According to financial expert Dave Ramsey, “Few categories of our lives define us and grow us spiritually, emotionally, relationally, and as people. Our work is one of those defining areas. Sadly, a "j-o-b" is what most people settle for. But as Dan Miller so powerfully points out in 48 Days to the Work You Love, “a calling lights up your life”. 

As a leading vocational thinker, New York Times best-selling author Dan Miller helps listeners better understand and organize their God-given skills, personality traits, values, dreams, and passions. In turn, they’ll see clear patterns form that point them toward successful career decisions.

48 Days to the Work You Love is packed with modern insight and timeless wisdom and provides a step-by-step process for creating a life plan and translating it into meaningful, satisfying daily work.

Alienating and uncomfortable. Religious rambling

Do you feel inspired by random stationery with biblical scriptures on it? Do you love psalm of the day calendars? Do you feel motivated by rambling preachers who can't get to the point and get so lost in bible quotes that they forget to actually say anything helpful?? If yes, you'll like this and you may get something out of it. If not, please don't waste your credit on it; I'm very unhappy that I can't return the book or exchange it for something less preachy. It feels about as deep as a getting card that can't think of anything to say other than a Bible quote and expect that to be helpful.

I was hoping as the chapters wore on he'd ease up on the Sunday school lectures and actually get around to useful life coaching advice that would be both practical and useful, but it felt like if he didn't have a Bible verse or analogy every other paragraph that he was worried that you'd forget that he was a preacher. I don't know how effective he is as a life coach; maybe he's only a life coach for Christians and your extremely religious aunt and uncle who don't believe in psychology but they're willing to listen to a peacher talk about it. But it made it feel very alienating and uncomfortable with a lot of eye rolling.

if I could return the book I would.

Mishmash of declarations and theology

Not at all what I’ve expected.
Rather than a systematic work this is a patchy collection of authors ideas (some of them are biased superficial stereotypes) and religious quotations (e.g. it took Jesus 48 days to pass through the desert).
If you’re looking for substance, pls look elsewhere.
