Overview

The Calling is a short book written by an 86 year old maxillofacial surgeon who has been called by God to be a Christian author in his waning years. Having been a surgeon for the first 40 years of his life, then the Lord called him to be a medical device company president/CEO and Chris-tian minister/founder of a marriage ministry, but now to be a full time Christian author and lecturer. It is in fulfilling these various callings, with his wife, Lynne, that he has been given some insight to what the Lord is asking each of us to do in fulfilling the Great Commission. It is our honor and pleasure to dedicate this book to a very special great grand-son, Boadin Jay Johnson and to his parents, Paul and Chrissy Johnson, all of Minnesota. In Matthew 5:14, Jesus teaches, "You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid". In Matthew 5:16 he states, "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is heaven". That is the premise of this book. Our lives are to be dedicated to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and then as he proclaims in the Great Commission, we are to take our talents and our time and even our resources and go out from our Jerusalem to Judea and Samaria to the uttermost parts of the earth. It is in completing our Calling, that we will have accomplished the most for building his kingdom on earth and in so doing we will reap heavenly rewards as we enter that forthcoming, heavenly kingdom.
