There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. I read this over the course of two days and will no doubt return to it, as I did a lot of highlighting of passages. I think this book is one of those that to appeciate you have to be at the right place in your own journey.
Some books just work that way.. I'm at the right place for these ideas so this is a definite keeper. Some of these concepts will stay with me. I've long felt the ability to look back and see God at work in the bigger picture of my life, even in the times I felt abandoned, and I like the imagery the author uses here of what I have always called "my next" my next job move as "Your next Assignment. There are some real gems in here.
I'm grateful to the reference in this book, also, to a truly spectacular little Sidney Potier movie I'd never seen or heard of until reading about it here! What a gift that movie was! The only reason this is a 4 instead of 5 stars is I think the book needs just a bit more editing. There was some repetition, several instances where the author introduced a quote as if for the first time I tend to do this when journaling, across time, I forget what I wrote some months ago.
So to give the author the benefit of the doubt, I'm guessing he wrote it, submitted to editors as chapters, over a period of time. One tiny exception I will take with the author, though. He shared a story about a seminar where they played a video of a man who had served as a janitor for 15 years, and he said he was appalled that everyone in the room thought that was great - why wasn't the guy aspiring to something different, something better?
It struck me as a sentiment completely at odds with this books purpose. What makes you think his work wasn't his heart's desire? Why would you assume because it was "just" a janitor that it was not in keeping with that man's glory? That example seemed really inconsistent with the thoughts and suggestions of the entire rest of the book. I know very few people that are truly fulfilled in their lives, myself included. A "quiet frustration" is evident in our lives and mannerisms. Gary has helped me reflect upon my life in general and my God given purpose specifically.
This is not a how to book, but a guide to becoming closer to your maker and discovering what He has designed and purposed your life to be. I have read this book four times, back to back and am now reading it again with my family. This, I believe, is a must read for every high school student and young adult. None of us will ever be truly happy without fulfilling our call! I have struggled for decades with what my purpose is as a Christian. I have been exposed to so many good teachings that are applicable to every Christian, and some that help identify your unique calling.
As SamWill said, this one nails it. Gary gets to the real heart of a man and helps you mine that shaft for all the gold God has placed in it. It has been a primary help for me to identify who I am as well as who I am not. That gives me the freedom to pursue what God has truly written on my heart without having to live up to the expectations of those around me.
As a former pastor of mine once said, "You don't have to train a lion to be dangerous, you just let him be himself without any shackles, and he will have his effect on everything around him. He did several forty minute talks throughout the weekend, but a lot of time was spent doing hands-on group work. I found this book helpful as it gave the group work more meaning and a foundation.
Reading the book was useful because of the biblical examples and quotes used by people like CS Lewis, or quotes from movies like 'Finding Forrester'. The information in the book wasn't new, b In I was on a course taught by Gary Barkalow; a three day practical way of helping to discover your calling. The information in the book wasn't new, but it was drawn out in a way that deepened my understanding of one's calling and glory in general.
It provided more insight into Gary Barkalow's journey and how important our own journey is, as well as how God speaks to us in regards to our calling. I found a few of the chapter's a bit long and difficult to get through, but that was possibly more on my side rather than the book itself. All in all, a great book that I think a lot of people would benefit from; it really opens your eyes and reassures you that doing God's work doesn't have to be draining or a struggle, but that God has something in mind for us that energises and lifts up.
Feb 05, Gary B rated it really liked it Shelves: Some great concepts and encouragement to see the bigger picture or weightiness and glory of our lives, and of how we need to contribute that with humility, gentleness and patience. I didn't find the book to be cohesive, but that may be a reflection of me rather than the author or the book.
I suspect part of the reason is that I wasn't quite ready to read that book now. It may be one I need to come back to in the near future and pick up what I missed the first time through. Jan 03, Laura rated it liked it. What are you doing here? While he might not be able to talk to you personally, by the time you're through reading his book, I believe you'll have a pretty good idea of why you are here and what your purpose is in this life.
However, some of the wording might set your spidey sense on tingling. Sharing his own story of finding his call, Barkalow takes the reader through scripture and his insights on how he came What are you doing here? Sharing his own story of finding his call, Barkalow takes the reader through scripture and his insights on how he came to realize that everybody has a "weightiness" to their lives. He called this weightiness or purpose "our glory".

A rather unusual term and one that made me squirm. He talked about our glory and letting it shine. I get that - we are to be a light to the world. But Barkalow insists we each have our own glory and God put it there for us to discover and allow Him to use. In other words, our glory is our calling or purpose in life. But this isn't a book on six easy steps to finding your calling or purpose in life. The author wants you to discover that for yourself. By looking at your deepest desires, your interests and what you most like to do. Now, with all books, read this one with caution and compare it with scripture to see if it stands up.
Because even after reading this entire book, I still have this seed of doubt in regards to how Barkalow defines "our glory". It sounds strongly like we should be chasing after our dreams and desires and that is not biblical.

While the author insists that is not what his book is about he also says, "What you were created to do is what you most want to do. Your calling in life comes in the form of your strongest desire. I may be out in left field on this one, but until I am, I cannot in good conscience recommend this book. Feb 11, Jennifer Grosser rated it really liked it. This book was a Kindle freebie a few years back, and I don't think I had any expectations, good or bad. Turned out to be a pretty great book, though!
The idea of call is one of those ideas I've been mulling over a lot lately. The topic is addressed in a personable, popular style. Barkalow ties in the concept of a person's call with that of a person's glory another concept I've been considering a LOT. He effectively describes the forces and impulses that hinder our connection with God and our mo This book was a Kindle freebie a few years back, and I don't think I had any expectations, good or bad.
He effectively describes the forces and impulses that hinder our connection with God and our movement into His calling on our lives. I found the book quite inspiring, and if number of highlighted passages is an indication of endorsement, then this one is right up there. Jul 01, Samuel rated it it was amazing. This is a great book for anyone wanting to understand themselves and their calling in and to the world. I have read no better book on Calling. This is a great place to start if you are seeking to clarify who God is calling you to become. May 18, John H.

Aug 01, Bruceandjackygmail. Com rated it it was ok. Writing style didn't engage me. This book was so timely for me because I have struggled with so many of the issues in it related to calling. Now I have some light to walk by. Sep 29, christianchicklit rated it liked it. The book can be summarized in these few ideas: God gives us enough clarity to keep us encouraged and moving but enough mystery to keep us coming back for more.

It's Your Call Quotes
Lewis and Victor Frankl, as well as ideas from the author as well. Barkalow disavows the idea that our calling can be our career, role as spouse or parent, or job within the church. He wants readers to dig much deeper and figure out what it is that brings them the most joy and brings glory to God. It's not an easy subject, but Barkalow takes a completely new look at this oft-discussed topic. I enjoyed his intelligent writing and as inspired by his leading.
It's a great book! Sep 21, David rated it it was amazing. A great book to help determine God's call on one's life. In reading it I discovered that what I had thought was my call for many years really wasn't. Instead, it was one of the ways my real calling was being expressed.
