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.

About the Author:

D. Michael Bennethum has been an ordained pastor in the Lutheran Church since 1979, serving congregations in Pennsylvania and Georgia. He has done graduate work in Reformation theology at Emory University and holds a Doctor of Ministry Degree from the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia. Currently, he and his family live in Reading, Pennsylvania, where he serves as senior pastor of Reformation Evangelical Lutheran Church.

Review:

"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
