Publisher's Description

An in-depth historical, philosophical, theological--and practical--exploration of work from an evangelical perspective. Hardy discusses several historical views of work from the ancient Greeks onward, highlighting the Christian concept of vocation as articulated by Luther and Calvin; these expositions lead to practical applications regarding the personal issue of career choice and the important (but often neglected) social issue of job design.

Author Bio

Professor of philosophy at Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Michigan. He has written articles in the areas of philosophy and the theology of vocation.

Editorial Reviews

Theology Today
"This book is useful for those who seek to understand and interpret work in the modern world. It gives a realistic understanding of the complexity of the workplace and the complexity of working. . . It raises both the personal and the social and systematic issues surrounding work. It addresses those looking to enter the world of work, those already at work, those whose work is not paid work or employment work, and those who have responsibility for the form and character of the workplace."
