What is it like to be "called" by God for a particular purpose? What can you learn for your own life of faith from such a calling?
Through a series of personal anecdotes, illuminating conversations, and candid reflections, Called brings you face-to-face not only with the world of C. S. Lewis, but also with the very real peaks and valleys of pursuing a calling. Seeking to reclaim the uniquely Christian sense of calling, Pemberton shows that God's call cannot be reduced to one's dreams, skills, or passions, vividly and powerfully illustrating how Christ turns ideas of failure and success on their head. Called will encourage you to realize God has entered into your story, calling out to you anew each day with the words, "Follow me," leaving you to ask, Will I be obedient to the calling set before me?
