Why Did I Lose My Job
If God loves me?
Help and Hope During Career Transition
Rick J. Pritikin ©2013
Zondervan Publisher
ISBN 978-0-310-42944-9
133 pp. plus 10 pp. of Verses of Hope (ppbk)

Pritikin has written thirty-one short pieces about various aspects of job lose and recovery. He includes lined pages for adding personal notes between each devotional. The final ten pages list hundreds of verses giving hope from God during difficult times, such as when job hunting.

Anyone losing a job has normal questions and anxieties. This author addresses such things as Did God really intend this job loss for my good? What can we discover in the midst of trials? Various other helpful insights include why it seems God is slow in answering our prayers. Pritikin reminds us that during hardships we must be patient and trust God for the right answers.

I especially liked his comments on the difference between being active and being productive. It’s far too easy to be busy with activities that don’t move us toward our goals. We may actually avoid productivity in everyday life, not just during job seeking.

The book reads easily, with personal stories and good writing. Pritikin, a former VP of Thomas Nelson Publishers and COO of Hunt Bros. Pizza, founded Christian Fellowship and Placement Ministries, Inc., a career coaching firm in the Nashville, TN area. He regularly teaches and speaks about career needs.

About samcivy

I read my first book a week after beginning first grade and haven't slowed down in seventy years. My system often wakes me in the night so I keep books on a chair in the bathroom and do a LOT of reading. I'm a free-lance writer/editor and review books for various authors as well as Thomas Nelson Publishers and Amazon.com. I will soon be posting books for a blog tour by KathyWillis.com, a book promoter.
