Publisher's summary

Businessman Hugh Whelchel provides a thorough, deeply-satisfying Biblical answer to the age-old question, "Does my work matter to God?"

Many Christians struggle to make sense of their faith and work. Some are taught the only value in their work is evangelism among their coworkers and earning money to donate to the church and missions. With more than 25 years working in the business sector, Hugh Whelchel was just that guy. He knew there had to be more. His thorough investigation reveals the eternal significance of work within the grand, Biblical story of God's mission throughout history.

In How Then Should We Work, discover:

  • The rich biblical meaning of work - from Genesis to Revelation
  • The difference between work, vocation, and calling as a Christian
  • The history of the Christian view on work
  • The call to "reweave shalom" through your job
  • How to live a life of deep significance

"A biblically-based and compelling argument supporting the integration of faith and work into a noble calling to serve God in the marketplace." (Steve Reinemund, Dean of Business, Wake Forest University Schools of Business and Retired Chairman and CEO, PepsiCo)

"Our vocation: Curse or obsession? Hugh Whelchel lays out the biblical case that our work is neither a necessary evil nor the center of our self-worth. It's God's holy calling through which we use our God-given talents for the furtherance of His ultimate plan - the Kingdom of God." (Hon. John Scott Redd, Vice Admiral, U.S. Navy (Ret.) and First Director of the U. S. National Counterterrorism Center, NCTC)

"Hugh Whelchel's work comes at a critical time when both the church and the culture in general are questioning the purpose and value of work. His solid examination of the biblical teaching on work is an excellent starting point for anyone wrestling with these issues." (J. Michael Thigpen, Executive Director of the Evangelical Theological Society)
