There are many books on vocation, and many that focus on our relationship to God. But Keller's Every Good Endeavor is not about our relationship to God but rather about the relationship of our daily work to God's work in the world and how we further God's work through our own.
How can this be done? How can this be done in an increasingly competitive, insecure, and ever more demanding work environment of modern America? Keller asks these fundamental questions:
- What is the purpose of work?
- How can I find meaning and serve customers in a cutthroat, bottom-line-oriented workplace?
- How can I use my skills in a vocation that has meaning and purpose?
- Can I stay true to my values and still advance in my field?
- How do I make the difficult choices that must be made in the course of a successful career?

Tim Keller, pastor of New Yorks Redeemer Presbyterian Church and the New York Times bestselling author of The Reason for God, has taught and counseled students, young professionals, and senior leaders on the subject of work and calling for more than twenty years. Now he pulls his insights into a thoughtful and practical book for readers everywhere.
With deep conviction and often surprising advice, Keller shows readers that biblical wisdom is immensely relevant to our questions about work today. In fact, the Christian view of workthat we work to serve others, not ourselvescan provide the foundation of a thriving professional and balanced personal life. Keller shows how excellence, integrity, discipline, creativity, and passion in the workplace can help others and even be considered acts of worshipnot just of self-interest.
Katherine Leary Alsdorf worked twenty-five years in the high-tech industry as an economic analyst and in various executive leadership positions.
