What Am I Supposed to Do with My Life?: Asking the Right Questions

Front Cover
Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing, 2006 - Religion - 111 pages

All of us long for a sense of meaning and purpose in our lives. But where does meaning come from? In What Am I Supposed to Do with My Life? Douglas Brouwer presents a spiritual response to the vocational questions people ask in a personal, highly readable way. He locates our true purpose in following Jesus' greatest commandment: love God and love your neighbor. Brouwer points out that for most people, this high calling is all the vocation they will ever need.

This excellent small volume is a great contribution to the growing contemporary interest in vocation. It should enable both individuals and small groups to reflect carefully on true Christian vocation.
