Do You Feel Called by God?

Full Product Description

Michael Bennett challenges the misconception that, to go into full time ministry you have to able to ‘prove’ a clear calling from God. He argues that often such a call is subjective to the ‘called’ and is unbiblical anyway. A reassurance to anyone puzzled over whether or not the ministry is calling them, the author draws on his own first steps towards ordained Christian ministry.

With honest openness he recalls the dread of being asked whether he 'felt called' because, as he reveals, he didn't. Only years later, after deep biblical research, did he feel comfortable that the common idea of needing to feel a subjective call from God before entering the ministry is misguided and unbiblical.

In 'Do You Feel Called by God?' Micahel shares his story, including the evidence that changed his mind. Full of humour, personal biography and clear biblical teaching, he provides an encouraging challenge not only to those considering full-time ministry, but also to all Christians who want to hear and respond to the call of God.

Do You Feel Called by God? by Michael Bennett was published by Matthias Media in March 2013 and is our 36707th best seller. The ISBN for Do You Feel Called by God? is 9781921896989.

Full of wit, personal biography and clear biblical teaching, Do You Feel Called by God? provides an encouraging challenge not only to those considering full-time ministry, but also to all Christians who want to hear and respond to the call of God.
