Product Description

What am I going to do with my life? is a question that young people commonly face, while many not-so-young people continue to wonder about finding direction and purpose in their lives. Whether such purpose has to do with what job to take, whether to get married, or how to incorporate religious faith into the texture of life, Christians down the centuries have believed that God has plans for them.

This unprecedented anthology gathers select passages on work and vocation from the greatest writers in Christian history. Placher has written insightful introductions to accompany the selections---an introduction to each of the four main historical sections and a brief introduction to each reading. While the vocational questions faced by Christians have changed through the centuries, Callings demonstrates how the distilled wisdom of these saints, preachers, theologians, and teachers remains relevant to Christians today.

A companion volume, Leading Lives that Matter by Schwehn and Bass, features texts drawn mainly from fiction, memoir, poetry, and other forms of literature.
