THIS IS OUR CALLING

Edited by Charles Richardson

This book was written to help those who believe that God is or may be calling them to serve him, whether in ministry, for a specific task, or through daily discipleship.

Faith and trust are necessary in responding to God's call, and each contributor explores an aspect of vocation, thus helping the enquirer to discern God's purposes. Most contributors are priests in the Catholic Anglican tradition. Discipleship is propounded in the light of Jesus' own vocation, prayer, example and teaching. The response of the disciples and of the early church is shown as relevant to an understanding of God's presence and activity in the church and in today's world. Useful notes, an extensive reading list, and contact addresses are appended. All chapters contain questions for meditation and discussion, but basically the book affirms that God still calls individuals and communities to serve him, as he called the Jews of old.
