Product description


"John Stackhouse is one of North America's most significant evangelical theologians. An erudite, witty, and ambitious scholar who has written over a dozen books in a career spanning three decades, he should be better known on the U.S. side of the border The book is chock-full of wise apothegms and keen observations."-- David P. Gushee, Christian Century

"With extraordinary single-mindedness, John Stackhouse's discussion in Why You're Here revolves around four fundamental realities: call, shalom, Jesus Christ, and salvation. All human beings are called to seek shalom. Christians are called, in addition, to extend Christ's work of salvation. Single-minded but not simple-minded, Stackhouse recognizes the complexities of answering one's call in the real world. Yet he never allows the reader to lose sight of the signposts: shalom and salvation. Lucid, wise, and passionate."--Nicholas Wolterstorff, Noah Porter Professor Emeritus of Philosophical Theology, Yale University

"Stackhouse gently and astutely reminds us that Christian ethics are not simply about what's right or wrong, but rather what it truly means to be Christian in this world. He inspires us to understand that we can love God, our neighbor and ourselves, simultaneously, as we follow our life's calling - not only in our work, but in everything we do. I couldn't put it down, definitely a 'must read'!"--Bonnie Pruett Wurzbacher, Chief Resource Development Officer of World Vision International
