Book by Bryan Chapell

This book is a great read for anyone who finds work difficult, enjoyable and everything in between. Brian brings the Bible’s view of life and work to look at integrity, purpose, success, leadership and so much more. It is not your typical academic theology book and makes for a refreshing and easy read.

Throughout the book, our worldview and deep beliefs are challenged as they influence how we perceive work with all its troubles and wins. The way that evil impacts each of us individually as well as the general nature of the world plays out every day through our work. Likewise, our understanding of the glory that work can bring to God affects the joy we have in work.

For light reading that impacts your daily work, this book is worth the time.

Work & the New Creation

Mark Stephens considers how the Christian hope for our future influences the way in which we approach work in the present.
