Explore Calling: Resources
The General Board of Higher Education and Ministry has compiled a Book Review series to feature and review books related to vocational discernment. Topics include discerning calling, ordained ministry, and personal reflection or devotion. Two books will be featured in each edition of the ExploreCalling e-newsletter throughout fall 2009 and spring 2010. A complete bibliography of books reviewed is available below and current and past features will also be available here.
Books have been reviewed to provide an explanation and understanding of content so that you can decide if a particular resource is applicable for your setting. The ideas in the books featured here do not represent the views or opinions of the staff or directors of the General Board of Higher Education and Ministry.
Unless otherwise specified, book reviews were written by Carolyn J. Davis. Carolyn is currently pursuing her Ph.D. in theological studies at Vanderbilt University, where she is a fellow in the Program for Theology and Practice. She received her M.Div. from Candler School of Theology, has a background in youth ministry, and is a commissioned deacon in the Texas Annual Conference.
