About the Author:

T. D. Jakes is the CEO of TDJ Enterprises, LLP; founder and senior pastor of The Potter’s House of Dallas, Inc., which has over 30,000 members; and the author of Soar! and the New York Times bestselling Maximize the Moment and God’s Leading Lady. Time magazine and CNN referred to him as “America’s Best Preacher.”

From Booklist:

How many of us dread waking up on a weekday . . and trundling in to yet another less-than-happy day at the workplace? Texas-based bishop T. D. Jakes--author of Maximize the Moment (2000), among other books, and pulpit raconteur and on-air celebrity--summarizes his new approach to vocations by drawing on the stories in the Bible, and on quotes and prayers based on that liturgy. Imploring all to remember that God has reasons for people to stay and leave jobs, and that work is all about fulfilling missions, he articulates his 10 commandments, and the benefits of looking at work through positive and spiritual lenses. Order number two, for instance, admonishes readers not to "expect to be appreciated"; he goes on to explain that to strive for that is to pander to please people, not to please a higher being. In his fifth "thou shalt," he offers alternatives to letting work get the best of you: consider exercise, find new relationships, take advantage of vacation, among others. The end goal? To enlighten, inspire, and energize. Barbara Jacobs
