Publisher's Summary

We were created by an infinitely creative God to reflect his love and character to the world. One way we do that is by continuing his creative work.

In this energizing book, serial entrepreneur and best-selling author Jordan Raynor helps artists, entrepreneurs, writers, and other creatives re-imagine our work as service to God and others, addressing such penetrating questions as:

  • Is my work as a creative really as God-honoring as that of a pastor or missionary?
  • What does it look like to create a name for myself but to glorify God and serve others?
  • How can I use my work to fulfill Jesus' command to create disciples?
  • Will what I make today matter in eternity?

To answer these questions, Raynor shares compelling stories from an eclectic group of more than 40 Christian entrepreneurs, including the founders of Toms Shoes, Charity: Water, Chick-fil-A, In-N-Out Burger, Guinness, HTC, and Sevenly, as well as nontraditional entrepreneurs such as C. S. Lewis, Johann Sebastian Bach, and J. R. R. Tolkien. Raynor's "show"-rather-than-"tell", story-driven style makes you feel as if you are sitting at the feet of some of the godliest and most successful entrepreneurs of all time.

Perfectly poised to reach today's growing creative class, this unique work restores God's position as the first entrepreneur, helping listeners see the eternal value in the work they do today.

Great all around book on balancing work and faith.

This book has discussed and shed light on issues that I have been considering for quite a while. I think there needs to be more discussion on this topic within books. Great job Jordan!

A New Classic

I’ve read a lot of books about creativity (The Artisan Soul, Culture Making, Every Good Endevour, etc.) and I was a little concerned this would just say the same things as those, but Jordan really adds a lot of unique perspective to his stories.

I was also happy to find myself enjoying the entrepreneurial side of this book far more than I thought I would. I never saw myself as one, but now I see that all creatives are entrepreneurs as well.

Since reading it, it’s subtley changed the way I do business, strengthening my calling and identity in what I’m called to do as a creative and business owner.

I’d highly recommend this book. It will become a new classic for a modern era.
