The Good of Work

$20.00 inc. GST

If there is one aspect of our everyday life with God that needs fuller, richer reflection, it is work. We spend the majority of our waking hours in paid and unpaid employment, and yet when it comes to understanding work’s place in God’s purposes, good learning can be hard to come by. Many of us address this crucial gap in our understanding by trying to divide reality in two: there’s work, and then there’s the rest—community, family, God, faith, and so on. That’s why we’ve created The Good of Work: to help you to engage hopefully and practically with the challenges of work and faith, without having to divide your life.

 

So, whether you’re an architect or arborist, dog-walker or dentist, teacher aide or trade negotiator, what is the meaning of work? Is it simply food on the table and money in the offering bag, or might your work in fact be a means of bringing glory to God? Why is work so often hard, a matter of toil and trouble? How does Christ redeem all work, and what might this mean for the daily grind?

 

These are the questions The Good of Work addresses. A slow, beautiful, device-free read, The Good of Work offers thought-provoking reflections, fresh engagement with Scripture, original photography, fascinating interviews and practical application. There is more to work—so much more. Come journey with us.
