    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...

    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...

    I couldn't stop reading this book when I first started reading. The words truly breathed life into my creative soul, reminding us all why it is that we create & that our work here on earth, even that of which we see as merely the mundane, is meant to bring glory and honor to God. T...

    A great challenge for creative and entrepreneurs Gives great case studies as well as practical tips and advice. Based firmly in real life experience and biblically grounded. A great book all round. :) Definitely consider reading this if you're struggling to motivate yoursel...

    This book exceeded my expectations! I thought I would feel the same way about my creativity after reading this - like it would just solidify what I?m already doing. Instead, it shifted my focus and helped me see ways to be creative even if I?m not making or doing something traditio...

    Good read. Good insights. Liked it overall. I found value. A tad bit exhaustive with "entrepreneur this" and "entrepreneur that" - almost to the extent that you feel unworthy if you've never started a business. Still a good read though - I recommended it to family and friends. ...

    This book was totally different than I thought it would be. If your starting a business or in a business and Christian It's a good book. I found it a interesting read. I received the book as a ARC. ...

    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 "...

    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...

    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 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 ...

    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...

    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...

    I couldn't stop reading this book when I first started reading. The words truly breathed life into my creative soul, reminding us all why it is that we create & that our work here on earth, even that of which we see as merely the mundane, is meant to bring glory and honor to God. T...

    A great challenge for creative and entrepreneurs Gives great case studies as well as practical tips and advice. Based firmly in real life experience and biblically grounded. A great book all round. :) Definitely consider reading this if you're struggling to motivate yoursel...

    This book exceeded my expectations! I thought I would feel the same way about my creativity after reading this - like it would just solidify what I?m already doing. Instead, it shifted my focus and helped me see ways to be creative even if I?m not making or doing something traditio...

    Good read. Good insights. Liked it overall. I found value. A tad bit exhaustive with "entrepreneur this" and "entrepreneur that" - almost to the extent that you feel unworthy if you've never started a business. Still a good read though - I recommended it to family and friends. ...

    This book was totally different than I thought it would be. If your starting a business or in a business and Christian It's a good book. I found it a interesting read. I received the book as a ARC. ...

    Fantastic book that points us back to our creator as ultimately the one we work for and need to work/create for. This book has challenged me to look beyond what I think my job is and what I am doing at it. It all has eternal significance. ...

    Informative, thoughtful, and well-meaning. A bit clinical at times, but the overall passion comes through the project as a whole. I've no doubt that the author could speak volumes on this subject, and look forward to the next efforts of his work. ...

    Excellant reminder of God?s love and purpose in me ...

    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 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...

    I couldn't stop reading this book when I first started reading. The words truly breathed life into my creative soul, reminding us all why it is that we create & that our work here on earth, even that of which we see as merely the mundane, is meant to bring glory and honor to God. T...

    A great challenge for creative and entrepreneurs Gives great case studies as well as practical tips and advice. Based firmly in real life experience and biblically grounded. A great book all round. :) Definitely consider reading this if you're struggling to motivate yoursel...

    This book exceeded my expectations! I thought I would feel the same way about my creativity after reading this - like it would just solidify what I?m already doing. Instead, it shifted my focus and helped me see ways to be creative even if I?m not making or doing something traditio...

    Good read. Good insights. Liked it overall. I found value. A tad bit exhaustive with "entrepreneur this" and "entrepreneur that" - almost to the extent that you feel unworthy if you've never started a business. Still a good read though - I recommended it to family and friends. ...

    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 "...

    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. ...

    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 ...

    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 ...
