The Christian life begins when we hear and respond to the "call" of Jesus Christ. Like the first disciples of Jesus, we must then “leave everything” in order to follow the Master.

But, does that mean that I have to enter what is commonly called "full-time Christian service"? How can I devote myself to a witness for Jesus Christ when I have to spend so much time and energy doing an "ordinary" job?

The author believes that the lives of many Christians have been disfigured by the thought that the only valid way for a believer to live is to be engaged in some sort of "Christian" career. In fact, God calls the vast majority of Christians to serve him wherever they are, wherever he has placed them, in the shop or in the office, in the store or on the job site. This book shows that instead of dissecting life into compartments ("spiritual" and "secular"), it is better to view each moment that is given to us as an opportunity to live fully for the glory of God. A welcome antidote for a modern Church.
