Answer Your Call helps Christians discern their purpose from a Catholic perspective—think of it as a Catholic response to The Purpose Driven Life. Building on the premise that every person has a unique set of natural gifts meant to be used in concert with God's supernatural graces, readers will find practical insights on what prevents someone from hearing and responding to God's call, as well as how to reclaim and live their calling in the home, workplace, and community. Answer Your Call goes beyond mere theory, using key questions, short quizzes, and practical exercises to help the reader implement the material. You'll learn: What causes us to lose sight of God's presence; How we lose touch with our natural gifts; The three dimensions of our divine call; Understanding discernment in relation to purpose and call; How you can plan to implement your call. Interspersed with Scripture and Catechism quotes, as well as wisdom from popes and saints, Answer Your Call will guide you to carry out God's purpose in every dimension of your life.
