She taught readers how to be Christians in business. Now Jones, business consultant and author of the bestselling Jesus CEO, is helping readers find their ideal careers. Jones encourages readers to cultivate a vocation in which they can naturally and joyfully be fruitful. Each of the books chapters describes one of 12 dreams the Holy Spirit has for humans: to renew, revive, risk, etc. This framework doesnt offer a step-by-step process for job hunters; instead, it exposes the big questions anyone should face before making career decisions. No beach reading here: readers will work through auxiliary activities and apply ideas through reflection and action. Employing biblical examples and her own experiences, Jones coaches readers, directing them to decipher what bubbles up inside and can be poured into the world from your soul while youre working. Recognizing the complexities of career hunting, she also offers practical advice, résumé-writing techniques, and categorical prayers. For the many who are out of work or for those who just need a change, Joness wisdom may stir them to view work in a new light. (May) Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.
