Listening for God's Call: Discipleship and Ministry provides a general introductory text for theological reflection on the call of God. It begins by exploring the idea of listening to the call of God, which is at the heart of the Christian gospel. The opening chapter sets God's call in the context of Mark's Gospel and the call of the disciples. Other topics include:
*God's call in the Bible
*discipleship in today's Church
*called to be lay
*called to reader and local preacher ministry
*called to ministry as priest and presbyter
*called to pioneer ministries
*called to self-supporting ministry.
Susan Jones's 'Listening For God's Call' seeks to introduce theological reflection on vocation. Jones grounds this reflection in scriptural narratives... This book takes readers on a whistlestop tour through Anglican and Methodist documents and decisions regarding the many forms of public discipleship. Firmly egalitarian about the ministries of the whole people of God, Jones anchors each discussion in the call to be disciples of Christ. -- Erin Clark, Orion Edgar * Church Times *
