Publisher's Description

How the Christian should look at work.


Overview

What is work, and where did it originate? Besides economic necessity, why do people work? As followers of Christ, what should characterize our work, and how should we feel about it? While most of us will spend a significant portion of our lives on the job, it seems only a few of us will find meaning and fulfillment in what we do. Is the secret a new job, or a new attitude toward the one we have?
