Johnson begins by relating several stories of both laypersons and clergy who have experienced Godís call. He does so in order to underscore two significant points: God is still calling believers today, just as he did in earlier times, and Godís empowering call extends to clergy and laity alike. In the rest of the book Johnson explores various aspects of the call, offering spiritually wise observations on how best to discern and respond to the voice of God.
Although Hearing Godís Call is about a serious spiritual subject, Johnson never discusses it in a vague or nebulous fashion but always anchors it in instructive particulars. He uses numerous relevant anecdotes to illustrate his principal points, and he provides a thoughtful series of discernment exercises at the end of each chapter. The book concludes with an appendix that examines prominent biblical figures who experienced Godís call, including Peter, Paul, John the Baptist, and Mary, the mother of Jesus.
Filled with rich spiritual insights, many inspirational stories, and much practical advice, this book will help anyone seeking to hear Godís call with greater clarity and act on it with greater conviction.
