From the Back Cover:
What does it mean to live as a Christian in the busy, secular world? How is it possible not to be overwhelmed by the pace and rush of modern life? These are the central themes explored in the Archbishop's Lent Book for 1998. From the starting point of overwhelming images, information and emotions which bombard believers on their spiritual quest, David Ford takes the ancient Christian notion of "Vocation"--the life that one should lead in order to be most fulfilled and closest to God--and considers what relevance it has at the end of the 20th century. He looks at the people who shape us, life-changing desires and relationships, the rhythm and necessity of work and domestic time and the extreme good and bad experiences which must challenge the chosen path. Throughout he offers practical Christian wisdom.
About the Author:
David F. Ford is Regius Professor of Divinity at Cambridge University, and a well-known author and theologian.
