Having finished college, I finally feel like image time to read books again, rather than just doing endless readings on a particular topic. I spotted this one in a recent Briefing magazine, and thought I’d give it a try. Author Michael Bennett is an ordained minister who never felt the sense of God leading him in a particular direction, but just sought to be faithful to what he thought a Christian with his skills should do, and this kept him heading in that direction.
There’s an overview of the way the word “call” (kalein) is used in the bible, and he puts forward a theory: not of the priesthood of all believers, but that all Christians are to be involved in living for god, and hence in ministry. A thoughtful, practical book.
