The oft-overlooked area of calling (“An external commission from God for others”) also gets an in-depth treatment. Calling is what keeps life purpose from becoming an exercise in navel—it prods us to seek revelation on how God is calling us to serve, instead of merely looking inside and asking, “What do I want in life?” Calling is about being Christ to the world–and there is a unique facet of who God is that you are called to uniquely embody.
Finally, you’ll roll it all together into a set of life purpose statements you can post on the wall and refer to again and again. Covering everything from understanding your personality type to creating value statements to identifying the message of your life for others, this book is a practical, accessible gold-mine of tools for anyone seeking to understand what God made them for.
Stages on the Calling Journey
A second companion book is The Calling Journey, a look at the stages leaders go through on the road to fulfilling their call. This volume lays out a model of calling timelines with predictable valleys and transitions. Coaching the calling stage a person is in right now instead of using the generic approach makes a tremendous difference in coaching effectiveness.
