Publisher's Description

Amidst the current economic and business realities, with high-pressure workplaces and simultaneous high unemployment, many Christian theologies of vocation seem unduly idealistic. Yet, as the West's desire for cheap consumer goods unleashes disturbing consequences across the globe, it is clear that our current vocational system poses major challenges to any moral case for prosperity. What would it really mean to think and act Christianly about our labor? Is it possible? In Good Work Esther Reed engagingly tackles these questions within a biblical framework, as she sketches a tangible and realistic theological ethic of work in the hope of God's coming kingdom.
