Until recently, theologians have been in a deep slumber about the subject of vocations. This volume represents one of the first awakenings in the theolgical community to this subject. The ten contributors, all theologians at Loyola University, Chicago, present original essays that explore vocations, or callings. As reflected in the diverse approach to the subject, theology is a multi-disciplinary, even interdisciplinary field. Some of the authors delve into scriptural materials to enlighten on the notion of call. Others discuss the mystery of vocation in terms of spirituality, history, doctrine, psychology, or theology. Adding to the volume's originality are essays written from a Jewish and Islamic perspective. The breadth and depth of these essays suggest how diverse this topic is for those who teach students or minister to parishoners, counsel clients or guide directees. The reflections presented here should be useful to them and should restore interested in this long-neglected subject. Although the approaches represented by the essays are many, the calling of each person is to the one God whose holiness is intended for all peoples.
