Listen! God Is Calling!: Luther Speaks of Vocation, Faith, and Work

Listen! God Is Calling!: Luther Speaks of Vocation, Faith, and Work

The Christian faith has implications for all of life. Yet, many Christians do not make the connection between the resources of their faith and the challenges they face in daily life and work. God's call to faithful living is often understood primarily in terms of being involved in church-sponsored ministries. In Listen! God Is Calling! author D. Michael Bennethum presents Martin Luther's teaching on vocation as a resource both for individual believers, helping them find deeper meaning in their ordinary daily labors; and for congregations, encouraging them to develop a climate that supports their members at work.

"Every pastor who has tried program after program to motivate members should read this book. Applying a central reformation idea to congregational life, not adding programs, holds much more promise of renewal. Members should read it, too, because it validates their faith-lived lives and they need to hear that over and over."
— Judith McWilliams Dickhart, Author, Denton, Maryland

"A 'must read' for all those wondering how to cross that great divide between Sunday and Monday—the relationship between their faith and their daily work. Pastor Bennethum's book is an excellent resource for developing the skills to listen for God's call in every aspect of one's life. Informative, practical, and provocative, the book is a great tool for all the baptized, both those whose ministry is in the world and those who are professional leaders in the church."
— Carol L. Weiser, Director of Communications, Northeastern Pennsylvania Synod, ELCA
