Overview


"What a pleasure to read David Spangler's book...His words are full of heart, wisdom, sensitivity, and discernment." --Thomas Moore, bestselling author of Care of the Soul

Who am I? Why am I here? What is my life about? These are the universal questions that David Spangler addresses in his inspiring new book, The Call. By recognizing the basic human need to be a part of something larger than ourselves, a yearning for direction and meaning, Spangler reinterprets the classic concept of the spiritual calling for today's readers. His words are simple and few, but his message is powerful. David Spangler's The Call is not only "a gentle sermon" (Minneapolis Star Tribune), but "an opportune springboard to examining one's direction in life, and to redefining one's purpose and plan" (NAPRA Review).

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Drawing on New Age learning and personal experience in both community living and channeling for spirit beings, Spangler (Everyday Miracles, Bantam, 1996) meditates on the idea of the spiritual call and its place in the quest for identity. His essays are based on talks given at a retreat. The first, introductory essay is the most personal and universally appropriate. He asserts that all of us share a common call to be connected to the larger spiritual life of the universe. Life consists of a multiplicity of calls that draw us out and help us to define ourselves. The primal call is the call to love. Spangler addresses the longing for a call as well as forms of resistance to being called. Eventually, he says, we create our own callings by our self-giving actions, though he does not specify how. His work is an intimate "keepsake" book, while Dick Bolles's essay "How To Find Your Mission in Life," (Ten Speed Pr., 1996) reprinted from his What Color Is Your Parachute, answers the same questions more concretely and satisfyingly.-John R. Leech, Brooklyn, N.Y.
