    Are you called to create? In this stunning, and possibly ground-breaking, book by Jordan Raynor, we find that there is such a thing as being "Called to Create". I've been a creative person from the start. Growing up in a home where my father is an artists and musician and my moth...

    This book has changed my perspective about the eternal value of all the things I create, such as in my scrapbooking, baking, writing, and other things throughout the day. I highly recommend this book to all entrepreneurs, creatives, and all those in full time ministry. He begins with "...

    We are all creative in some manner. We all create processes, routines, or methods for our jobs (whether paid or unpaid). We all must figure out how to best juggle various roles and responsibilities, without failing miserably in any of them. We all must effectively adapt prior-learned s...

    This book is not quite what I anticipated, based on the title. I thought the book would deal with being creative in general. Raynor, however, has focused this book on only one aspect of being creative, being an entrepreneur. I was surprised at Raynor beginning his book by saying God...

    For Christian artists who have been told their creation isn?t valuable enough, not religious enough, not evangelical enough, or has no eternal significance....this book is for you. And it will change the way you think about your work. ...

    Great book for Christian Entrepreneurs This book was so good. It was motivating, uplifting, and knowledgeable. It was also nice that it was a book for Christian entrepreneurs. ...

    As a creator and aspiring entrepreneur who gets to work a day job supporting other creators, I was so excited to get my hands on Jordan Raynor's book Called to Create, out this month from Baker Publishing. Raynor presents the biblical case for creators, innovators, and risk takers t...

    I loved this book! I never looked at God?s creation of the Universe and us as him being an entrepreneur. I?m guilty of creating my business The Resume Studio as a means to make a living but never as something he put into my heart to serve Him and do his work. This book not only ope...

    Have you ever read a book where you thought, Man this person is smarter than I am? That is exactly what I think of when I talk to people about "Called to Create." This book doesn't make you feel intimated, but rather it brings you on journey of a Biblical perspective of what it means t...

    I'm not super into non-fiction. I'll read it and enjoy it, but it's not often that a non-fiction book grabs me and interests me like this one did. It was incredible! As someone working towards being a professional photographer and attempting to start a baseball program, there were ...

    Jordan Raynor?s new book joins the growing list of contemporary books which debunk the ?Christian? notion that work is secular and only full-time Christian ministry is sacred. Raynor?s angle in Called to Create is that the Bible first introduces God as Creator, the original ent...

    This book was very inspiring, challenging and compelling to read with also giving you more confidence and power up of your ability changing life to be the greatest one of God had been creating us by to be continue on his work and the as a entrepreneur to fulfill Jesus? command to cre...

    I first heard of this book through the author's Instagram page, @calledtocreate, and was intrigued by the premise--the fact that "all work is meaningful and can be used by God to accomplish his will"--including creative work, like writing, making art and music, and creating businesses....

    Summary: A view of creative, entrepreneurial work as a good calling from God, and the challenges and opportunities of pursuing entrepreneurial work for the glory of God. We celebrate them when they are successful--the Steve Jobs, Elon Musks, and Oprah Winfrey's of the world. They ar...

    Rating - If you are looking for something Level - Easy, moderate length Summary The book is basically an argument that all Christian are called to create in come way or another. For the hypothesis to work, Raynor needs to play around with definitions and stretch a little bit t...

    For years, my husband has said that if he were ever to write a book, it?d be about being called to create. He - and I - strongly believe that because we are made in the image of God, we are called to create. Because of that, when I saw the title of Jordan Raynor?s book, Called ...

    A new addition to the non-fiction market has been released through Baker publishing, and is entitled ?Called to Create: A Biblical Invitation to Create, Innovate, and Risk? by Jordan Raynor.  It is written especially for Christian entrepreneurs who want their work to feel more lik...

    This book wasn't exactly what I expected, but it was still good. It's pretty clear about a couple of things... some that are obvious and some that aren't so, but I think they are all true. ? God is creative - and all of us are created in His Image so we are all creative in one way ...

    I met Kate last year at the Five Minute Friday Retreat and online even before that. Her calm demeanor is a testament to her years of cross-cultural challenges and being ?stretched across the Atlantic?, as Kate herself tells in her book. This book is a very beautifully written me...

    Great book for the creative and the entrepreneur at heart, done so through the Christian worldview. Raynor presents a great argument on how we can view our finite work as having eternal value and significance. This tension can often be confusing for Christians so it's refreshing to hea...

    As other reviewers have mentioned this is more about being a business entrepreneur than fine art (which is my main interest). There is overlap and it's worth reading if you are a Christian Artist struggling with the 'why' behind our time and energy spent on creating art. I most appreci...

    This is a great book, but it didn?t go the way I was hoping/expecting it would. It is definitely geared towards the techie start-up type (probably because that?s who the author is). As an artist I came to the book hoping it centered in on creating in a more strictly artistic way. I...

    Really enjoyed this book that focuses on a biblical view of creation and innovation. The author does an excellent job of presenting scriptural basis and how we are to use our God-given gifts to create no matter what our position or skills. The author also presents various individua...

    This book has changed my entire outlook on my creativity. When you create for profit you soon question so many aspects of what your doing. This book answered so many questions, but at the same time inspired me into new directions and with a great sense of purpose. This is a book that...

    Called to Create by Jordan Raynor is now one of my top picks for faithful creatives. Jordan does an amazing job reminding us why creating is so important to our Creator, and why our work matters. It?s especially valuable for those of us who work in a secular market who often struggle...

    It definitely gravitates more toward entrepreneurs than creatives in general, but I was able to pull some nuggets from the first half of the book. Jordan quotes a lot of great authors and entrepreneurs. He brings attention to some very important reflections we need to have on the ?wh...

    Called to Create was such a timely book to read. I work in let?s say corporate America, but have always been passionate about my art and entrepreneurial ventures. Jordan?s book gave me hope and inspiration. He disbands the myth of ministry in the pulpit or media crew. Ministry is t...

    This book is full of examples of entrepreneurs and how the think. But the ending is by far the most inspiring part of the entire book! It brought tears to my eyes as I realized the high-calling it is to create. Don?t skip the rest of the book to get to the end though. You have to rea...

    For years, my husband has said that if he were ever to write a book, it?d be about being called to create. He - and I - strongly believe that because we are made in the image of God, we are called to create. Because of that, when I saw the title of Jordan Raynor?s book, Called ...

    This book wasn't exactly what I expected, but it was still good. It's pretty clear about a couple of things... some that are obvious and some that aren't so, but I think they are all true. ? God is creative - and all of us are created in His Image so we are all creative in one way ...

    I met Kate last year at the Five Minute Friday Retreat and online even before that. Her calm demeanor is a testament to her years of cross-cultural challenges and being ?stretched across the Atlantic?, as Kate herself tells in her book. This book is a very beautifully written me...

    Great book for the creative and the entrepreneur at heart, done so through the Christian worldview. Raynor presents a great argument on how we can view our finite work as having eternal value and significance. This tension can often be confusing for Christians so it's refreshing to hea...

    As other reviewers have mentioned this is more about being a business entrepreneur than fine art (which is my main interest). There is overlap and it's worth reading if you are a Christian Artist struggling with the 'why' behind our time and energy spent on creating art. I most appreci...

    This is a great book, but it didn?t go the way I was hoping/expecting it would. It is definitely geared towards the techie start-up type (probably because that?s who the author is). As an artist I came to the book hoping it centered in on creating in a more strictly artistic way. I...

    Really enjoyed this book that focuses on a biblical view of creation and innovation. The author does an excellent job of presenting scriptural basis and how we are to use our God-given gifts to create no matter what our position or skills. The author also presents various individua...

    This book has changed my entire outlook on my creativity. When you create for profit you soon question so many aspects of what your doing. This book answered so many questions, but at the same time inspired me into new directions and with a great sense of purpose. This is a book that...

    Called to Create by Jordan Raynor is now one of my top picks for faithful creatives. Jordan does an amazing job reminding us why creating is so important to our Creator, and why our work matters. It?s especially valuable for those of us who work in a secular market who often struggle...

    This is a great book, but it didn?t go the way I was hoping/expecting it would. It is definitely geared towards the techie start-up type (probably because that?s who the author is). As an artist I came to the book hoping it centered in on creating in a more strictly artistic way. I...

    Really enjoyed this book that focuses on a biblical view of creation and innovation. The author does an excellent job of presenting scriptural basis and how we are to use our God-given gifts to create no matter what our position or skills. The author also presents various individua...

    Called to Create by Jordan Raynor is now one of my top picks for faithful creatives. Jordan does an amazing job reminding us why creating is so important to our Creator, and why our work matters. It?s especially valuable for those of us who work in a secular market who often struggle...

    This book is full of examples of entrepreneurs and how the think. But the ending is by far the most inspiring part of the entire book! It brought tears to my eyes as I realized the high-calling it is to create. Don?t skip the rest of the book to get to the end though. You have to rea...

    Called to Create is a book that will make you rethink the eternal value of all the things you create from writing, baking, scrapbooking, and designing. This book is centered on Scripture and how to focus everything that you creative with God?s word. I really enjoy reading the persona...

    It wasn't really what I expected but there are some unique and deep thoughts about how being a business owner is serving the kingdom of God. It didn't have as much impact to my "writer soul" as I was seeking, but it definitely speaks to the entrepreneur. Since I still have trouble iden...

    This is a great book, but it didn?t go the way I was hoping/expecting it would. It is definitely geared towards the techie start-up type (probably because that?s who the author is). As an artist I came to the book hoping it centered in on creating in a more strictly artistic way. I...

    Really enjoyed this book that focuses on a biblical view of creation and innovation. The author does an excellent job of presenting scriptural basis and how we are to use our God-given gifts to create no matter what our position or skills. The author also presents various individua...
