However, if you see this book as a series of thoughts about how Jesus might coach you if he were sitting across the table from you today, then you'll probably get a lot out of this book. It's very applicable to life, it will make you think and start asking yourself some challenging questions. But it's not really a justification for viewing Jesus as a life coach!

If you are searching for a guidebook to assist you in coaching people or nuts and bolts instruction on life skills development, you are going to be very disappointed.
I was looking for the later but have based my rating on the former. Laurie Beth Jones proves to be a very good devotional writer for today's Christian career woman.
Although the title talks about learning coaching from Jesus, the book really doesn't focus on learning how to coach--hence the three stars. If you are new to coaching or looking for a Christian coaching how-to, Coaching for Christian Leaders: A Practical Guide (TCP Leadership Series) or my Leadership Coaching: The Disciplines, Skills, and Heart of a Christian Coach focus more on practical tools, skills and models. I did really like The Path: Creating Your Mission Statement for Work and for Life by Jones--it has some excellent handles on creating life mission and value statements, and has more of a balance of practical tools and stories.
It's not. It reads like a daily devotional book. It's a fine devotional book too, but the title is wrong and misleading.
Furthermore, I had a bit of trouble relating to the author who seemed to be all business-woman whereas I've been a stay at home Mom for 18 years.
Because she was talking about the intimacy of life choices I would expect her to share a bit about why she never married. This was not the case.
IN sum, this book would be a nice gift for a seriously single working woman who needs a daily devotional.
I must say that has exceeded my expectations! I have not read the book completely yet, but it makes me stronger every day while reading , even one page per day gives me more open view what and how we should do - both in our personal and business life. Of course the book is written in a way that does not force me to do this or that but makes me think why the ancient wisdom is still actual and essential. Although the book is written by a Methodist (I am a Catholic), Laurie proves that we all belong to only one GOD and our main devotion is LOVE to God, people and the whole World.
By the way - I got the book very very quickly... I am from Poland in Europe (the book has not been translated into Polish yet) and I expected to get it in a month time, and actually I got in more than one week!
