Product Description

Most Christians spend most of their waking hours working, yet many regard work as at best a necessary evil - just one more unfortunate by-product of humanity's fall from grace.

Not so, says Ben Witherington III, and in Work: A Kingdom Perspective on Labor, he considers work as neither the curse nor the cure of human life but, rather, as something good that God has given us to do.

In Work: A Kingdom Perspective on Labor, brief primer on the biblical theology and ethics of work, Witherington carefully unpacks the concept of work, considering its relationship to rest, play, worship, the normal cycle of human life, and the coming Kingdom of God.

Work as calling, work as ministry, work as a way to make a living, and the notably unbiblical notion of retirement - Witherington's Work engages these subjects and more, combining scholarly acumen with good humor, common sense, cultural awareness, and biblically based insights from Genesis to Revelation.

Endorsements

R. Paul Stevens,
author of The Other Six Days and Taking Your Soul to Work
Ben Witherington has given the whole people of God something desperately needed to make sense of Monday to Friday — a theology of work that breaks down the heretical sacred-secular distinction. . . . Offers a work-view and life-view that, if embraced, would revitalize the mission of God's people in the world. It's that good.
Lee Hardy,
author of The Fabric of This World
Conducting a critical dialogue with the theological voices of our day, drawing upon the wisdom of the Christian tradition, and offering a sensitive reading of New Testament parables, Witherington delivers sound counsel on the Kingdom meaning of work and its implications for our lives today.
