Product Description

In the tone of a much-loved college chaplain, Michael F. Duffy takes his readers through a personal theological journey, exploring what it means to discern and live out a thoughtful, informed, and responsible faith. Encouraging Christians to develop and commit themselves to a critically developed vision of God, Duffy introduces the basic intents, questions, and conversation partners in theology, providing guidance on how to responsibly engage each one. Finally, he utilizes the skills he introduces to lead his readers through an exploration of vocation---whether God calls, whether God calls each of us individually, and, if so, what God calls us to.

Michael F. Duffy is Associate Professor of Theological Studies and Chair of the Department of Theological Studies at Hanover College in Indiana. He serves on the advisory panel of the Lilly Endowment's Programs for the Theological Exploration of Vocation and is an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ.

    As as academic with a compelling need to quantify everything, I've struggled at times with my faith. This fantastic book works WITH the way I think, with thought-provoking study questions at the end of each chapter. I am only a few chapters in at the moment, but I really appreciate the author's thorough treatment of faith, theology, and Christianity so far and look forward to the upcoming sections on how to think as a theologian, find one's true vocation, and "live faithfully in an uncertain world".
