A delightful read Dec 30, 2006
What a surprisingly insightful read! This book gives an all rounded view of our vocation, our design & our purpose. Not many are engaged in full time ministry & it's certainly comforting & encouraging to know that even for those of us who don't, God has not forgotten us! God cares about our "secular" work too. Bring God to your workplace and find new meaning to your work & ministry.
It is a ministry finder, not a career finder. Nov 3, 2005
Just based on the title there could be some confusion. This is infact a tool for finding a ministry. Be that as it may, it's a tool more designed for Theology students to pick just which part of the field they're looking to go into. Granted most in ministries who will use this book will be looking for paid positions it doesn't make this book a general career finder. Going by just the title you'd think this could be a book to help anyone find their career in anything. It's not. It's more specific then that. But hey, that's why us avid book readers read the books description, right!? All in all it's a fairly helpful book if you need clarification on the path of ministry you are choosing. However, if you're trying to decide between computer science and teaching, well, a better book would be 'What Color is your Parachute'.
Not What I Needed! Jan 8, 2003
I ordered this book thinking it would help me to clarify job decisions and what I found instead was an irritatingly religious, moralizing, Christian work on finding your "mission"/ job. That is fine if that is what you are looking for; otherwise stay far away.
Deceptive Description Jan 8, 2003
It was an unpleasant surprise for me to open this book and find an irritatingly religious, moralizing, Christian guide to clarifying one's mission/best job fit. If that is what you're looking for, fine. Otherwise, I would stay away . . .far away.
Finding a Job You Can Love Mar 2, 2000
This book had a profound impact on my professional and personal life. It helped me to identify those inherent gifts (talents) which I possess and gave me specific insights into how best to apply them. In fact, after reading the book, I contacted Rallph Mattson and went through his Motif process (based upon the book). From this report they prepared a "best use" analysis which I regularly share with my management in discussions of next assignments and promotions. It has helped me and them to jointly make career decisions that benefit me and the company. The book's philosophical basis is supported by a new book (1999) by Gallup "First Break all the Rules". After interviewing 40,000 people in 800 companies, they found that the one thing that most negatively impacts an organization's ability to reach its full potential is its inability to tap into and utilize the unique, inherent talents of each person in the organization. The one thing Gallup does not offer is a means of identifying those talents and putting them to use. Ralph Mattson (who published his book well in advance of Gallup's) has a proven, effective means of doing that. I strongly urge anyone who is or has ever wondered if there was something else that would make them feel fulfilled or give them a sense of peace and contentment, to read this book.
