God calls us to a life that we could never imagine on our own.
Throughout the Bible, God interrupts the lives of ordinary men and women, calling and empowering them to lives of service they never could have imagined on their own! Discover how to hear and respond to the unique call God is placing on your life through the stories of ordinary people found in the Bible. Called examines the call stories of old and barren Abraham, young Samuel, the underestimated Esther and Mary Magdalene, reluctant Jonah, and the Beloved Disciple. The same God that called these unlikely characters calls you, too, to bring hope and transformation to the world.

What others are saying about the book:
Susan Robb is a gifted pastor and storyteller. In Called, she retraces the dramatic call stories of six biblical figures in a way that teaches, encourages, and inspires the reader as she or he seeks to discern and live into God’s call.Adam Hamilton, author of Simon Peter: Flawed by Faithful Disciple.
Susan Robb skillfully weaves personal and family stories with the familiar but ancient stories of men and women who have found their way to respond to God’s call. Called is a reminder that we all have a part to play in the ongoing story of Christianity and that God’s desire to include us is graciously insistent. Her words help us to listen for and consider that still small voice of invitation. Suzanne Stabile, author of The Path Between Us: An Enneagram Journey to Healthy Relationships.
Bright, winsome, talented, personable, committed, Susan is all of these and much, much more. We see it all in her writing as she shows us what it is really like to hear and grapple with God’s call. James W. Moore, author of Yes, Lord, I Have Sinned, But I Have Several Excellent Excuses!
Written in a refreshingly clear and eloquent style, Called weaves together the author’s personal stories, biblical insights and astute observations about contemporary life. Its depth of insight and practical approach make it ideal for small group study. Alyce M. McKenze, Le Van Professor of Preaching and Worship, Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University
