The Listening Heart

Thursday October 25th 2007, 3:03 am

I’m very pleased to learn that The Listening Heart: Vocation And the Crisis of Modern Culture, by the Baptist theologian A.J. Conyers, has been named one of the “Top Ten Religion Books of the Year” by the American Library Association’s BOOKLIST.

Earlier this year I posted two excerpts from the book (here and here). Conyers drew riches from the Church Fathers as he recovered the traditional (but long-lost) Christian sense of vocation — of each person’s “calling” from God.
