When the Spirit Calls


A bridge-building book written with the graciousness of spirit of classic Quaker writers, Thomas Kelly and Douglas Steere. This is destined to become a new Quaker classic with its depths of insight on call and discernment.

~Carole Dale Spencer, Portland Seminary of George Fox University


Most centrally, this is a book about call and discernment, but Jay Marshall offers more, grounding these in an understanding of universal ministry and sacramental living, and inviting readers into a practice of honest openness that leads to clarity, interior freedom, and courage to embrace new and unexpected forms of ministry.
