The last few years have witnessed a flurry of books that treat a Christian view of work. This is the best of them. Well written, historically comprehensive, theologically informed, exegetically sensitive, this is now the "must read" volume on the subject.
"I am grateful for mentors like Dan Doriani, whose insights draw us back to the truths that guide us in loving God and living well. In this latest volume, Dan reminds us that the first 'Great Commission' happened in Genesis, when God charged Adam and Eve (and us) to tend God's garden and exercise dominion over his creation. With characteristic wisdom and practical guidance, Dan paints a compelling vision for all good work. He also dismantles the false dichotomy between work that is 'sacred' and work that is 'secular' -- for God has instilled creative and redemptive significance in the calling of executives, artists, sanitation workers, landscapers, and homemakers, just as he has done for pastors and missionaries. Together, we are all commissioned and 'sent' workers in God's field. For these and many other reasons, I highly commend to you this book."
A concise yet comprehensive must read for the thoughtful and committed Christian embedded in the secular workplace. Dan Doriani has masterfully captured the nuances of the 21st century work-a-day world covering a wide range of topics from discerning God�s calling to dealing with difficult corporate situations and contemporary dilemmas such as overwork and underemployment. Doriani skillfully explains pertinent theological principles in everyday language, lacing his narrative with compelling true-life illustrations and applications. Whether answering God�s calling on the shop floor, the corporate office, or the home, this book provides practical and theologically sound answers.
