Quarter-Life Calling: Pursuing Your God-Given Purpose in Your Twenties by Paul Sohn talks about discovering your calling and finding true meaning in life. Sohn uses experiences from his own life, including a “quarter-life crisis,” to help twentysomethings navigate through these formative years. He talks about how true success does not lie in money or status, but through a relationship with Jesus Christ.

Before reading this book, I wondered if it only be a good read for twentysomethings who feel successful and self-assured, rather than twentysomethings who feel lost in life. But in actuality, the book is good for all twentysomethings, because it is encouraging and inspiring. Sohn reminds readers that they can replace negative self-talk with Scripture, and that they are God’s Masterpiece. He explores what one’s “calling” means and delves into how to find a “vocational sweet spot.” Even the questions for reflection and discussion at the end of each chapter are helpful; one such question asks, “What can you do to become more attentive to the voice of God in your life?” It’s a good book.
