The Crisis and Promise of Following Jesus Today
by Mark Labberton
"This book pursues the deeper questions of flourishing, sacrifice, community and transformation that are the heart of the Christian life."
—Andy Crouch, Executive Editor, Christianity Today; author of Playing God
Fuller Seminary's president Mark Labberton explores the question of "call" and how we as the Church and God's people are meant to respond to a broken and hurting world.
"Whatever our context, our work, our relationships -- this is the primary thing we are to be about every day: following Jesus."
"Mark Labberton sheds vivid light on life's ultimate path." —John Ortberg, senior pastor of Menlo Park Presbyterian Church and author of Soul Keeping
"We must now live our lives as God’s people in a context of exile—often the stranger, the counter-point, the one who now lives distinctively in the culture."

Silence is one of the sins of omission that has allowed us to be in denial about racism in our country, far more widespread than just one small Missouri town.
Watch Mark Labberton share his reflections on Called.
This is not just about our public vocation but about our vocation as Christians, regardless of our vocation.
Labberton’s voice is primarily pastoral. And that, I think, says something very important about him and his leadership of the flagship seminary of American evangelicalism.
Consider how different our world might be if each of the hundreds of millions of Americans who identify themselves as Christian took this call seriously.
Am I being consistent in my living out of the gospel at my work, at home, out and about in my community, when others are watching and when no one is watching? Are you?
What follows is a letter to Mark that takes some issue with his book. However it sounds, Mark, my genuine respect and love for you as Christian brother remain.
