From the Back Cover
According to Schuurman, many Christians today find it both strange and difficult to interpret their social, economic, political, and cultural lives as responses to God's calling. To renew this biblical perspective, Schuurman argues, Christians must recover the language, meaning, and reality of life as vocation, and his book helps do just that.
Developed in dialogue with audiences as diverse as college students, industrial workers, business leaders, church leaders, and professional theologians and ethicists, the book examines the theological and ethical dimensions of vocation as these have been understood historically and in relation to our modern social setting.

The book has three main outlined themes. First, all aspects of life are holy. Second, duties are to be governed by God's will. Third, officials are God's representatives. Drawing heavily on the writings of Luther and Calvin, he provides diverse views on the subject and articulates clear arguments for his conclusions. Vocation is the best resource I've read on the subject and I would highly recommend it to those considering the topic.
