Item description for A Theology of Work: Work and the New Creation (Paternoster Theological Monographs) by Darrell Cosden & Jurgen Moltmann...

Through dialogue with Moltmann, Pope John Paul II, and others, this book develops a genitive theology of work, presenting a theological definition of work and a model for a theological ethics of work that shows work nature, value and meaning now and eschatological. Work is shown to be a transformative activity consisting of three dynamically interrelated dimensions the instrumental, relational, and ontological.

Publishers Description
Given that so much of our contemporary lives are spent working and that so many major decisions and issues in life revolve around our work, it is surprising just how little serious theological reflection there is on the subject. A Theology of Work: Work and the New Creation makes work itself the subject of theological enquiry. From within Christian doctrine it asks the pressing questions 'what is work and work's place in God's economy and thus, how should we be carrying out our work?' Through dialogue with J rgen Moltmann, Pope John Paul II and others, this book develops a genitive 'theology of work'. It offers a normative theological definition of work and a model for a theological ethics of work that shows work's nature, value and meaning now, and, quite uniquely, eschatologically related to the new creation. Throughout the book it is argued that work in its essence is about transformation and, as such, it is an activity consisting of three dynamically interrelated dimensions: the instrumental, relational, and ontological.

Reviews - What do customers think about A Theology of Work: Work and the New Creation (Paternoster Theological Monographs)?

A great discussion of the theological meaning of human work  Aug 17, 2009
An excellent book on the the theological meaning of human work. Although work usually occupies the majority of our working hours, the typical protestant or evangelical views of the nature and meaning of work are incredibly shallow. This book is really good on several levels. In its own right it explores the meaning of work, in its instrumental, relational and ontological aspects, all of which the author says are equal. It is this third aspect, the ontological, which is the main focus of the book, because the two other aspects are common is the previous protestant and catholic discussions on work, while the ontology of work has been neglected. In short the author develops an ontology of work in relationship with both Creation and New Creation, though the latter has primacy, for 'the End is more than the Beginning'. The author contends that work is ontologically part of human beings, and that this will remain so in the New Creation. Although, the focus is on work, the book also has a good discussion on the meaning of the 'imago dei' in Genesis 1-2, and also has, although limited in scope, an excellent introduction and discussion of the theology of Jurgen Moltmann. Overall, a really good and interesting book, though I will have to work out the theological and practical implications of the it.
