Book Review: The Echo Within

The Echo Within is a profoundly affecting, honest look at the myriad ways we are drawn into our life’s best work.  Written out of his own lifelong search for and response to the calling voice of God, Robert Benson recounts his discovery of the meaning of vocation, work, and purpose through the ups and downs inherent in family life, professional choice, and spiritual experience. With clarity and insight, and in the elegant prose for which he is known, he gently invites and encourages readers to find such deep truths for their lives as well. In particular, he illuminates the way for readers to explore:

·         ways to sense the Holy in our pursuits, both in the pursuits themselves and within ourselves.
·         how to fall into our vocation and chart a course toward it at the same time.
·         how to love the work we do, and the process of doing it.

For anyone beginning a new career or sensing a needed change in their life or wrestling with a transition suddenly thrust upon them, Robert Benson delivers wisdom, humor, and heart in what he’s learned about listening for The Echo Within—and how it can help us discover our calling.
