`Formation' has become an increasingly popular concept in the Christian churches in recent years. It is used frequently in relation to education and training for ministry, and also to describe the personal and spiritual growth of individuals and congregations. Yet until now it has lacked clear definition. Responding to God's Call explores formation as the ways in which Christians are shaped for vocation, and the ways in which we hear and respond to God's call. This ground breaking book is an essential resource for all with responsibility for nurturing discipleship and vocation - whether it is our shared call to grow into the fullness of our baptismal calling, or a distinctive vocation to ordained or lay ministry.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This is a deep, profound and wise book: deep because it explores the realities of the Christian way; profound because it engages with the wonders of Christian truth; wise because it shows us how to step more fully into the gracious life of Christ. -- Christopher Cocksworth, Bishop of Coventry
It is rare to find an author who can capture the nature of vocation with such care and candour, and articulate what a sense of God's call to ministry might actually be about. Jeremy Worthen has combined his deep pastoral wisdom, grounded spirituality and superb scholarly insight to bring us a book that is rich, accessible and wise. -- Martyn Percy, Principal, Ripon College Cuddesdon
No one could fail to benefit from this clear and accessible study and to be changed by it - it's a portable retreat. Searching and profound, yet gently and companionable, this is a distinguished book and should be read by Christians of all traditions, especially those involved in formal ministry or considering it. -- Paul Avis, Canon Theologian, Exeter Cathedral
This book emerges from years of experience and offers a thoughtful, wise and learned approach to the vital topic of how people can be formed as Christians in a complex and fast-changing world. -- Graham Tomlin, Dean, St Mellitus College
In this elegantly written book Jeremy Worthen weaves together theology, psychology and biblical exegesis to present a finely crafted insight into the process of Christian formation today. I heartily commend it to all readers but in particular anyone who has ever asked themselves the question: 'What is God calling me to in my life?' -- Peter Tyler, Reader in Pastoral Theology and Spirituality, St Mary's University College
