The Gospel at Work
Sebastian Traeger & Greg Gilbert
According to Sebastian Traeger and Greg Gilbert, both idolatry of work and idleness on the job are deadly misunderstandings of how God intends for us to think about our employment. Whether you’ve made an idol of work or find yourself being idle at work, this book helps reminds us that whom you work for is infinitely more important than what you do.
Most Christians fall into one of two main problems when it comes to work: Either they are idle in their work, or they have made an idol of it. According to the authors, both of these mindsets - idleness in work and idolatry of work - are deadly misunderstandings of how God intends for people to think about their employment.
In this updated and expanded edition of The Gospel at Work, Sebastian Traeger and Greg Gilbert answer some of the tough questions that Christians in the workplace often ask, like:
What factors should matter most in choosing a job?
How should I think about how to treat my boss, my co-workers, and my employees?
Is full-time Christian work more valuable than my job?
Is it ok to be motivated by money?
How do you prioritize - or balance - work, family and church responsibilities?
Solidly grounded in the gospel, The Gospel at Work confronts both idleness at work and the idolatry of work with a challenge of its own; a call for Christians to remember that whom they work for is infinitely more important than what they do. This updated and expanded edition includes additional chapters on discerning your calling and the unique challenges of being a woman in the workplace. It also includes expanded content on what it means to utilize your work as mission and how to wisely address ethical dilemmas you might face in your job.
