Overview
"For anyone responding to a call to the ministry, this book will be an excellent guide." --Jimmy Carter, Thirty-ninth President of the United States and Nobel Peace Prize Winner The Fund for Theological Education (FTE) annually invites our nation's premier preachers to address a group of young adults who are considering a vocation in pastoral ministry. As part of the FTE's honoring of their outgoing president, Dr. James Waits, for his remarkable service, they have collected these superb sermons. These eight sermons on vocation offer an important resource for high school and college students making vocational decisions, for older adults considering vocational changes, and for all who teach and mentor in the area of vocational discernment and who help others sort out a commitment to professional ministry. The purpose of the Ministry Conference, and the sermons delivered at the event, intersects well with Abingdon's mission to help form pastors who will serve the church faithfully and effectively. The preachers are highly recognizable and respected individuals who will serve as trusted and wise guides for discerning a ministry vocation. They include Fred Craddock, Walter Brueggemann, Tom Long, Barbara Brown Taylor, and Brad Braxton. The volume includes an annotated bibliography of publications on ministry as a vocation, and a foreword by Dr. James T. Laney, former Ambassador to South Korea, President of Emory University, and Dean of Candler School of Theology. He is currently a faculty member of Emory's Center for Ethics. He chairs the United Board for Christian Higher Education in Asia, is a trustee of the Henry Luce Foundation, and chairs (with Andrew Young) The Faith and The City Program in Atlanta.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Excellent resource for vocational discernment  Mar 17, 2005
I highly recommend this book!

"Awakened to a Calling" is a collection of sermons by significant preachers (Brad Braxton, Barbara Brown Taylor, and Fred Craddock are among the contributors) that would be a great addition to theological libraries, church libraries, and personal libraries. It would especially be a perfect gift for Christians of any age who are contemplating a call to ministry.

Now, I say this more as a celebration than a disclaimer: as a fellow with The Fund for Theological Education, I had the opportunity to actually hear a number of these sermons preached. They were delivered in the context of conferences designed for undergraduate students considering ministry and graduate students beginning Master of Divinity studies. In other words, they speak directly to the fears and hopes of young people exploring a life of Christian service. The sermons are powerful enough to have enormous impact on the page; furthermore, Melissa Wiginton's Introduction offers readers a framework of emotional and spiritual support that is similar to that which was cultivated at the conferences themselves.
