For some people work is tedious and boring. They cannot wait until the weekend. For others, work is their life, they cannot imagine their lives without it. Both of these perspectives lack a biblical framework for how to approach work and the workplace. This booklet offers an understanding of Godly vocation that will help balance an out of balance lifestyle.
Do you find work boring and unfulfilling? Does it consume your time and attention? Here is a biblical framework for an eternal perspective on work, which is ordained by God to have meaning and purpose.
Stephen J. Nichols (PhD, Westminster Theological Seminary) is president of Reformation Bible College and chief academic officer of Ligonier Ministries. He is also author of Jonathan Edwards: A Guided Tour of His Life and Thought and Martin Luther: A Guided Tour of his Life and Thought.
Basics of the Faith booklets introduce readers to basic Reformed doctrine and practice. On issues of church government and practice they reflect that framework - otherwise they are suitable for all church situations.
Christians may hold a job, but they are called to a vocation. The loss of a Christian concept of vocation has come at a great cost, leaving many Christians unsure of how their work is to relate to their Christian faithfulness. Stephen Nichols new book comes right on time affirming and explaining the Christian understanding of vocation. Even as so many people are reconsidering their career opportunities and plans for the futures, What is Vocation? takes that question to a whole new level. In the end, faithfulness to Christ is what matters, and understanding our vocation is essential to Christian discipleship.
