Item description for Crossroads: Navigating Your Calling and Career by Colin Creel...

Overview
In "Crossroads," Creel seeks to navigate the murky waters of career and calling by looking at the biblical view of calling, recognizing that everyone is here for a reason, and offering practical guidelines on seizing career opportunities.

Publishers Description

Graduating college. Landing that first job. Considering a job change-or even a career change. When we find ourselves at such crossroads, it is important to stop and reflect before taking the next step. In Crossroads, author Colin Creel seeks to navigate the murky waters of career and calling by looking at the biblical view of calling, recognizing that each of us is here for a reason, and offering practical guidelines on seizing career opportunities.

In addition to the author's thoughts, readers will encounter advice from leaders in business, Christian ministry, the arts, and education. Each chapter's "Points to Ponder" encourage readers to go deeper in their thoughts and discussions on the subject of calling and career. Readers are reminded that none of us is here by accident, and there are no accidental occupations. Everyone must pursue the talents and gifts God has afforded them.

With original insights from Christian leaders like... Josh McDowell, Steve Arterburn, Max Lucado, Tammy Trent, Mark Price, and others

Reviews - What do customers think about Crossroads: Navigating Your Calling and Career?

A thought-provoking read for any Christian in the workplace.  Apr 14, 2008
Colin Creel is dean of junior boys at Wesleyan School in Norcross, Georgia. In addition to his role as dean, he also teaches Bible and coaches swimming. Besides this work under review, he has also written Perspectives: A Spiritual Life Guide For Twentysomethings (Orlando, FL: Relevant Books, 2005). You may visit Colin's web site at [...].

Each of us wonders at one time or another, what we will be when we grow up. It seems that when we finally grow up, many of us continue to question the choices we have made in relation to our calling and our career. This book will be a worthwhile resource for both the novice and the seasoned professional, who might be wrestling with these sorts of questions.

The book is divided into two sections. Part one considers topics related to calling and part two considers topics related to career. At the start of every chapter there is a short story to illustrate the topic at hand. These topics are further expounded upon with "seasoned advice" from respected Christian leaders like Steve Arterburn, Max Lucado, and others. Each chapter closes with "points to ponder", which includes relevant Bible references and discussion questions.

This is the sort of book one may consider reading once a year and still come away with fresh insights in relation to their current life circumstances. I found it to be enlightening for my personal study, but am considering using it for a study with a small group. The "points to ponder" at the close of each chapter make it especially applicable for use in small groups. Whether for personal study or for use in a small group, this book is sure to cause you to consider important questions about your career and calling. I am confident you will be inspired to seek God's leading as you strive to move well beyond your current circumstances. I commend Colin Creel for writing this timely work. I pray that it will be used of God to transform our current and future workforce, so they might be moved away from the doldrums of listlessness and confusion towards a Godly calling and career.

Find Your Calling  Mar 14, 2008
God created us for a purpose. Finding our calling, purpose, career - what God wants us to do in our lives is something that all of us wrestle with. Some find out quickly in life, others find out later in life, and some never find out. This book is a wonderful guide and will help direct you to discover your own calling.

Scripture based, it is a good book for young adults to read before they decide what career they will choose. It is also good for those who are reexamining their life and searching for a new path to take.
I'm giving a copy to each of my "twentysomething" children.
 
Something to Think About  Feb 29, 2008
The author of this book does an excellent job challenging the reader to think through his or her values and ideals regarding career, family, and God given talents and abilities. It is so easy to get distracted by today's fast paced, instant gratification society where money is often a primary basis for so many decisions, including one's career. This book challenges the reader to take the time to assess God's ideals, personal values, and natural abilities and to determine if these critical elements are alligned in a potential career. The seasoned advice at the end of each chapter from experienced and successful Christians is most helpful and inspiring. This book will give its readers something to think about if they are willing to take the time to think critically through the philosophies and questions posed by Colin Creel.
 
Inspiring  Feb 19, 2008
As with his first book, Perspectives, Mr. Creel offers an uplifting, introspective examination of what is most important when making life decisions--what does God want for us? How can we merge our ambitions with His plan for us? How can we find meaning even in a career that doesn't seem particularly God-centered? Rather than simply providing a handbook for a successful "job search," he provides first the framework for self-examination that is necessary before pursuing the actual work itself. If you are looking to really delve into your calling and to find the work that will most inspire and satisfy you and God's plan for you, this book provides just that vehicle.
