Overview
In the Episcopal Church, it seems the only real purpose and end of Christian discernment is professional ordination, either to the priesthood or to the vocational diaconate. This book deals with such questions as, How can both communities and individuals discern a call from God within the vocations and tasks in which they find themselves? How can the Church deal creatively with its confusion about the differing roles and authority of ordained and lay ministers?

Reviews - What do customers think about Transforming Vocation (Transformations Series)?

This book is transformative.  Jan 15, 2009
For anyone who has ever asked, "Why am I here?" or "Why did God put me here?" here is the guidance for discernment.
Sam's book will guide everyone who reads it as they look at their own call to vocation - laity and clergy alike. His thoughts on the vocations of our lives will enhance anyone's "self study" and also each of our relationships with our God.
