Overview

The difference between going into the ministry at the age of 20 or 30, rather than 40 or 50, might simply be that someone asked sooner rather than later, 'Have you thought of being ordained' Especially when we are young, it is easy to feel that we might be inadequate for the job, but the Bible is encouragingly littered with stories of individuals who didn't feel up to what God called them to be! Hearing the Call stresses that our very humanness, our sense of inadequacy, can be a gift in ministry and allow God's grace to flow. Gordon Mursell's wise reflections on several relevant biblical passages wonderfully complement Jonathan Lawson's vivid recounting of his wide experience of young vocations. He illustrates this with real-life stories from young people he has counselled and encouraged.
