Calling in Today's World : Voices from Eight Faith Perspectives, Paperback / softback Book

Calling in Today's World : Voices from Eight Faith Perspectives Paperback / softback

Edited by Kathleen A. Cahalan, Douglas J. Schuurman

Description

The concept of "vocation" or "calling" is a distinctively Christian concern, grounded in the long-held belief that we find our meaning, purpose, and fulfillment in God.

But what about religions other than Christianity? What does it mean for someone from another faith tradition to understand calling or vocation?In this book contributors with expertise in Catholic and Protestant Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism and Daoism, and secular humanism explore the idea of calling in these various faith traditions.

The contributors each search their respective tradition's sacred texts, key figures, practices, and concepts for wisdom on the meaning of vocation.

By seeking comparative insights from diverse faith traditions, say Kathleen Cahalan and Douglas Schuurman, we can all increase and improve our efforts to build a better, more humane world.
