"What should I do with my life? What should I major in? What career should I choose? Should I get married? What if I can't find a job that I want? How do I balance work and family life?
"We find an answer here to the question: How far does the modern notion of 'vocation' have a place within the Orthodox worldview?" Bishop Kallistos Ware.
In this book, Orthodox thinkers and scholars write expressly on the topic of vocation. Khaled Anatolios, Deborah Belonick, John Barnet, Stanley Harakas, Demetrios Katos, Paul Meyendorff, Theodore Stylianopoulos and Paul Tarazi address questions about vocation, each from their own particular perspective.
Chapter titles include:
- Seek First His Kingdom: An Invitation to Christian Vocation
- Considering Vocation: The Witness of the Fathers
- The Call of the Virgin Mary
- Vocation and Ethics
A brief Study Guide accompanies the book, with questions for review and reflection and guidelines for using the book with a group.
An OCF Chapter may request copies of the book and study guide by writing Fr. Stevan Bauman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
