Product Description

The Christian faith offers a unique and enriching perspective on the activities that occupy our waking hours. Yet very few works attempt to analyze and apply the biblical principles that relate to work and leisure. With this book, Leland Ryken hopes to change that, reframing labor and leisure around God's purposes for a holistic lifestyle. This work addresses key issues concerning toil and play. The author defines the nature of work and leisure, explains the problems they present, and offers solutions. Ryken finds the answers in Scripture and in the rich heritage of theological thinking. He weaves together insights drawn from a wide array of sources - social science, literature, history, theology, and biblical studies. The result is one of te most informed and practical studies on our day-to-day activities.
