How does work fit into a meaningful, God-honoring life? For some, the answer comes quickly. Others have a tough time connecting their job to their faith. Are we just to work hard, avoid immorality, and witness to coworkers?

Questions about work should go even deeper.

  • Does all work really matter? Does it matter equally?
  • Is being “true to your craft” the same thing as being faithful at work?
  • How can you use your work to promote the good of your neighbor, mankind, and the world?

The product of twenty years of thought and hundreds of interviews, Work goes beyond historical background and inspiring stories to explain the Bible’s teaching on the nature, glory, misery, and eventual restoration of work. Through our work, whatever it may be, we have an opportunity to love our neighbors as ourselves—and to serve God in transforming his world.


“An important contribution. . . . Provocative and helpful.”

—Timothy Keller

“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.”

—D. A. Carson, Research Professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

“With a high view of creation, a great love for the gospel, and the hope of Christ’s kingdom stirring in his heart, Dan has given us a wonderful introduction to a biblical theology of work. It is accessible, practical, and brimming with Dan’s wonderful personality.”

—Scotty Smith, Pastor Emeritus, Christ Community Church, Franklin, Tennessee
