Product Description: Why do musicians and other artists, have such a negative view of work? The Reformers had a lot to say about it and yet although they have greatly influenced the world (ever heard of the Protestant Work Ethic?) they had a better balanced view of it than we hold today. They preferred a different word for work - vocation. It means 'calling', and fills the notion of work with purpose, meaning, fulfillment, dignity, and even happiness. In the hands of the Reformers work transformed, or was re-formed, back to a place and a position God intended it to have. Today, for many, work has become a lesser god. If you want to bring it back into focus as it should be then let Stephen Nichols help.

"Christians may hold a job, but they are called to a vocation. The loss of a Christian concept of vocation has come at a great cost, leaving many Christians unsure of how their work is to relate to their Christian faithfulness. Stephen Nichols’ new book comes right on time – affirming and explaining the Christian understanding of vocation. Even as so many people are reconsidering their career opportunities and plans for the futures, What is Vocation? takes that question to a whole new level. In the end, faithfulness to Christ is what matters, and understanding our vocation is essential to Christian discipleship."
- Dr. R. Albert Mohler, Jr., President, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
