This book is 30 chapters which are designed to read as individual devotionals each day. They are short, warm, and insightful. Guinness is a master with words, clearly making his point with resounding truth. He draws on the wisdom of philosophers like Kierkegaard, Lewis, Kuyper, Luther, and Einstein and also interacts with his personal experiences and biblical accounts to craft a robust theology of calling. Guinness writes for both seekers and believers, realizing that everyone in life is searching for meaning in what they do. He challenges the reader to a life of commitment to follow Jesus and his calling.
The Call is a beautiful blend of theological and devotional literature. An extended study guide, readers will be able to deeply engage with the content of each chapter. It would serve well as a month-long devotional. This spiritual work is sure to inspire and probe readers—young and old, seeker and believer—into finding a higher purpose for your life.
