About the Book

Many excellent books have been written on the subject of how to get a job, and it is not my goal to add another to the library shelves. This study seeks to examine employment and unemployment from a Biblical perspective and will hopefully make suitable companion reading for other self-help books. If the Bible is—as many people say—God’s operating manual for successful living, then surely it will be our source of needed wisdom to cope with every life situation, including joblessness.

Contrary to the opinion of some people, the Bible has great relevance in today’s world. I have discovered a virtual gold mine of guidance, instruction, and encouragement for those who would turn to God’s Word in times of unemployment. Like gold, however, the nuggets are seldom found on the surface; they must be discovered through some effort. They are found embedded in the principles governing God’s kingdom that are scattered throughout the Bible. These principles will not only teach us how we should live, but also how we can make a living.

About the Author

Wayne Bradfield worked for the Canadian government in its human resources department for a span of thirty years, helping the unemployed to find work, and helping employers to locate suitable workers. While he made his living as a manager, his favorite pastime was teaching Sunday school, and leading many home Bible studies along with his wife Sherron.

While teaching evening courses on Creative Job Search Techniques for his department, Wayne began dreaming of conducting a series of Bible centered job clubs through his church. Thus began a search of the Bible for passages that could bring hope and understanding to unemployed persons. Most of the material for this study was developed over the ensuing years, but because the last half of his government tenure involved a great deal of travel, the dream for a job club never materialized.

Over the years, Wayne has shared his notes with a good number of unemployed persons, and received encouragement from many to publish them. And so, here they are.

Wayne and Sherron live in Cambridge, Ontario, Canada. They have three grown children and a growing number of grandchildren and great grandchildren.
