God calls us first to himself, to know and follow him, and also to a specific life purpose, a particular reason for being. This second call or "vocation" has implications not only for our work or occupation, but also includes our giftedness, our weaknesses, our life in community and what we do day to day. In this book Gordon Smith invites you to discover your vocation by listening to God and becoming a coworker with him. --from publisher description

This is a great book. It's one of those books you just have to pause from time to time to absorb a weighty point raised in them. It is a modern treatise on the subject of calling and one that every serious christian must seriously study.
