 General Description:

Book Description -
In the last five years more than one million people in forty-six counties have attended Matthew Kelly's talks, retreats, and seminars. Millions more have been touched by his writings and appearances on major radio and television programs worldwide. Young, charismatic, and extraordinarily engaging, Matthew Kelly comes to the aid of a generation desperately searching for some meaning in life deeper than the pursuit of material things. Exploring the challenges of our modern world, he brilliantly puts into context the unchanging truths and teachings of Jesus Christ. In A Call to Joy, he shares both his remarkable personal story and his uniquely inspiring insights on faith, love, and the trials and triumphs of the spiritual life.

From Beacon Publishing -
For one who wishes to open their minds and hearts to God's goodness, A Call to Joy is an indispensable handbook of Christian spirituality. A writer like Matthew Kelly is hard to come by, for he powerfully blends candid observation, and inspiring philosophy that brings his reader to new heights of realization. The result in A Call to Joy is a captivating and lucid writing that challenges each of us to change and to grow into the better people we know we can be. Kelly dares us to find ourselves in this book - to resist the pressures of the modern world, and to live the Christian life to the fullest. A Call to Joy is genuine, powerful, and deeply wise. Matthew Kelly's message in this book has broken new ground in the search for faith and meaning in the modern world - it extends an irresistible invitation to join him on an adventurous journey of the soul.

This item received 5 stars overall. Kelly teaches us how to recognize God's presence within us.

Matthew Kelly’s first book, Call to Joy: Living in the Presence of God, is a wonderful study of how God speaks to each of us in our lives and how we respond to him.

I read this book entirely while sitting in my car during soccer practice, carpool, etc.  Knowing the book was sitting in the car waiting for me encouraged me to leave early just so I could sit in the car and read for a longer period of time.  Matthew’s writing is beautifully comforting, peaceful, uplifting and encouraging.  We can all learn to listen to God’s call for our lives.  If we make prayer a priority in our lives and put God first, we will hear the message Full Review...
