According to Doug Schuurman, many Christians in America today find it both strange and difficult to interpret their social, economic, political, and cultural lives as responses to God's calling. To help renew this biblical perspective and to combat the bureaucratic, individualistic tenor of American cultural and institutional life, Robert Bellah and other noteworthy social theorists recommend a return to older notions of calling and the common good. Schuurman wholeheartedly agrees that Christians must recover the language, meaning, and reality of life as vocation, but he also sees little being said about what vocation used to mean or how to articulate the spiritual, theological, and ethical presuppositions of the classic Protestant vision.
"Vocation after Christendom meets this important challenge. Developed in dialogue with audiences as diverse as college students, industrial workers, business leaders, church leaders, and professional theologians and ethicists, the book examines the theological and ethical dimensions of vocation, both as these have been understood historically and in relation to our modern social setting.
Comprehensive in scope and accessible to all readers, "Vocation after Christendom is an ideal text for coursesin Christian ethics, spirituality, or worldview and a fine resource for churches, study groups, and individuals considering issues of faith and life.
