Where is God in our day-to-day work? One answer is "God is with me when I am at work. We can contact Him when we need to and in various ways He helps us through the day." Another answer is "I do my work in a way that seeks to honour God. This affects how I act in the workplace and relate to colleagues."  

This book explores how our daily work can also reflect God's ongoing work in the world; and why our everyday occupations and activities are a vital channel through which He works to fulfil His present and future purposes. It does this by:
  • Taking a fresh look at biblical instructions on, and stories about work. 
  • Considering the views of some leading Christian theologians who connect God's work with ours.
  • Tracing important historical developments on work as vocation up to the present day.
  • Providing practical steps to help readers discern how much their work aligns with God's plans for their lives.
The book culminates with examples of the difference it makes to view our daily work as a divine vocation, and with a glimpse at the place of work in God's coming kingdom.
