This classic is the rediscovery of one of the Reformations most significant doctrines.
D. Michael Bennethum presents Martin Luther’s teaching on vocation as a resource both for individual believers, helping them find deeper meaning in their ordinary daily labors; and for congregations, encouraging them to develop a climate that supports their members at work.
Gene Veith gives us more than a simple understanding of work— more than a catchy slogan to “do all things for the glory of God.” He outlines a spiritual framework for answering questions such as:
- What does it mean to be a Christian business person or a Christian artist or a Christian lawyer, scientist, construction worker or whatever?
- How can I know what I am supposed to do with my life?
- What does it mean to raise a Christian family? And what if I don’t have kids?
The Protestant doctrine of vocation has had a profound influence on American culture, but in recent years central tenets of this doctrine have come under assault. Vocation: Discerning Our Callings in Life explores current responses to the classic view of vocation and offers a revised statement and application of this doctrine for contemporary North American Christians.
