Publisher's Summary

God calls us first to himself, to know and follow him, and also to a specific life purpose, a particular reason for being. This second call or "vocation" has implications not only for our work or occupation, but also includes our giftedness, our weaknesses, our life in community, and what we do day to day. In this book Gordon Smith invites you to discover your vocation by listening to God and becoming a coworker with him. What is my calling? How do I live it out in the midst of difficult relationships or moral challenges? Will my vocation change as I enter a new stage of life? With competing needs and demands, how can I craft a balanced way of living?

Courage & Calling by Gordon T. Smith

I downloaded this audible to help me through a class I was taking, but found it to be so very inspiring. Letting one help find themselves at their true calling through the Lord. A must have for every Christian out there! I am now reading it (listening to it) for pure pleasure. A book so worth more than 5 stars!!!

Great book!

I thought the narration sounded a bit snooty and stuck up, almost like he was preaching the book instead of narration. Still, the principles are timeless. Great book!

Good book for vocational discernment

Good book for vocational discernment for college students but also great for those who are changing careers and those retiring especially in this economic climate

Narrow in on Your Calling

This is an awesome book! It helps you narrow in on where God has called you and gives guidance with all the details in between.
I only gave this book 4 stars because the author would often talk about "following coincidence/your gut", but he never mentioned how Scripture talks about the heart and how it is deceitful above all things. So I would encourage reading this book, but I would also encourage studying what the scriptures say about your heart.

A wonderful mistake!

I actually was trying to buy 'Courage to Be' by Paul Tillich. When I realized this mistake, I went ahead and listened. Four stars overall only because it is long, but it is filled with wonderful content. The narration is excellent.
