Reviews - What do customers think about Your Work Matters to God?

Highly Recommended  Mar 9, 2006
This book has totally changed my understanding of how God views work and how He cares about what we do!

I highly recommend this book for anyone who is discouraged in their current job, anyone who is trying to discern God's will for their career, and anyone who wants to understand a theology of work!

It is easy to read, but makes me think.
 
Yes, God Does Care About Your Work!  Jul 5, 2004
In my humble opinion, Sherman and Hendricks have written one of the best works I have ever read on integrating faith and career.

The book's major themes include:

1. The secular view of work vs. biblical view of work.
2. Despite the effects of sin in the workplace, God does care about our careers!
3. Working for God gives much more dignity to work instead of working just to satisfy and insecure ego (fleeting accomplishments and praise from fellow employees).

Included is an excellent section for those considering a call to the ministry. Food for thought: just because God may not call you to vocational ministry does not mean you and your work are insignificant! As a matter fact, more Christians need to see their current jobs as God's place for them to minister to others for His glory!

Read the book and be encouraged to have a different and eternal perspective on your job!

Highly recommended!

 
Life changing  Feb 4, 2002
Looking for this book on this site, because once again my loaned out copy somewhere got lost in the shuffle. Not the first time this happened to me, for this book. That's ok - it's helping get the word out!

This book is amazing, it changed my whole perspective on work, forever. I read it over 5 years ago, and am still impressed at how well the authors articulated God's purpose for work in our lives. Indeed, it's a form of worship. Should be required reading for every Christian, really.

 
Integrates Two Worlds -- Church & Work  Feb 12, 2001
Finding the teaching of Martin Luther on the Christian call and vocation, Sherman investigates and prepares a seminary dissertation on this topic.

Well done expose on Romans 12:1-2, how Christians do not see their calls as whatever work God gives them to do, that there they are His ambassadors, to carry His light and let it shine through them in whatever endeavors God equips them to do.

Work was there for humans even before the fall into sin, and thus this book does a great service to the church when it encourages it to take this significant area of our lives and let it still be part of our God given stewardship.

I used this successfully as a Bible study. Sherman and his company at that time had great additional materials, including a video, etc.

To go more into the background of all this, see Gustav Wingren's "On Vocation."

 
God is interested in every aspect of your life  Mar 19, 2000
Many Christians think that God is only interested in the `spiritual' things like going to church, evangelism. For many years, I suspect such views lack something but couldn't prove why. Is it possible that the God who creates my physical body and brains be so unconcern that I need to eat to live and that work is needed to produce food? Isn't Adam commanded to work in the garden? If work is really irrelevant to God, why are we spending half of our waking lives at work?

This book has addressed many of the burning questions. Yes, God is interested in every aspect of your life - your body, family & work! You can integrate religion with work and business! God has something to say about why he wants you to work, what kind of job to do and how to handle the unpleasant aspects of work, anything you name it.

If you seriously want to glorify God every minute of your life, you should not hesitate to spend a few hours reading this book that can change your eternity! Books like this is rare!
