In this short, helpful book Douglas Brouwer offers a personal, spiritual response to the vocational questions that people commonly ask. He links our true purpose to following Jesus' greatest commandment -- love God and love your neighbor -- and points out that we find meaning and purpose by living not for ourselves but for something larger outside ourselves.
Written for seekers of all ages, "What Am I Supposed to Do with My Life?" describes Brouwer's own struggle to come to grips with the concept of vocation, incorporates inspirational stories of people and vocation from throughout his ministry, and includes discussion questions at the end of each chapter.
Whether used for personal reading or small-group study, "What Am I Supposed to Do with My Life?" will encourage many to reflect meaningfully on their lives and vocations.
About the Author
More About the Author
On my first day at IPC I knew that I had a story to tell, and I talked my publisher into publishing that story. The book is now finished and will be making its way through a lengthy editorial process I do not fully understand. I will keep you posted about publication dates through my blog.
I have been a writer ever since I won second prize in a "prose and poetry" contest in fifth grade and got to read my submission at an all-school assembly. I'm also a pastor, as I mentioned, and over the course of more than 35 years I have served churches in New Jersey, Illinois, Michigan, and Florida. I did my undergraduate work in philosophy at Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I received my master's and doctoral degrees from Princeton Theological Seminary in Princeton, New Jersey.
I am a husband, father, and grandfather. My older daughter is an associate pastor at the Westminster Presbyterian Church in Minneapolis, and my younger daughter is a Ph.D. student in health economics at the University of Washington in Seattle. Both of them are married and live too far away.
