Read full description of the books:
I first read this book back in the late '90s and have proceeded to read it at least once a year annually since then. I am now on my fourth copy, having read two copies to tatters and loaned out a third to a good friend (who is undoubtedly affected enough by the material for me to not warrant asking for its return).
In paradoxically light yet profound way, "Callings" trolls the collective human consciousness for familiar and foreign concepts interwoven in history through such vehicles as fable, parable, mythology, spirituality, philosophy, and more that are meant to address such issues as:
* The existence of transformative "callings" in life
* How to distinguish the "true call from the siren song"
* Learning to appreciate and act upon the smallest signs and calls for change
* Do we have any obligations with regard to callings? If so, what would/could be the consequences?
Moreover, the author is blessed with an intoxicatingly addictive writing style that pulls from international historical, spiritual, and contemporary sources to paint the prose with a rainbow of multi-sensory literary hues. The information herein appeals to humanity on a larger, higher level for it is a common navigational thread throughout all of recorded existence and one that transcends denominations, political parties and even commercialized pop thought. It provides an avenue to understanding and embracing the ubiquitous human question we all (typically silently) ask. Very insightful and masterly written, "Callings" is a call to action for the armchair life enthusiast in all of us and proffers a host of relevant and accessible thought trains that will simultaneously entertain, stimulate, and bless the reader's mind with enrichment.
