Overview

The scandal of Christian faith is that baptized men and women are anointed to actually stand in the place of Jesus, the risen Christ, in our world today. What does this life-changing reality mean for you? In Anointed for a Purpose, author and vocational consultant Mary Sharon Moore explores the invitation and the challenge of living an anointed Christ-centered life.

Part 1, ?Becoming Anointed,? addresses the lifelong work of Confirmation in the context of relationship with God, with self and Christian community, and with the world. Part 2, ?Living the Anointed Life,? explores the vocational dimensions of living the anointed life, including how to discern a calling to Christian single, celibate, or married life; the distinctions between career and calling; and the work of peacemaking which lies at the core of Christian life.

This book is a ?must read? not only for young adults wrestling with identity and place within the church and the world but for mature adults confronting the deeper issues of purpose and meaning when life?s plans give way to the mystery of God?s willing.
