a Formationa (TM) has become an increasingly popular concept in the Christian churches in recent years. It is used frequently in relation to education and training for ministry, and also to describe the personal and spiritual growth of individuals and congregations. Yet until now it has lacked clear definition.
Responding to God's Call explores formation as the ways in which Christians are shaped for vocation, and the ways in which we hear and respond to God's call.
This ground breaking book is an essential resource for all with responsibility for nurturing discipleship and vocation - whether it is our shared call to grow into the fullness of our baptismal calling, or a distinctive vocation to ordained or lay ministry.
