Book Review: It’s Your Call

It’s Your Call: What Are You Doing Here, by Gary Barkalow “is not your typical how-to, tips-and-techniques book.”  According to the preface, on pages 15 and 16, “This book is not about what you can do, but about who you are.  This is not about what you are good at, but what the good is that God has created in you.  This is not about finding a job, but finding your life.  This book is not about finding a solution to the situation you are in, but about deciphering your life as it unfolds in and around that situation.”

By providing personal anecdotes mixed with scripture verses and various quotes, Barkalow shares interesting excerpts from his life, including his successes and mistakes throughout the years, as he searched to uncover his call in life.

According to the author’s bio, included on the back cover, Barkalow is the director and founder of The Noble Heart, “a ministry that helps men and women find their lives in God and their calling in this world.”  Throughout the book, it is evident that the author is passionate about helping others determine how to discover God’s calling for their lives and proceed to live that calling fully.

It’s Your Call seems to be written more for older adults, particularly those who are unsure about their place in life and who are willing to discover more.  However, it would be a great gift for recent high school or college graduates.  This book provides a feasible challenge for readers (of any age) to implement in their lives.

Note: I received this book from B and B Media, which is a program designed for bloggers to write book reviews in exchange for books, yet the opinions expressed in this review are my own.
