This book really gives some wonderful insight into learning about yourself and how you operate in order to find a job/career field that will suit you. It was just kind of hard to follow sometimes.

This book isn't about finding jobs. This book isn't about work. This book is about finding out who God designed you to be and fulfilling your design.

I think I can safely say that I credit this book with changing my life! I read Finding a Job You Can Love in the midst of a job situation that felt wrong for me. I was excelling at my work, but I was having to work SO HARD. The same tasks that I was doing seemed to take so much less time and energy for my co-workers. And I was pretty miserable.

This book was one of a couple different books that I read as I was contemplating a career change. It was by far the best. This book was unique in that it

This book is a tremendous asset to anyone trying to figure out what to do with their life. The authors make the case that each of us have motivational patterns that have existed in us clear back to childhood. Once we figure out these motivational interests we can find applications (jobs, etc) to use them and be fulfilled.

The truly incredible thing about this short book is how much theology is crammed into it. Not only are the authors helping us discover what our motivations/passions are, but the

This was required reading for a class. I found it to be dated. Most of the information I already knew just from hearing different people speak at church or conferences, so nothing new here. It was just okay.

Read for school, but ended up loving for pleasure. Fantastic read.

It has good points, but is slightly out-dated and has some questionable theology.

Great book on examining your past and finding out how God has wired you. You are pretty much the same person you were at birth--just more mature.

This book wasn't quite what I was expecting, but I was delightfully surprised by it! Rather than discussing lots of boring details about how to find a job, this book discussed how to discover the purpose and passions that God has instilled in you. It was encouraging, challenging, and very thought provoking. I think I would have enjoyed it more if I had read it at my own pace. Instead, I had to cram it into a few days for a college course. ;) All in all, Finding a Job You Can Love was a great boo ...more
