“The Calling” Free Downloadable Discussion Guide Available

Dear reader, I know I mention a lot of resources from Concordia Publishing House on this blog site, but, hey, it’s what I do and who I am. I have mentioned this resource to you a couple times previously, but I really do want to encourage the pastors reading this blog to consider this book for a parish-wide study. It is simply an excellent, faithful, deeply Christ-centered, Biblical resource that offers good, solid, practical help for folks looking to understand their life and what their calling is as they live it out. The author, Kurt Senske, offers a very easy to follow guide to sorting through the major issues we all face. He does so from a position that has been deeply informed by the work of Dr. Gene Edward Veith’s book on vocation and by other good Lutheran theological resources.

This book is being extremely well received and it is already into its second printing. A number of folks have said, “Can we get a discussion guide for the book?” We said, “Yup.” And so, here you go. We now have a free discussion guide to use with the book to make it even more accessible for group study, or for that matter, for the individual to use as he/she works through the book. Here is where you can download the guide.

This book is designed to educate readers on one’s vocation and what that means in terms of living out our life in our various and overlapping vocational arenas – family, professional, community, and congregational.  Throughout the book, what the true meaning of “success” is for a Christian is examined to help the reader discover and live out the life that God uniquely created for them.

The Calling: Live a Life of Significance

*Identify and avoid common mistakes
*Establish eight strategies for living a life of significance
*Set and attain goals
*Diminish your ego to enhance your ability to serve
*Lead a life of simplicity
*Care for yourself so that you are able to care for others
Dr. Kurt Senske serves as Chief Executive Officer of Lutheran Social Services of the South (LSS), as Chair of the Board of Directors of Thrivent Financial for Lutherans, and on the Board of Directors of Lutheran Services in America. He holds a law degree from the University of Illinois College of Law, a BS in Business Administration from Valparaiso University, a master’s degree in International Relations from Schiller International University in Paris, France, and a PhD in Government from the University of Texas at Austin.
Please also take a look at Dr. Senske’s web site. Great stuff there.
