Publisher's Summary

Do we work to live or live to work? In today's increasingly competitive and insecure economic environment, we often question the reason for work: Why am I doing this? Why is it so hard? And what can I do about it?
Work may seem just a means to an end: we do it to earn the money to enjoy life outside the workplace. Here, Timothy Keller argues that God's plan is radically more ambitious: he actually created us to work. We are to work together to make the world a better place, to help each other, and so to find purpose for our lives.
Our faith should enhance our work, and our work should develop our faith. With deep insight Timothy Keller draws on essential and relevant biblical wisdom to address our questions about work. There is grace available if we have taken the wrong attitude, idolising money and using our careers to glorify ourselves rather than God.
This book provides the foundations for a work-life balance where we can thrive both personally and professionally. Keller shows how, through excellence, integrity, discipline, creativity and passion in the workplace, we can impact society for good. Developing a better attitude toward work releases us to serve others humbly and to worship God every day and leaves us deeply fulfilled.
