Master of One: Find and Focus on the Work You Were Created to Do

Jordan Raynor. WaterBrook, $24 (240p) ISBN 978-0-525-65333-2
Entrepreneur Raynor (Called to Create) helps Christians find and home in on their God-glorifying talents in this empowering work. He explains how God’s call for excellence should set the standard in any Christian’s professional and personal life. Glorifying God through one’s vocation, he writes, will also gain the respect of others. Raynor provides illuminating profiles of accomplished Christians—such as Emily Ley, founder of popular organizational planner company Simplified, and television’s Fred Rogers, both of whom did not realize their passions without first experiencing setbacks, uncertainty, and circuitous career paths, but remained steady in their faith and dedication before eventually succeeding. These examples will encourage readers who are unsure of how to find a worthy, engaging career to commit to prayerfully approaching the practice and mastery of one skill, which Raynor believes is the most effective way of finding a fulfilling career. Raynor walks readers through the process choosing and mastering a vocation through the exploration of interests and passions, elimination of distractions, submitting to the teaching of other masters, and practicing discipline in the name of glorifying God. Raynor’s sage advice will be of help to any Christian seeking guidance in finding their divine professional purpose. (Jan.)
