Nick Barrett on Books on Work and Vocation

Under the title, ‘The Crux of Work is the Crown of Vocation’, Nick Barrett reviews Ben Witherington’s Work: A Kingdom Perspective (Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 2011) and Gordon T. Smith’s Courage and Calling: Embracing Your God-Given Potential, rev. edn. (Downers Grove: IVP, 2011).

In summary, ‘Witherington's book offers a broader theoretical reflection on a theology of vocation’, while ‘Smith’s book offers an accessible and concrete guide to vocational discernment’, and ‘one could say the two books need each other’.
