Book Review on Callings
Ever wondered what to do with your life? Are you living the life you were meant to live? Do callings in life present themselves as blessings or curses to you? These questions and many like them are addressed in Callings: Finding and Following an Authentic Life.
Business author Gregg Michael Levoy combines psychology, philosophy, theology, and sociology to motivate his readers to seek their true purpose in life. Emphasizing the fundamental skill of listening, Levoy writes “the discipline of paying close attention to …the vital signs that blip across the screen of our lives in forms such as dreams, intuitions, feedback, and longings, will help us know what our calls are.”
Levoy combines compassion with a direct writing style to help us find clarity in our callings, to effectively address conflict in our relationships, to learn how to read our dreams, and how to listen to what our bodies are telling us for the purpose of creating a purposeful present and a meaningful future. He weaves in the stories of others, how they pursue and overcome, and how they learn from life’s experiences to better discern their life callings.
Whether you are a student, successful business person, or nearing retirement, Callings will help you to develop tools and determine pathways that give meaning to your circumstances, thoughts, emotions, and experiences. Levoy’s ultimate goal is to enable you to invoke or call into personal experience the life that you were meant to live. Be blessed by saying yes to your calling.
