MANY PEOPLE, says Fraser Dyer,  ask themselves: Why Do I Do This Every Day? They are disaffected with their careers, and wonder how and where they could find more satisfying work. His paperback (Lion, £7.99 ( £7.20); 0-7459-5171-6) draws on real-life stories as it redefines the idea of vocation.

Stories from real people also feature in The Volunteer Revolu-tion: Unleashing the power of everybody by Bill Hybels (Zondervan,  £7.50 (£.6.75); 0-310-25711-5). We can live selfishly for ourselves, he says, or we can join God 's mission and work to help others.

Pete Gilbert, too, explores this theme, in his Walk the Walk: Radical holiness through discipleship (Crusade for World Revival, £7.99; 1-85345-321-8). The book seeks to help readers put faith into action,
to "transform your view of discipleship, and show you how great the extent of your life with God can be".

In When Your Husband Doesn't Believe, Jeri Odell talks of how to "hang on to your faith even when he doesn't", pray effectively, battle self-righteous attitudes, and demon-strate Christ to your children (CWR, £7.99 (£7.20); 1-85345-344-7).
