Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Timothy Keller shows how God calls each of us to express meaning and purpose through our work and careers.

In a work world that is increasingly competitive and insecure, people often have nagging questions: Why am I doing this work? Why is it so hard? And is there anything I can do about it?

Tim Keller, pastor of New York's Redeemer Presbyterian Church and New York Times best-selling author of The Reason for God, has taught and counseled students, young professionals, and senior leaders on the subject of work and calling for more than 20 years. Now he puts his insights into a book for listeners everywhere, giving biblical perspectives on such pressing questions as:

  • What is the purpose of work?
  • How can I find meaning and serve customers in a cutthroat, bottom-line-oriented workplace?
  • How can I use my skills in a vocation that has meaning and purpose?
  • Can I stay true to my values and still advance in my field?
  • How do I make the difficult choices that must be made in the course of a successful career?

With deep insight and often surprising advice, Keller explains that biblical wisdom is immensely relevant to our questions about our work. In fact, the Christian view of work - that we work to serve others, not ourselves - can provide the foundation of a thriving professional and balanced personal life. Keller shows how excellence, integrity, discipline, creativity, and passion in the workplace can help others and even be considered acts of worship - not just of self-interest.

Great Book - lots of mistakes in the Audio version

What did you like about this audiobook?

I got the audiobook to follow along with my Kindle book. I take in more when I am reading and listening simultaneously. The book is great!

How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

The book itself is a great one to delve into the subject of Work from a Christian Worldview.

Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

Yes! I couldn't stop. I got so much out of the book

What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

Unfortunately, there are several places that the narrator mis-reads the text. Some of the places were simple little mistakes that make no difference in the way the passage is interpreted. But a few places were glaring errors that completely change the meaning of the passage. NOT GOOD.

Do you have any additional comments?

Proofing the work is essential!

Great listen for the working individual!

What did you like best about this story?

Timothy Keller effectively teaches listeners how the gospel affects every part of their work life. Before this book I knew very little on how I should relate the gospel to my job, but after listening I now feel encouraged and empowered to work for God in everything I do. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who seeks to serve God through their work.

It explains how to have a proper view of all we do

Tim Keller and Katherine Alsdorf have composed a book that challenges and encourages us about our perspectives of our time at work, leisure, and home.

Purpose for why we work

Timothy Keller nailed it. This whole ‘work life balance’ that the world pushes on us is
Inaccurate to our purpose and creation. Mr. Keller accurately paints the picture of true fulfillment through working as if for the Glory of God.

Helpful

For me, it was worth the read just to get to the last chapter - the work beneath the work and the rest beneath the rest was an arresting thought for me.

This was a very refreshing look at how we should view work.

I love this book because of how it helps us understand our view of work. I believe this view gives us much more peace and understanding when we include the Lord in our work.
