4.0 out of 5 stars Well up to the Linns' standard 21 Sep 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I like the Linns' books and this one matches up to their usual standard, thoughtful, personal, profound and searching - you have to take time to read it and reflect on their insights, and on what the book shows you about yourself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sealed Orders 25 Jan 2000
By Fiona Mackintosh - Published on Amazon.com
This book was recommended to me by my godmother. My faith background was strongly scriptural but lacked meaning. This book has enabled me to connect with a sense of purpose and life that each of us shares a special connection with God. That He created us with a specific purpose and gave us gifts to enable us to engage in our mission for Him. That He placed His Great Seal on those orders and sent us to earth. This book enabled me to look at the work that I do with a greater understanding of why I find it so spiritually draining even though I am "good at it" in the natural. Thank you Dennis, Matthew and Sheila for sharing God's words and helping us all remember why we are here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Symbolic approach to looking at your life's purpose 9 Mar 2007
By Eric Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I loved this book - it uses a nice story telling approach to demonstrating a non-literal approach to looking at your life's purpose - avoids some of the more formal and less humanistic approaches to looking at life - great read when you are looking to bring back humanity into your life's purpose.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book that tackles the difficult question of meaningful work 17 Oct 2013
By jmm095454 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Many out there say that our work ethic has gone down, and people are just too lazy, and think they are entitled to benefits. Not so. This book explains the issue dealing with working is that we have no purpose in our work. And I strongly agree. Today, we are under so much pressure to adapt to a system where we trade living a meaningful life just to survive. We are expected to work for a giant corporation, where we just sit around slaving to meaningless work that in the end does nothing for humanity at large, but protects the power of Corporations, and fattens the CEO's paycheck. Now many maybe saying that it is not realistic or practical to find your own purpose in life, and your taking foolish risks. I say not. We are not promised that it will be easy to go with our sealed orders. Sure, we may have to deal with social pressures. We may not make as much money. And it sure is not easy to get started. But people are not looking for easy, they are looking for fulfillment. Unlike what we see in the workforce, people looking for easy. This is only because a challenge going nowhere, with no fulfillment is just meaningless labor. And I can see why so many are dissatisfied.

I found this book reassuring, after seeing myself in the circumstances that the Linns describe. I feared I was lazy. I learned that I knew I had a greater calling than slaving away at a meaningless job. I am currently in the process of working my way out of a meaningless job. This book also was a relief to trust my own intuition. No mission statement, popular opinions, or corporate cliches stand up to the God given intuition within.

5.0 out of 5 stars Forget the "Purpose Driven Life" 31 Oct 2009
By Susan Fisher - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
THIS is the orginal: if you are seeking a refined, self-guided, well-written-to-provoke-you aid to help you define your 'reason for being', this is the best I've seen. I have bought it for several friends, and have suggested it to therapy clients. All because, 10 years ago, I found it and used it for myself. I remain grateful.

This book is well done, quite pleasant in its writing. The three authors, brothers Linn and the wife of one, share their voices throughout. You don't feel like you are merely reading, but being involved in a thoughtful conversation.

At the end of each section/chapter, there are steps to do to consider and integrate the conversations into your own thought process. I recommend you consider getting a note book to jot down your responses. Or write in the book and keep it private. (I have my own private copy, and always keep another un-touched for others to peruse when I tell them about it.)

I also enjoy this for group work. I have used it once it its entirety (their is a section on how to do this at the end of the book). But it is also excellent for starting conversations about what matters most to you, helping yourself or others discover roadblocks to becoming, getting past times of discouragement and becoming okay with a joyful, successful life.
