    “Hinge Moments” is a good read for anyone dealing with a current or anticipating a future life transition. Whether a job loss/career change, moving into a new season of life, children leaving the home, changes in personal health, etc., transitions are a normal part of life. How we deal with the transitions or choices we make concerning the transition/opportunity affects the course of our lives. Around 150 pages, the book covers many topics on the subject, including:

    – Why changes can hurt us.

    – Learning to trust (God, other people, etc.) during the transition.

    – The importance of being flexible in your transition.

    – Ways we can grow in our transition.

    – Suggestions for dealing with the change in our lives.

    There are several things I liked about the title:

    – Well-written and easy to understand.

    – While written from a Christian perspective, the book is not full of pious platitudes and is full of practical suggestions.

    – Covers a wide variety of topics on life’s transitions.

    – Smoothly transitions from chapter to chapter.

    – A good mix of biblical examples, people from history, the author’s own experiences, and studies that concern people dealing with transitions.

    A good title for anyone either dealing with a current life transition or anticipating a potential future life change. Recommended. I was given a review copy by IVP in exchange for a fair review and appreciate the opportunity.
