Reviews - What do customers think about The Call ?

How To Decide  Nov 30, -0001
"The Call," by, Os Guinness, is another one of those books which offers help to people seeking meaning and purpose to their lives. It's a fairly literate survey of historical figures caught in the same position trying to answer the question, "who am I, and what shall I do with the life I have?" For all his meandering through biographical examples, Guinness provides, at the end of each chapter, one simple solution, "Listen to Jesus of Nazareth; answer his call." While that advice is invaluable, it is neither particularly startling nor creatively insightful. Os's writing is ploddingly pedestrian--more like a survey of history textbook than a compelling, engaging book to lead one out of a wilderness of confusion into clarity of thought and earnestness of purpose. Skip the chapters and employ the recipe. There really is no shortcut, and reading about "how-to" is no substitute for doing: "Listen to Jesus of Nazareth; answer His call!"
 
Many insights and reflections   Nov 30, -0001
The book is just like the title in its cover page : "Finding and Fulfilling the Central Purpose of Your Life." It helps clarifying how Christians are to live their lives in today's confused world. Very grateful for this book.
 
A Deeper understanding of purpose  Nov 30, -0001
After reading other books on purpose, and wanting to learn more about God's calling for my life, I read this book together with a friend, and found the experience quite educational, spiritually enlightening, and at times surprising.
The distinction between the Corporate Calling, and the Specific Calling is a great help in understanding our purpose and how it relates to our profession.
Additionally, the myths of the Catholic churches, and Protestant churches are explored, and help to explain the dissatisfaction in "Religion" that seems to be growing in the world.
Many references to historic figures, and biblical figures make this a great read. Probably not appropriate for a seeker, but all believers should enjoy this book.

 
Powerful  Nov 30, -0001
This is one of the best Christian books I've read in the past 20 years. I'm afraid to say that I thought it might be boring based on the title. The concept of calling did not at first glance seem to be to be a very exciting theological topic. I'm happy to say that I was wrong. This is a very powerfully written book.
 
The Call  Nov 30, -0001
This is a great book for either a daily devotion for personal use or as material for a men's study group. For either use it gives you considerable material for thought and prayer in directing your life to Christ. As a group study using the study guide included in the back of the book as started questions, you can develop great men's ministry sessions that holds the attention of the men.
