This publication, aimed at persons in pastoral work in religious settings, reviews a large number of works on the topics of vocation, the meaning of work, unemployment, and underemployment. It provides suggestions for pastors and others to use in working with the unemployed and with persons at transitional periods. It is also suitable for persons in such situations to use to help themselves. The book consists of nine chapters that focus on the following topics: introduction to resources and some insight into job trends; youth; young adult; parenting; dual-career households; midcareer transitions; unemployment and underemployment; preretirement and retirement; and clergy and vocation. Numerous resources are cited throughout, mostly worked into the narrative. Information is provided on sources and prices. (KC)
