How does our primary Christian vocation (or calling)"to enter the kingdom of God in faithful obedience"transform our choice of jobs and careers, and our deliberate preparation for these through experience and education?

Our contributors disengage "vocation" from some modern assumptions and recover its original mystery and power. We do not simply "choose" a vocation. We respond to a summons - one that is often against our will and involves hardships to be overcome. God's gift of vocation, which comes through and is oriented toward community, is discovered in a way of life nourished by prayer, Sabbath-keeping, meditating on God's Word, fasting, hospitality, and spiritual direction.

"As we study for a profession, let us sing the 'Doxology'!" Howard E. Butt, Jr. urges, for we can be "builders, following Jesus the builder-building our capacities and building other people up, building relationships and organizations, a company, a service, a breakthrough-building our ministry in daily life."
