4-Week Study of Os Guinness' The Call

Join dean Pete Peterson as he leads a four-week study on the book, speaking from personal experience about how this "new pair of glasses" can help us see our lives and future career choices in new ways. While the book and this study will focus more on the Christian origins of calling, this study is open to all students, faculty, and staff.

About The Call

The Call - Os Guinness

The Call continues to stand as a classic, reflective work on life's purpose. Best-selling author Os Guinness goes beyond our surface understanding of God's call and addresses the fact that God has a specific calling for our individual lives.

Why am I here? What is God's call in my life? How do I fit God's call with my own individuality? How should God's calling affect my career, my plans for the future, my concepts of success? Guinness now helps the reader discover answers to these questions, and more, through a corresponding workbook—perfect for individual or group study.

According to Guinness, "No idea short of God's call can ground and fulfill the truest human desire for purpose and fulfillment." With tens of thousands of readers to date, The Call is for all who desire a purposeful, intentional life of faith.


Registration is limited.  All who register should commit to making the four sessions, and each will receive a free copy of the book.

The event is cosponsored by the Christianity and Public Policy (CPP) student organization.
