The Fund for Theological Education (FTE) annually invites premier preachers to address a group of young adults who are considering a vocation in pastoral ministry. As part of the FTE's honoring of their outgoing president, Dr. James Waits, for his remarkable service, they have collected these superb sermons.

These eight sermons on vocation offer an important resource for high school and college students making vocational decisions, for older adults considering vocational changes, and for all who teach and mentor in the area of vocational discernment and who help others sort out a commitment to professional ministry.

The contributors include Fred Craddock, Walter Brueggemann, Tom Long, Barbara Brown Taylor, and Brad Braxton.

The volume includes an annotated bibliography of publications on ministry as a vocation.

"For anyone responding to a call to the ministry, this book will be an excellent guide." - Jimmy Carter, Thirty-ninth President of the United States and Nobel Peace Prize Winner
