Item description for Responsive Labor: A Theology of Work by David H. Jensen...

Overview
Most Christians work outside the church, so for many-if not most-of us, daily labor seems divorced from Christian beliefs and ethics. Work is an inevitable factor of human existence, and yet we do not have appropriate theological resources to help us reflect on its nature and meaning in light of Christian understanding and contemporary American culture. How can we as Christians understand our work as a dimension of our faith? After several years of extensive research, which included numerous interviews with working Christians across the United States, David Jensen provides a full look at the issue, taking seriously the situation of workers in American society and drawing on the insights of liturgical, practical, and constructive theology. What results is an insightful theological investigation into daily labor in light of Christian faith.
