Connecting Your Work to God s Work
New York Times bestselling author Timothy Keller shows how God calls on each of us to express meaning and purpose through our work and careers.
Tim Keller, pastor of New York’s Redeemer Presbyterian Church and the New York Times bestselling author of The Reason for God, has taught and counseled students, young professionals, and senior leaders on the subject of work and calling for more than twenty years. Now he pulls his insights into a thoughtful and practical book for readers everywhere.
With deep conviction and often surprising advice, Keller shows readers that biblical wisdom is immensely relevant to our questions about work today. In fact, the Christian view of work—that we work to serve others, not ourselves—can provide the foundation of a thriving professional and balanced personal life. Keller shows how excellence, integrity, discipline, creativity, and passion in the workplace can help others and even be considered acts of worship—not just of self-interest.
“Sometimes the obvious ways of bringing Christ to work are talking to people about Jesus, or setting up a Bible study. But this book is not about this. It’s about how God designed us for work, and how we are receiving that calling. Am I living out my true calling in my work. In addition we need to view our work through the Gospel worldview and benefit as many people as possible through the work we do.”
“This book is a game-changer. I started reading it because I had an inkling that my theology on work was lacking, and that inkling was immediately confirmed. “Lacking” was an understatement. I had no idea the good and holy things God has for us in work- *all kinds* of work. Getting to digest and discuss these ideas has changed the way I view the world and my place in it!”
