I am the director of a career center at a Christian college and have looked at more books than I can remember, trying to find one that incorporated all the elements I was looking for: solid Biblical underpinning, excellent and respected assessments, material that reflected a sophisticated understanding of the highly complex nature of career decision making, and something that was usable with a group. Well, this is it. I couldn't be more pleased and my hat is off to the Brennfleck's for their remarkable accomplishment. I have chosen this book for my career class and would recommend it to anyone seeking clarity about vocation and calling for the Christian in a confusing and challenging time.

Format: Paperback
The practical information, assessments, and helps in "Live Your Calling" offer encouragement and hope as people seek the best way to use their personal strengths and gifts in their life work. This unique book can be used by individuals or for small group study (a small group study guide is included), as my church is doing. It is appropriate for young people making career decisions for the first time and for adults who want to review their mission in life.

This book is exacty what I have been looking for. I am the director of Career Services at Azusa Pacific College and it has been difficult to find a sophisticated book that brings Gods calling together with the pragmatic aspects of finding a career. I highly recommend this remarkable book to use with individuals, classes on life planning or in small groups.

I have used the Live Your Calling material as a guide to integrating my career and sense of purpose in life. It has been an awesome tool to provide practical empirically-based answers to the tough decisions of what vocational positions should I pursue and under what conditions that are best for me.

Kevin & Kay-Marie are no nonsense writers that dig beneath the surface and force you to come to grips with the bigger picture of our work. They help you see that your calling is comprised of your values, temperament, motivational patterns, personal history, family, purpose and more.

I think you will enjoy Live Your Calling as I have and it will provide a practical guide to finding your mission in life.

Format: Paperback
Live your calling is a great book for any stage of life. Younger people can be stretched in their thinking of how they really want to use the gifts that God has given them. For the mid-life generation it is a great way to discern God's purpose for the second half of your life.

You will not be disappointed.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By MBA Student on December 23, 2010
Format: Paperback
I have used the Live Your Calling material as a guide in my life. The answers are empirical and really helped me zero in on the vocational positions to pursue. The authors are pretty cool writers. They help you see that your calling is comprised of your values, temperament, motivational patterns, personal history, family, purpose and more. In many ways, the book is a superb complement to another book that I just read titled "The Career Journey" by author Ram Iyer. While "Live Your Calling" is focused a lot on finding the right job, "The Career Journey" focuses less on the finding of the job and more on what to do once you find it. Buy both together for a perfect set of books !!!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book has been great for introducing God's secondary calling on people's lives. However, I had to use it for a seminary class in which the book does not distinguish between vocational ministry and lay ministry. The book automatically assumes that all readers of the book are volunteer persons in a church. Therefore, it is hard to follow through as a seminary student.
