    What is the driving passion of your life, that one thing that brings you more satisfaction than the world?

    Are you getting the maximum return on your talents? Would you say that your life is characterized by joy? Jesus wants our joy to be “full” (John 15:11); how can we truly experience this in the middle of our often joyless and mundane existence?

    Using the Parable of the Talents as an outline, this book walks the reader through a prayerful analysis of the passions and gifts given him by God, and how to make the most of them in this life. If we are His workmanship (Ephesians 2:10), then He must have an explicit mission for us to accomplish.

    Interspersed among the pages are stories of people who have discovered God’s mission for their lives and have experienced joy living beyond themselves. Their goal: to hear God say, “Well done, good and faithful servant.”

    SO WHAT?
    I don’t know how brick and mortar bookstores actually make any sales of these tiny books since you can usually finish reading it before you even get to the checkout line. To guard against such a casual reading, the author was careful to put some meaty, introspective questions at the end of each chapter, which add to the impact of the book.

    Socrates famously said, “The unexamined life is not worth living.” The Biblical prophet Haggai warned his countrymen, “Consider your ways!” Jesus told us all in Luke 16:10, “He who is faithful in a very little thing is faithful also in much.” Clearly the injunction to stop and analyze the direction of our lives is a wise one.

    The author’s intended audience lives in the part of the world where one may freely pursue and find relative success in his passions and gifts. However, this privilege is still foreign to much of the world. We must be careful that we find the source of our joy in God alone and not in our accomplishments.

    One nitpicky exegetical point to mention: the author takes the parable of the talents, a reference to future judgment, and unabashedly applies the reward of joy to the present instead. While there is no question from other texts (John 10:10; 15:11; 16:24; 17:13) that Jesus intends His joy for the here and now, we dare not read into a parable beyond what Jesus said (2 Timothy 2:15).
