Invites us to recognize - and respond - to our own unique vocations.
Ears to Hear takes readers on a journey through the Old Testament, showing the way God called ordinary people to service, and drawing parallels for ordinary people in the twenty-first century. The story of Abraham, who was called away from his homeland with no clear destination, exemplifies the insecurity of modern-day readers who may be called to abandon the security of their homes or their jobs to do God's will. The story of Moses, who was armed with a list of serious-and logical-objections to God's call, is a lesson for contemporary readers faced with seemingly insurmountable obstacles to their vocations. In each of these stories, Little shows that God's call-in Old Testament days and now-is always accompanied with more than enough grace to answer it.
Each chapter concludes with a set of discussion questions, making this an ideal book not only for individuals discerning God's call, but also for parish study groups.
