Full Audio Book - The Shape of Calling

Summary
Calling has become somewhat of a loaded word. For some, it creates a sense of excitement, vision and possibility about their future. For others, calling can be confusing and raise more questions than it answers. It may raise feelings of hurt, anxiety, or disappointment. 
 
Perhaps you’ve wrestled with the way calling has been presented to you in the past? Or, maybe you have received a clear call from God but don’t feel confident about the journey that lies ahead? You may carry a feeling of guilt, wondering if you have missed the opportunity you once saw so clearly? 

What if there was a way to explore the mysteries of calling in a life-giving way? What if there was an opportunity to revisit some of the old and narrower definitions of calling, and expand them to capture a fuller sense of God’s intention? 

This audiobook has been produced to help navigate you through some of the more nuanced aspects of calling, such as:

  • How do we accurately define calling?
  • Why does the image of God we hold onto, and the metaphors we use when relating to God, have such a profound impact on our choices and sense of freedom?
  • What problems occur when we try and discern a call?
  • Is there a way we resolve an inner tension of not wanting to embrace a call from God?
  • How does calling practically outwork in our lives, and what responsibility must we take to see it come to fruition? 
  • The discerning process of testing a call. 

Full Audio Book read by the author Christopher Trodden
