Publisher's Summary

Why am I here? What is God's call in my life? How do I fit God's call with my own individuality? How should God's calling affect my career, my plans for the future, and my concepts of success?

First published in 1997 by distinguished author and speaker Os Guiness, The Call remains a treasured source of wisdom for those who ask these questions. According to Guinness, "No idea short of God's call can ground and fulfill the truest human desire for purpose and fulfillment."

In this newly updated and expanded anniversary edition, Guinness explores the truth that God has a specific calling for each one of us and guides a new generation of readers through the journey of hearing and heeding that call. 

With more than 100,000 copies in print, The Call is for all who desire a purposeful, intentional life of faith.

Study guide available in the audiobook companion PDF download.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

a book worth reading

will help the reader understand how the call has not changed in God's definition but how we may not fully understand the responsibility of a calling.

Great Content ... at x2.5 speed

Loved the content. It is very helpful from a Christian standpoint in helping us understanding the concept of calling and where and how our faith is involved in the concept of calling. The best part is understanding that there is a primary and a secondary calling to our lives that is informed by our God given giftedness.

My only complaint is that 5 minutes at regular speed would put me to sleep. x2 speed was bearable but 10 minutes of that put me to sleep. x2.5 is what kept me going. its about a 300 page book read in 13 hours.... do the math and you can see why you must listen at a minimum x2 speed.

Keep on going

This book has meant so much to me. I’m getting near the end of my life. I found myself enthralled, left speechless, at the end of many chapters. I did not find that I was disappointed with my life but encouraged to keep going on.
Thank you, Os Guinness

This is a must read for every believer. One of those books that each Christian should read in the journey if not once but many times.

following a squirrel

Following a squirrel. Not really a book so much as a collection of essays on a theme. Denas starts every chapter with writings or stories from other people then tries to make a point and then usually has 3 points.
