This is a deep, profound and wise book: deep because it explores the realities of the Christian way; profound because it engages with the wonders of Christian truth; wise because it shows us how to step more fully into the gracious life of Christ.
It is rare to find an author who can capture the nature of vocation with such care and candour, and articulate what a sense of God's call to ministry might actually be about. Jeremy Worthen has combined his deep pastoral wisdom, grounded spirituality and superb scholarly insight to bring us a book that is rich, accessible and wise.
No one could fail to benefit from this clear and accessible study and to be changed by it - it's a portable retreat. Searching and profound, yet gently and companionable, this is a distinguished book and should be read by Christians of all traditions, especially those involved in formal ministry or considering it.
This book emerges from years of experience and offers a thoughtful, wise and learned approach to the vital topic of how people can be formed as Christians in a complex and fast-changing world.
In this elegantly written book Jeremy Worthen weaves together theology, psychology and biblical exegesis to present a finely crafted insight into the process of Christian formation today. I heartily commend it to all readers but in particular anyone who has ever asked themselves the question: 'What is God calling me to in my life?'
